Overrated, Great singing, Dated, Cliched, Entertaining

See it if you like to relive movies.This has nothing new to say, & it shouldn't.If you've seen the movie or the NY show, don't bother.It's a duplicate

Don't see it if you are looking for something new.It is well staged and well performed.But she is no Julia Roberts.She is very talented but not adorable.

Dated, Great singing, Fluffy, Cliched

See it if you are a fan of the movie, and want an entertaining night out to see a show that doesn't make you think deeply.

Don't see it if you want to see a refined, well-crafted piece of theatre.

Dated, Romantic

See it if you loved the film enough to want to see it recreated on stage. The costumes, staging, acting and singing are are all competent enough.

Don't see it if you’re expecting more than a derivative musical with a completely forgettable score- even if it is by Bryan Adams- and a lacklustre story.

Time Out London
December 12th, 2021

‘Pretty Woman: The Musical’ is a good times and low expectations sort of show that does the minimum expected of it, and no more... cynical, soulless, nostalgia cash-in.

For a previous production

Yes, it’s a musical about prostitution, but this adaptation of the 1990 Julia Roberts/Richard Gere rom-com is a triumph of exuberant zest over dodgy subject matter. It matches the charm of the film but has a subversive energy all its own.

The Telegraph (UK)
March 2nd, 2020
For a previous production

Yet this is essentially the same Pretty Woman, with cut-and-pasted dialogue and carbon-copy clothing to match the original, only with added song and dance to offset the lack of close-ups.

The Guardian (UK)
March 2nd, 2020
For a previous production

The score by Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance often veers into the bland...the nascent love story between Giulio and Mr Thompson feels, for a time, like there’s another, more daring musical fighting to get out of this one.

The Times (UK)
March 3rd, 2020
For a previous production

If you’re not a fan of the film, there is no reason to buy a ticket for Jerry Mitchell’s production. But if you’re seeking to relive popcorn memories, you will have fun muttering along with the romcom’s snappiest lines.

March 2nd, 2020
For a previous production

If Pretty Woman – The Musical had any conscience it would adapt itself to the actors performing it and to the era in which it has been launched. That it simply wants to be a facsimile of a once popular movie, reveals the ugliness at its core.

London Theatre
March 2nd, 2020
For a previous production

If Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance's score lacks serious break-out hits of its own, there's at least a curtain call reprise of Roy Orbison's famous 1964 hit single that gave the original film its title to send you out on a high.

The Arts Desk
March 3rd, 2020
For a previous production

Pretty Woman won't be the last cynical miscalculation to hit the West End, but if it brings [Bob Harms] to a broader public, well, no harm done there.
