POSSIBLY BEST MUSICAL EVER!

We saw this on 31st July after having our original tickets cancelled due to the pandemic. I honestly can't think of a musical I have enjoyed more. It was funny and heart warming from the very start. I have only just seen the reviews and can't believe so many people have slated this show, I can only assume that these are reviews from pre-pandemic and maybe something has now changed. The actors, costumes, sets and music were all superb (not sure why people are upset that one dress was a different colour than on the film!) Some people seem not to have realised that the original Pretty Woman was a film not a musical therefore the songs were written for the show. All in all I think it was a fabulous show, and I think everyone else in the theatre did too judging by the standing ovation and raucous applause. My recommendation is go see it, you won't regret it.

CAPTURES THE ESSENCE OF THE CLASSIC MOVIE

Having read some of the one-star reviews, I can’t help but wonder of the ‘woke’ brigade has gotten their claws into this show for some reason. Personally, I thought it was fabulous, and very true to the spirit and characters of the Julia Roberts/Richard Gere film. I was particularly impressed with the chemistry between Danny Mac and Aimee Atkinson, who were terrific. In terms of staging, dance choreography, and overall production value, this show very much delivers on the expectation of a ‘big’ musical experience, artfully (and heartfully) told. The only slight disappointment for me was that the score did not have quite as many memorable songs. I would very cheerfully watch this again.

WHAT A NIGHT!

If you go into this expecting a remake of the film as a jukebox musical, you will be disappointed at best and won’t appreciate what an actual gem this musical is. Knowing it was an original soundtrack made going in to this exciting as I didn’t know any of the songs and they weren’t overplayed. Translating the story for this into a W.E. Show was hard, but it does ask you to use your imagination a little, which is fine by me! The most memorable bit for me was Mr. Thompson's tango and the opera scene. All the cast are outstanding and the sets are imaginative without being OTT. You can definitely tell the music was written by Bryan Adams, but it suits the period of the show. Bob Harms is the stand out cast member for me, and his Happy Man really does want you to live your dreams! Amy and Danny have amazing chemistry and Rachel Wooding’s voice is phenomenal! Again, if you want nostalgia, this musical isn’t for you. If you want a fresh take, GO SEE IT!
