We watched the show. Loved Kit, Funny man was brilliant, the young pregnant girl was superb. We enjoyed Danny Mac, but unfortunately they used one of the understudies for the female lead, Olivia Brookes. It was a shame, as her acting was fairly wooden, and her singing was more screeching. I guess she was nervous, but we paid a lot for our tickets, and they didn’t even announce that it was an understudy. It was a disappointing Thursday afternoon, 28th October.

OVERALL A GOOD ADAPTION OF THE FILM
But Vivian's dresses didn't have the 'Wow' factor and 3 very 'Key' phrases were missing/ changed. 1- Leaving the Opera comment about Peeing her pants/Pirates of Penzance. 2-It was Edward who asked everyone to leave the meeting not Morse! 3-Re the black eye (which was actually left out - said she hadn't been hurt!) hence the missed phrase about being taught how to hit a girl. Other than this it was a very enjoyable night!

My daughter and I love musicals and have seen most of them (she lives in London) and were very excited when we got tickets to see Pretty Woman on Sat 29th Feb. The excitement soon changed as this production was certainly not up to scratch - couldn't warm to the leading lady, wrong choice in all respects. I would comment on the fact that the dress she wore to the polo match was BLUE and not BROWN as in the film and also why put her in such long white gloves with her red opera dress. They were so long they were tucked in under her sleeves which made it look as though she was wearing bandages on each arm!!! Dreadful - big mistake!!Can't understand why audiences are allowed to take in drinks. The middle aged couple next to us had a bottle of wine and after drinking it all in the first half, fell asleep after the interval and never woke up until the end. Maybe the performance sent them to sleep - but what a waste of money! Best performance was by the Hotel Manager who played many parts.

PRETTY WOMAN, SAVOY THEATRE, LONDON
My daughter and I were super excited to watch Pretty Woman The Musical. It had been put back 3 times due to the pandemic so to go to the theatre again was so exciting! However, we were left a little "underwhelmed". Not sure if it was nerves as the show only opened the day before, but some of the performances were not great. Stand-out performances were by Danny Mac as Edward and Bob Harms as Mr Thompson. Vivian was a bit vanilla (not great casting) and some of the ensemble looked like they didn't want to be there! If you didn't know the story, you would wonder why it is called Pretty Woman. It looked and felt a bit amateur-ish; not what you'd expect at £150 a ticket. Such a shame as we were so looking forward to it!

This is my favourite film of all time so was looking forward to the musical but was totally underwhelmed by it, Danny mac was good but I think they chose the wrong actress to play Vivian coupled with the fact that there was no music from the original film it was quite a let down.

IF YOU LOVE THE MOVIE YOU WON’T LOVE THIS
Really disappointed, as a super lover of the film disappointed with this. As well as the story of the film you love the songs but the show doesn’t have those, so it’s just a quick version of the movie missing some iconic moments. Unfortunately didn’t feel the leading lady did any justice to Vivian and missed this she was portrayed in the film. The gentleman who played the hotel manager was good and played the part well, disappointed Edward was replaced with understudy had come to see Danny Mac. I would recommended this to a pretty women film lover it’s just not the same. Some other comments mention the outfits and I would agree felt they wardrobe budget was impacted by covid or something!

We went to see the pretty woman with high expectation, but to our surprise its the opposite. I wouldnt say it just a waste of money bec watching musical is an experience of a lifetime but sad to say it is. It is nothing like the movie, its far from the movie, all of the songs that are in the movie wasnt in the musical except for the pretty woman song itself that was played in the last part of the show but not expectaculous. Very very disappointed. I thought it was going to be better than it was.
