Featured Reviews For Pretty Woman


Pretty Woman: The Musical brings the hit film to Broadway: EW review - Entertainment Weekly
Pretty Woman doesn't quite work as a musical. Or, at least, not this musical. There are a couple of numbers that work well enough (Barks' heartfelt "This is My Life," for example). But overall, the songs by Bryan Adams (yes, that Bryan Adams) and Jim Vallance feel uninspired, a little cheesy (again, that Bryan Adams), and lifeless - try as they might to rev them up with Bon Jovi-esque guitar power chords. The lyrics can be downright lazy. For the record, any song that contains the line "For the first time I can see..." should be banned from Broadway from this moment into perpetuity.

Broadway’s ‘Pretty Woman’ Musical: All Dressed Up With No Place To Go – Review - Deadline
We're instructed time and again that the down-on-her-luck Vivian just won't give up on her true dreams, though if Pretty Woman bothers to explain dreams of what exactly, I missed it. We know she doesn't want a Prince Charming to rescue her - that much is stated and re-stated - but in the end, well, let's just say No fairy tale was harmed in the making of this musical.
