PRETTY WOMAN

What happened to the theme song???? Ruined it for me....just threw it in at the end while everyone was leaving and it was awful. Loved the opera singers!! Vivian's role was too over the top...not at all like the movie. It was entertaining but was disappointed.

PRETTY WOMAN THE MUSICAL

First of all I think trying to create a musical based on such an iconic and ridiculously well-loved movie ESPECIALLY one starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere was going to be an enormous feat. And set up to fail on a certain level through no fault of the actors'. With that being said here's my review. The actors and actresses voices were wonderful. Very talented in that respect. The acting itself was both good and mediocre at different times. I agree with another reviewer that it took me a bit to warm up to Edward but I found myself really liking him and his unconventional rasy voice. Vivian on the other hand was a character I really couldn't connect with. Her lines seems forced and somewhat unnatural. Which was really tough for me as she is my FAVORITE character in the movie. Although certainly musically talented, she just didn't deliver a believable performance in most scenes. Although, I am sure there is an element of bias in my review. I would not want to be silently compared to Julia Roberts. A I was also disappointed that a couple of iconic scenes in the movie were replaced with more socially accepted concepts. I certainly agree with the reasons behind the changes but disappointed nonetheless to see the original scenes missing or changed. The musical additions and dance numbers were fine. I certainly wasn't expecting the musical to be exactly like the movie itsel; I attend these shows because of my love for the theater. Overall, enjoyable but that was also because I was enjoying the experience with my family. I applaud the actors for taking this project on and my hope is the characters grow into their roles more so with time.

WAS THIS REALLY NECESSARY?

I didn't have high hopes for this in the first place. Maybe I don't understand the appeal of reimagining a 90's romcom into a 2 hour musical. But good grief, I needed some wine and crackers to go along with the sheer CHEESINESS of this thing. The acting was so overblown and over the top, it felt like a play for children. Olivia Valli's portrayal was so obnoxious and over the top, it was completely unbelievable that she had charm enough to win the affections of anyone, let alone a billionaire. The movie worked because even though the 2 main characters were from opposites sides of the tracks, there was a something endearing about both of them that allowed them to fall for each other. I never would have imagined that these rolls required any kind of gravitas to pull off, but apparently they do because the absence of it is on full display on this production. The 2 stars are for Amma Osei's voice. Amazing.

PRETTY BORING

Pretty Woman is my all time favorite movie. I just could not get into the show, the actress who played Vivian was too over the top. My husband and I left at intermission. It was also distracting having the ushers walking up and down the aisles during the show with paddles saying wear your mask.

NOT WORTH IT

The set was poor. High school production has better set. Vivian was a little over the top. Her voice was mediocre. Country song?! Really? Kit had a phenomenal voice. Opera was awe-inspiring. Just wasn’t worth the time and money spent. Disappointing.

PRETTY BAD

The supporting cast was great, the set was great but I just could not get over Vivian's over the top and plain out bad acting. It was hard to enjoy the show when the main character was obnoxious and not at all charming. The Kit character was great and so were so many other roles. The music was meh not horrible but nothing that move me.
