Bryan Adams has penned the songs for Pretty Woman: The Musical, based on the 1990 Julia Roberts/Richard Gere romantic comedy, set to open on Broadway next year.
Pretty Woman: The Musical will star Samantha Barks in Roberts’ role of Vivian, a hooker with a heart of gold, and Steve Kazee in Gere’s role of Edward, the wealthy corporate raider who falls for her. The musical’s book — that’s the script and story — is by the late Garry Marshall, who directed the movie, and J.F. Lawton, who wrote the screenplay.
Adams and his longtime songwriting partner, Jim Vallance, wrote the original music and lyrics for the production, which will begin performances March 13, 2018, at Chicago’s Oriental Theater before moving to Broadway in the fall.
So far there are no details on the songs to be featured, but we wouldn’t be surprised if there are numbers titled “Big Mistake, Huge!” “I Want the Fairytale” and “I Don’t Kiss on the Mouth.”
