ABOUT THE SHOW

Pretty Woman is a Based on the 1990 film of the same name. Pretty Woman is a modern retelling of the Cinderella story. Vivian, a Hollywood prostitute is picked up on the street by Edward Lewis, a tough but lonely business mogul. Employed as his companion, Vivian is immersed into the elite Beverly Hill society, but she soon realizes that she is a fish out of water. She wants to make something of her life, but she must be true to herself along the way. During a week of romance, both Vivian and Edward embark on a journey of self-discovery and discover true love along the way. Edward is softened and transformed by Vivian’s joy of life and he comes to realize that he must change his priorities if he wants to hold on to what matters most. He rediscovers his moral compass and drops his brutal business methods, much to his money-grabbing lawyer’s chagrin. Edward and Vivian’s love transcends social divides and this independent Cinderella gets her Prince.  Music and lyrics by Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance, and a book by Garry Marshall and J. F. Lawton
