After breaking advance box office records at London’s Piccadilly Theatre when it opened in February 2020, Pretty Woman: The Musical will returns to the West End this summer in its new home, the Savoy Theatre, with performances from 8 July 2021.
The show will star Aimie Atkinson as Vivian Ward and Danny Mac as Edward Lewis. They are joined by Rachael Wooding as Kit De Luca, Bob Harms as Happy Man/Mr Thompson, Neil McDermott as Philip Stuckey and Mark Holden as James Morse.
On behalf of all the producers, Paula Wagner said: “Our London production of Pretty Woman: The Musical had just opened when the world changed and our cherished theatres were forced to close due to the pandemic. When we opened in the West End a year ago we had broken advance box-office records at the Piccadilly and were playing to sold out houses.
“With so many ticket holders eager to see this show about love and resilience, we knew we would bring back Pretty Woman when the time was safe and right. With the move to our new home, the Savoy Theatre, we are able to return to share our joy with many more people. We look forward to everyone being together soon and giving our audiences the chance to come and enjoy the ultimate fun night out we all deserve right now.”
