IT...WAS...TEDIOUS...

PRETTY WOMAN

Terrible. Boring production. Vivianes role was so childish. The music was screeching and none that you would remember. What a disaster to be shown at the Fox.

NEVER WALKED OUT BEFORE…

Pretty Woman was always a problematic story. In the movie, the charisma of Julia Roberts and Richard Gere let us suspend belief. This production, doubled down on everything problematic about the story and lacked any charisma. The songs made me weep— for Bryan Adams fall. Every single song is terrible. The acting was exaggerated for comedy. The music was painfully sophomoric because the composers obviously did not have any respect for their audience. I think this was made for tourists who were trapped because every other good production was sold out. To be truthful, I walked out at intermission. I would have walked out much earlier (at the first “song”) if I hadn’t been trapped. I felt badly for the performers who must have gagged at the material and were so desperate for work in covid times. There were indeed some laughs from the audience…but I felt the producers used some slap stick comedy to distract from the horror show. We bought these tickets as part of a Broadway package and we were happy to give it a try. But that this musical was in the same lineup as Hamilton, Hadestown, Dear Evan Hansen and Oklahoma was the only way this production could fill seats. It is possible that the second half of the musical made Sondheim’s heart sing, but I doubt it. And I am not a snobby musical snob. I’m more than happy to watch movie based musicals - I have found Disney productions, School of Rock, Matilda, Moulin Rouge fun. I write this not to stop you from attending. I am begging corporate producers to stop making obvious junk.

MISSED OPPORTUNITY START TO FINISH

You brace yourself whenever they start singing because the play comes to a screeching halt every time. Seriously, it feels like there are only two songs in this musical: ensemble and ballad. So many lost opportunities for fun duets between Vivian and Edward to show their push pull, or musics numbers dedicated to important scenes instead of making them little in between. Kit outshines Vivian easily. All the teeth are taken out of Vivian. The creepy lawyer is more charming than Edward. Vivian had more chemistry pantomiming a conversation with Morse than singing a duet with Edward.

1.0 star rating Ari from Minneapolis, Minnesota

HORRIBLE

Left at intermission…Kit’s voice was great- only redeeming thing about this show.

1.0 star rating Angie Rice from Minneapolis, Minnesota

HORRIBLE

Worst musical ever. Vivienne was pitchy, and Edward’s voice was weak and mealy. If I could give this negative stars I would. Choreography was simplistic. At one point I laughed out loud because I was so embarrassed for the cast. My high-school daughters could perform better than this.
