Pretty Woman: The Musical will open in London’s West End in 2020.

The stage adaption of the iconic film will transfer from Broadway next year.

A theatre, casting and exact opening beyond ‘Winter 2020’ has not yet been announced.

Pretty Woman tells the story of the unlikely relationship between wealthy businessman Edward Lewis who hires down-on-her-luck Hollywood prostitute Vivian Ward as an escort while on a business trip to LA.

The musical adaption features music and lyrics by Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance with a book from Garry Marshall and JF Lawton, who wrote the original film screenplay.

Direction and choreography comes from Jerry Mitchell (Kinky Boots, Legally Blonde) while the current Broadway cast features British actress Samantha Barks as Vivian Ward together with Andy Karl as Edward Lewis.
