Critic reviews

Danny Mac and Aimie Atkinson star in the schmaltzy and shallow Hollywood tale, told with a few winning songs

The Guardian

Good performances can’t save this shallow, outdated vision of sex work

The Independent

Cynical and deeply unimaginative musical re-tread of the hit 1990 romcom

The Stage

This aggressively stupid musical version of the Julia Roberts smash justifies the terrible Broadway reviews

Time Out

If Pretty Woman – The Musical had any conscience it would adapt itself to the actors performing it and to the era in which it has been launched

WhatsOnStage

No amount of feminist T-shirts can save this regressive, over-priced spin-off

The Telegraph

I’ve never seen a show that’s whiter, more American or more heterosexual than Pretty Woman the Musical

Exeunt

It’s not so much that Pretty Woman: The Musical isn’t much good, which it isn’t. More to the point is that this West End replica of the recent Broadway musical of the 1990 film feels utterly superfluous

Arts Desk

There may be a bit of wish-fulfillment to all of this - the score and book are both written by all-male teams, and the show its also written and directed by a man - but it also has a happy, eventually feel-good vibe to it

London Theatre

This show is a sure-fire hit

Broadway World

Guarantees to be a crowd pleaser

London Box Office

Big Fun. Huge

West End Wilma

But you know what? I really enjoyed it
