Critic reviews

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

Exeunt

Big Fun. Huge

· West End Wilma

Everything is tighter, more relaxed and polished

· London Box Office

Magnetic Aimie Atkinson brings power and depth to musical rom-com revival

· Evening Standard

But you know what? I really enjoyed it

· Musical Theatre Review

This show is a sure-fire hit

· Broadway World

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

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

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

· The Telegraph

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

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

· The Stage

Good performances can’t save this shallow, outdated vision of sex work

· The Independent

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

· The Guardian

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

· Time Out
