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.

I was date of very close friend whose husband died unexpectedly a few weeks ago, so the ticket didn’t cost me anything but time. So wished I could have left at intermission. By far the worst play I have ever seen, and I’ve been a frequent theater goer for 50 years. Spare yourself, even if you paid for the tickets.

This is probably the worst play I’ve ever seen. I am a big fan of Pretty Woman and the leads couldn’t be more inadequate. The leads for Vivian & Edward didn’t seem to have enough talent, can’t dance, sing or act, excruciatingly awful. There was zero chemistry between the two lead actors. The song selection fell short in engaging the crowd. This play would allow for a lot of witty jokes which it didn’t get. The play being in LA and the plot taking place in Hollywood should have given the opportunity for a stellar show. I was very disappointed with the lack of prop decor, could have done so much better! Lastly, everyone in the supporting cast was absolutely amazing! Very talented, the Opera singer was out of this world phenomenal. The theme song should be planned at least 3 times throughout the play, we all love the song! and it would have set the mood from beginning to end. For theater you need to command a presence when you hit the stage, the leads fell incredibly short in doing so.

I’VE NEVER WALKED OUT OF A SHOW…
….until now. Left at intermission when I just knew I couldn’t make it through a second act. The songs, lyrics, lines, staging, and performances were abysmal. No chemistry between the leads, no motivations for movement, high school quality choreography and flat singing. I was flabbergasted. Thank goodness for the bellhop who sprinkled a little joy onstage, but wow. I just……can’t.

WORSE THAN A COMMUNITY THEATER PRODUCTION
Cast and sets were sub-par, not worthy of being in the DCPA. Ultimately the book (script and lyrics) are poorly written and executed with a repetitiveness that borders on boring. This production is not consistent with other national touring companies. A limited orchestra (5 pieces and synthesizer) boosted by a volume that was ear piercing, left the orchestration, already deficient, charmless.

We were really looking forward to seeing this, but as massively talented as the actors were, the dancing was cheesy and the main character was overacted. We suspect this overacting was either written into the adaptation or a huge mistake by the director. Either way, we left at intermission, not being able to stomach it anymore, and not wanting to waste the rest of our evening.

SUITE LIFE OF PRETTY WOMAN ON DECK
We were at the opening night performance in Atlanta (9/13).
It very much felt like Pretty Woman...as put on by the people who do Disney Channel television.
Once we figured out that the female lead (Vivian) was basically channeling Miley Cyrus/Hannah Montana, it became more tolerable. It was almost a game to try and figure out what other stars everyone was playing. Ashley Tisdale was Kit. Rondell Sheridan was Happy Man/Mr. Thompson. Good times making an unbearably bad musical kinda fun.
Not enough fun however as we left at intermission.
We've been to countless performances at the Fox over the last decade. This is first one we walked out on.
