Pretty Woman: The Musical, which begins previews on Broadway July 20, will release an original Broadway cast recording. Producer Paula Wagner is teaming up with Atlantic Records to release the album, which will be produced by the musical's composers, Grammy winner Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance.
The Pretty Woman cast recording will be available for pre-order beginning August 9.
Following a world premiere in Chicago earlier this year, Pretty Woman: The Musical arrives on Broadway at the Nederlander Theatre. Directed and choreographed by Jerry Mitchell, the contemporary stage adaptation of the popular romantic comedy from the ’90s stars Samantha Barks as Vivian alongside Andy Karl as Edward.
Pretty Woman: The Musical will officially open August 16. Based on the movie about a star-crossed meeting between a prostitute and a disillusioned businessman, the stage musical features a book co-written by the film’s director, the late Garry Marshall, and screenwriter J.F. Lawton, and music by Adams and Vallance.
“It’s fantastic to be working with Atlantic Records on the original Broadway cast recording,” said Adams in a statement. “I’m a huge fan of the label and its incredible legacy, and what they’ve been doing in the Broadway arena over the past few years has been extraordinary.”
"It's no small thing putting 30 people in a studio and recording an entire cast album while performing eight shows a week!” added Vallance. “Our Atlantic Records team is incredibly experienced and knowledgeable, and they’ve been a dream to work with throughout the whole process.”
The company also features Allison Blackwell, Tommy Bracco, Brian Calì, Robby Clater, Jessica Crouch, Anna Eilinsfeld, Matt Farcher, Lauren Lim Jackson, Renée Marino, Ellyn Marie Marsh, Jillian Mueller, Jake Odmark, Jennifer Sanchez, Matthew Stocke, Alex Michael Stoll, Alan Wiggins, Jesse Wildman, and Darius Wright.
