The London return of Pretty Woman: The Musical, which opened in February 2020 at the Piccadilly Theatre, returns to the West End July 8 at a new home, the Savoy Theatre. The production is currently scheduled to play to socially distanced audiences until July 20, when it aims to play at full capacity.
The show stars Six Olivier nominee Aimie Atkinson as Vivian Ward and White Christmas star Danny Mac as Edward Lewis, with Rachael Wooding as Kit De Luca, Bob Harms as Happy Man/Mr. Thompson, Neil McDermott as Philip Stuckey, and Mark Holden as James Morse.

The move to the Savoy follows the earlier announcement that the West End revival of Sunday in the Park With George—a U.K. transfer of the Jake Gyllenhaal and Annaleigh Ashford-led staging—will not play that venue as originally intended.
The production also has scenic design by David Rockwell, costumes by Tom Rogers from the original Broadway designs by Gregg Barnes, lighting design by Kenneth Posner and Philip S. Rosenberg, sound design by John Shivers, hair design by Josh Marquette, and music supervision, arrangements, and orchestrations by Will Van Dyke. 101 Productions, Ltd. is the global general management consultant.
The musical made its world premiere at Chicago’s Oriental Theatre (now the James M. Nederlander Theatre) in March 2018 before transferring to Broadway's Nederlander Theatre. The German production opened in Hamburg at the Stage Theater an der Elbe in September 2019.
