"It is really wonderful that UK audiences will get to experience Pretty Woman: The Musical at the Piccadilly Theatre next year. Bryan and Jim's original score for the show brings an electric new dimension to Garry Marshall and J.F. Lawton's beloved film.

They really captured the essence of Pretty Woman, and along with Jerry's skilful direction and choreography, this classic love story really has become a great night out at the theatre. Next year also marks 30 years since the release of the film, and I can't think of a better place than the Piccadilly Theatre to celebrate!"
