Pretty Woman: The Musical will feature sets by David Rockwell, costumes by Gregg Barnes, lighting 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.
Pretty Woman: The Musical will open on Broadway in the fall of 2018 at a Nederlander Theatre to be announced.
