The musical based on the film "Pretty Woman" opens for the first time in Spain this September, at the Teatro Apolo in Barcelona, with Cristina Llorente in the role of Vivian Ward (Julia Roberts in the film) and Roger Berruezo as Edward Lewis, who was brought to life in the cinema by Richard Gere.
At a press conference at the Hotel El Palace Bracelona, the director of the musical, Caroline Brouwer, stated that the musical Pretty Woman invites viewers to dream: "It offers what we all need to have, to search within ourselves to achieve our dreams".
Synopsis: Once upon a time, in the land where dreams are possible, a young woman from Hollywood Boulevard who dreams of a better life, Vivian, and a handsome and rich businessman, Edward, belong to opposite worlds. Destiny crosses their lives and nothing can be the same. They will not only find love, but they will also find themselves.
The production has assured that it is a version faithful to the film, but "with a unique adaptation to the theater, where scenes of the musical work take place".
The cast, made up of Llorente (Vivian Ward), Berruezo (Edward Lewis) and Yuste (Happyman) – the latter a character incorporated to lead the musical – have joined Brouwer's words and highlighted, among others, that the musical it is made so that "each one identifies what their dream is and fight for it, since without dreams our lives have no meaning", added Yuste.
