Pretty Woman to Launch Digital Lottery

Pretty Woman: The Musical, which recently opened at Broadway’s Nederlander Theatre, breaking a long-held box office record at the theatre, has announced that it will launch a digital lottery. Starting Tuesday, September 11, 2018, a limited number of $42 tickets will be available.

The lottery will be open from 9am – 2pm for evening performances. For matinee performances, the digital lottery will open at 9pm the evening prior and close at 9am on the day of the performance. Winners will be notified by email shortly after each drawing and have 60 minutes to claim and pay for tickets online. Tickets can be picked up 30 minutes prior to show time at the Nederlander Theatre (208 West 41st Street). Photo ID is required for pickup, seat locations and number of tickets awarded by the lottery are subject to availability. There is a maximum of 2 tickets per entry.

Featuring a score by Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance, and a book by Garry Marshall and J.F. Lawton, Pretty Woman is adapted for the Broadway stage from the popular 1990 film starring Richard Gere and Julia Roberts. Two-time Tony-winner Jerry Mitchell directs and choreographs the show which stars Andy Karl (Groundhog Day, Rocky) and Samantha Barks (Film of Les Miserables).

Tony Award nominee Orfeh, Eric Anderson, Jason Danieley and Ezra Knight round-out the leading cast with a 19-member ensemble that includes Allison Blackwell, Tommy Bracco, Brian Calì, Robby Clater, Jessica Crouch, Nico DeJesus, 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 Foster, and Darius Wright.

“Based on one of the most beloved romantic comedies of all time, this modern spin on Cinderella is the story of Vivian, a spirited diamond in the rough who dreams of a better life.  A star-crossed meeting with Edward, a shrewd corporate raider from New York who is lost in Hollywood, turns a simple business deal into a week of romance and a journey of self-discovery for both Vivian and Edward. This contemporary theatrical take on the iconic love story will sweep a new generation off their feet and make them believe in the power of “Happily Ever After.”

The musical, which received its world premiere at Chicago’s Oriental Theatre this last March, features scenic design by David Rockwell, costume design by Gregg Barnes, lighting design by Kenneth Posner and Philip S. Rosenberg. Sound design is provided by John Shivers, hair design by Josh Marquette, and music supervision, arrangements, and orchestrations by Will Van Dyke.
