Aimie Atkinson and Danny Mac will lead the cast of Pretty Woman: The Musical in the West End, producers have confirmed.
Atkinson, who starred as Katherine Howard in the London production of Six the Musical, will play Vivian, with Mac performing the role of Edward.
Director and choreographer Jerry Mitchell said: “When I first saw Aimie I knew I wanted to work with her. Her star quality, attack and voice in Six leapt off the stage.
“I have wanted to work with the very talented Danny Mac for ages. His voice is perfectly suited for Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance’s romantic score.
“Together, Aimie and Danny will make the West End production of Pretty Woman: The Musical sizzle, and with them we’ll all be falling in love again with Garry Marshall and JF Lawton’s romantic story,” he added.
The show will begin performances at London’s Piccadilly Theatre from February 13, 2020, and is scheduled for a 46-week run.
It previously ran on Broadway, where it ran for a year until August 2019 and starred Samantha Barks and Andy Karl.
The musical has design by David Rockwell, lighting design by Kenneth Posner and Philip S Rosenberg, sound design by John Shivers and hair design by Josh Marquette.
The music supervision, arrangements and orchestrations are by Will Van Dyke.
It is produced by Ambassador Theatre Group Productions, Paula Wagner, Nice Productions and LPO.
