Performances will begin at Broadway’s Nederlander Theatre July 20 prior to an official opening August 16. The cast includes Samantha Barks, Steve Kazee, Eric Anderson, Jason Danieley, Kingsley Leggs, and Orfeh. Jerry Mitchell will direct and choreograph the musical, which features a book by J.F. Lawton and the late Garry Marshall (who both worked on the movie) and a score by Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance.

Like the movie, the show follows Vivian—a Hollywood Boulevard prostitute with dreams of a better life—and Edward, a prominent businessman. What begins as a transaction blossoms into a true romance and journey of self-discovery.
