GARRY MARSHALL (Book) producer, director and writer of film, television and theater, made audiences laugh for five decades. Pretty Woman was the most successful of the 18 films he directed. It was his passion to make it a Broadway musical because he loved live theater. He was thrilled to work with J.F. Lawton again on this title. Before Garry passed away in 2016 he knew the wonderful creative team in place would make Pretty Woman the Musical a joyous reality. He dedicates this show to Barbara Sue Wells, his wife of 53 years.
