It's been nearly three decades since "Pretty Woman "first hit the big screen, but the story still remains in people's hearts.

Now fans can watch the beloved movie again — but this time in musical form with "Pretty Woman: The Musical," which is set to premiere on Friday on New York City. The romance centers around a wealthy businessman who hires an escort for the weekend then follows the unlikely pair's love story.

Andy Karl, a three-time Tony nominee, will play the role of businessman Edward Lewis. His co-star, Samantha Barks, will play the role of Julia Roberts' Golden Globe-winning performance as Vivian.

Karl's wife, Orfeh, a Tony-nominated actress who starred in "Legally Blond: The Musical," is also part of the cast as Kit.

In addition to the star-studded cast, singer-songwriter Bryan Adams also crafted original music for the musical adaption of the 1990 film.

The highly anticipated musical comes on the heels of the Chicago performance that began this spring. The Broadway previews are slated for Friday ahead of the August 16 opening at the Nederlander Theatre. Visit here for more information and to learn about purchasing tickets.
