The musical will play a tryout run at a theatre in Chicago in spring 2018, with a fall 2018 opening planned on Broadway at one of the theatres owned by the theatre company -- Nederlander Organization.

"Pretty Woman" will have a score by Adams, who has crooned a string of hits like "Summer of '69" and "I do it for you".

Barks will make her Broadway debut in "Pretty Woman," with Kazee returning to Broadway for the first time since "Once," the 2012 musical that won him a Tony for lead actor in a musical.
