How ‘Pretty Woman: The Musical’ Resonates in the #MeToo Era
The 1990 rom-com classic “Pretty Woman” has been turned into a Broadway musical. But how does the story, which centers on a sex worker and the rich businessman who falls for her, fare in the era of #MeToo? The musical's director, Jerry Mitchell, said the stage production has an underlying message of empowerment. “If you are in a less than fortunate place, if you don't lose hope if you don't lose a sense of who you are and your dreams, there's a chance to get out,” he told Inside Edition at the premiere.
