Exclusive Photos: Go Backstage at Broadway's  Pretty Woma...

Photo by Jenny Anderson

Photographer Jenny Anderson (who shot our Classic New York Films and our Broadway Replacement Stars series) brings BroadwayBox backstage for an exclusive series capturing Broadway companies getting ready to take the stage. Jenny recently made her way to Rodeo Drive by way of Broadway's Nederlander Theatre to photograph the cast of the hit musical adaptation of Pretty Woman pre-show.

What a welcome from Tommy Bracco, the former Newsie who audiences fall in love with as the Beverly Wilshire Hotel's bell hop, Giulio.

First stop is the dressing room of Pretty Woman’s suave AF leading man, three-time Tony nominee Andy Karl. He plays Edward Lewis, the lonely millionaire who finds love with Vivian.

Truly obsessed with this photo. It should be Andy Karl's album cover or hung poster-sized in bedrooms and dorm rooms across the world.

The Tony nominee brings her one-of-a-kind, goosebumps-inducing voice to the role of Vivian’s sister in the life, Kit De Luca.

Eric begins the show as the street person “Happy Man” before transitioning to his role as the kind Beverly Wilshire hotel manager, Mr. Thompson. This is his Happy Man look from designer Gregg Barnes.

Jason does look awfully swell while playing such a swine.
