Telsey + Co. is casting the upcoming developmental lab for the highly anticipated stage adaptation of “Pretty Woman,” and will hold an Equity Chorus Call in New York City.

The musical, which will feature direction and choreography by Tony Award winner Jerry Mitchell (“Kinky Boots”), seeks female performers ages 20–40s to fill out its ensemble. The team is casting actors of all ethnicities, who are able to single versatile styles.

The call will be held at 10 a.m. on June 15 at Ripley-Grier Studios (520 8th Ave.). Auditioners should have 16 bars prepared of a pop/rock song which demonstrates range—no musical theater selections. Sheet music of your chosen song should be provided for the accompanist, as well as a copy of your photo-résumé, stapled together.

The lab itself will run Sept. 11–Oct. 6. Pay will be $1,000/week. The fully-staged musical is aiming for the 2018–19 season to bow on Broadway.

In addition to Mitchell, the creative team includes Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance, who have penned the score. J.F. Lawton, who wrote the film's screenplay, and the late Garry Marshall, who directed the film, collaborated for the book. Paula Wagner is the primary producer.
