Andy Karl and Samantha Barks Sing Two New Bryan Adams Songs From Pretty Woman

Barks and Karl open in the new Broadway musical tonight.

Pretty Woman: The Musical opens tonight, August 16, at Broadway's Nederlander Theatre.

To celebrate, we've got a first listen to two new songs from the show, written by Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance.

Here is star Samantha Barks singing "I Can't Go Back":

And here is Barks, Andy Karl, Allison Blackwell, and the company performing "You and I":

Based on the popular 1990 movie starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere, Pretty Woman: The Musical tells the story of how prostitute Vivian (Samantha Barks) and vulture capitalist Edward (Andy Karl) meet and fall in love. With a book by original screenwriter J.F. Lawton and film director Garry Marshall, Pretty Woman features an all-new score by Jim Vallance and Bryan Adams (the team behind chart-topping hits like "Summer of '69" and "Heaven"). Tony Award winner Jerry Mitchell (Kinky Boots) directs and choreographs.
