Why See Legally Blonde the Musical?
Brains, Beauty and a Whole Lot Of Musical Fun
Tony-nominated and Olivier Award-winning Broadway and West End smash Legally Blonde The Musical is an effervescent production about an unlikely underdog in the form of sorority girl Elle Woods. Brimming with catchy song and dance numbers, the power of positivity in the face of adversity and wholesome humour, it is based on Amanda Brown's best-selling novel and subsequent cult hit film starring Oscar-winning Hollywood heavyweight Reese Witherspoon.
With music and lyrics by husband and wife composing duo Laurence O'Keefe and Nell Benjamin (Heathers: The Musical) and a book by screenwriter Heather Hach (Freaky Friday), the fabulously fun tale of the buoyant blonde with brains as well as beauty comes to Philadelphia's Walnut Street Theater as part of its exciting new 2018/19 season.
What Is Legally Blonde The Musical About?
When SoCal sorority princess Elle Woods is dumped by her elite beau Warner because he does not deem her serious enough to marry, the pink-loving socialite enrols at his chosen university Harvard to study law in an attempt to win him back. Its clear that the fun-loving blonde is very different from the east coast students she calls classmates, but even their tittering and vitriol is not enough to derail her. On her quest for acceptance from others, she finds she has the smarts and courage of conviction to accept herself.
