Pink fanatic, Elle Woods, first came to us in 2001. Reese Witherspoon was perfect for Legally Blonde's ditzy law student (I'm not implying anything, I swear), and the film was a great success. So what do you do when something is successful? Milk it for all it's worth. And so started Legally Blonde: The Musical.
Various productions have been going on since 2007, but after three years at the West End, this seven award winning romantic comedy has taken to the road. Since 2011, Legally Blonde: The Musical has been touring the UK; now reaching its climax, its last venue for this year is The New Wimbledon Theatre between the 25th September and 6th October.
When pink princess, Elle Woods (Faye Brookes) is dumped by her boyfriend, Warner (Gareth Gates) for being too ditzy, she decides to join him at Harvard Law school to prove she's not just a dumb blonde.
Directed by Jerry Mitchell, who is well known for his choreography in The Rocky Horror Show and Hair Spray, could tell this Legally Blonde was made for the stage. The film was packed with song and dance routines, so translates to musical theatre perfectly. With twenty musical numbers, including my favourite, 'Bend and Snap', Legally Blonde will uplift your spirits.
Tickets can be bought here. There are both evening and matinee performances, with general tickets costing between £15-£35, and premium seats between £35-£42.
