Based on the movie starring Reese Witherspoon, Legally Blonde weaves the bubbly tale of Elle Woods, a sorority president who follows her ex-boyfriend to Harvard Law to rekindle their romance. The award-winning musical follows Elle's defeats and triumphs as she struggles to succeed at law, discover self-respect outside a relationship, and finally find new love. Clever, fast-paced lyrics mix with upbeat tunes in songs such as "Omigod You Guys" and "Gay or European," supported by rug-cutting numbers that enliven the show and disappoint kids who thought dance was a rebellion against their lawyer parents.
