Legally Blonde The Musical, adapted from the 2001 hit film, is a rosy-hued tale about a sorority sister turned Harvard Law student. Filled with lively songs, breathtaking choreography, and copious amounts of pink, the sidesplitting saga of Elle Woods leaves audiences joyous and up to 24% blonder. Seating (subject to availability) will be in the orchestra section or first-level mezzanine rows A-F ($63.25 each), or in the mid- and back-level mezzanine ($53.25 each). Join Broadway Grand Rapids for its 23rd music-making season as the company celebrates its new partnership with MSU's Wharton Center for the Performing Arts.
- Among feelgood musicals, Legally Blonde is right up there with Mamma Mia! and Hairspray. – Charles Spencer, Telegraph
- Becky Gulsvig has a lot of firepower as Elle, and costume designers clearly had a blast creating the dozens of pink ensembles she wears. Also likable is Natalie Joy Johnson as Elle's hairdresser and confidante Paulette, who plays a key role in three of the show's best songs, and has some of the show's best wise-cracks. – Grant Butler, The Oregonian
