Legally Blonde: The Musical is a stage show based on the novel, as well as the movies of the same name famously starring the delightful Reese Witherspoon. While Witherspoon does not join the cast in the stage version, this marvellous piece of theatre once held the talents of Sheridan Smith of Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps fame, as well as Jill Halfpenny of Coronation Street notoriety. Currently, however, the show is lead by the talented Susan McFadden as the primary character of Elle Woods, and remarkable Simon Thomas as the focus of her affections, Warner Huntington III.
As far as the plot and setting, it generally follows that of the first Legally Blonde movie, with the addition of addicting musical numbers and tremendously high energies. McFadden’s character, Elle Woods, seeks to reunite with her boyfriend by choosing to attend Harvard Law School with him in order to show him that she too can be a smart, serious girl. While she encounters some difficulties adjusting to the campus, she conducts herself with poise, style, and a lot of pink. In the end, if one enjoyed the humour, fun and hilarious moments in the Legally Blonde movies, then the stage adaptation would be a fine choice to see as well.
