Need some encouragement to reach your dreams? Looking for that extra push to leave your comfort zone to try something new? Or, do you simply want to emerge in some classy girly fun for a night to chase your stress away?
If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, then "Legally Blonde: The Musical," an energetic, empowering, heart-warming (not to mention it's full of pink!) musical, may just be the perfect potion for you.
Based on the novel of the same name by Amanda Brown, "Legally Blonde: The Musical" tells a morality tale (in a fun and dazzling way) about how Elle Woods, a fresh college graduate with a degree in fashion merchandising, takes on Harvard Law School with humor, charm and deceptive smarts. As she attempts to be “taken serious” by her peers and fights for her dignity, Elle eventually "finds herself" after a few triumphs and failures.
The entire play is overflowing with high-voltage choreography, emotion-filled songs, catchy tunes, humor and vivacious, bubbly acting. The most impressive thing is that despite the various physical and emotionally taxing songs and dance numbers, the entire cast is able to belt out tunes wholeheartedly and dance with bundles of energy, all while smiling brightly. You'll be glued to the edge of your seat, devoting all your attention to these talented actors and actresses.
“What You Want” is the most empowering number in the musical. The cast’s excellent performance will likely convince you that “what you want is right in front of you,” and with determination and an open mind, everything is achievable.
The most intricate and physically demanding number, “Whipped Into Shape,” mirrors the heroine’s personality; this song is about the strength that might hide beneath a saccharine disguise. Jaycie Dotin (as Brooke) sings this song, and she handles this exhausting number deftly with ease and grace, proving to the audience that she has more to offer beyond her abs of steel and killer looks.
Some may say "Legally Blonde: The Musical" tells a story of female empowerment. However, I would say, this play will appeal to and empower people of both genders. "Legally Blonde: The Musical" is certainly a crowd-pleaser.
