Adapted from the smash hit film of the same title, Legally Blonde the Musical is the story of Elle Woods, a sugary sweet sorority bombshell who is devastated when her boyfriend Warner drops her for someone more “serious” to go alongside his law degree. Instead of throwing herself into a spot of retail therapy, Elle opts to swap shoes for seminars and follows him all the way to Harvard Law School. Her decision turns out to have more than textbooks in store, as Elle unexpectedly finds herself on an empowering journey of self-discovery involving a gay chihuahua, muscled delivery man and ditzy manicurist en route!
Since transferring from New York to the London stage of the Savoy Theatre in 2009, Legally Blonde’s sassy mix of wit and likeable characters has been one of the Britain’s favourite modern musicals. It has been widely praised by the public and the critics alike, and it won three respected Olivier Awards in its first year, including that of Best New Musical. The Legally Blonde tour of the UK and Ireland continues through October 2012.
