Like, OMG: Legally Blonde the Musical sashays in
Audiences are in for an upbeat treat when The Court Theatre’s production of Legally Blonde the Musical bounces into theatres on the 26th of November, running throughout summer until the 21st of January. The award-winning Broadway sensation was based on the Amanda Brown novel and hit 2001 Reese-Witherspoon-starrer of the same name, and true to form a hilarious comedy that smashes plenty of stereotypes, while also throwing catchy tunes and even an actual dog into the mix ("never work with children or animals" be damned!). Perky college student Elle Woods (played by Toi Whakaari grad newcomer Ellie Neal, pictured) is accustomed to getting what she wants and has her life all planned out, right down to the boyfriend she plans to marry. Those plans are turned upside down when her boyfriend dumps her for someone more ‘serious’, motivating Elle to enrol at Harvard Law School so she can prove she’s capable of much more than anyone thought. As Elle wins over her sceptical classmates she also becomes involved in a high-profile trial where her particular world view may prove the key to cracking the case.
Complete with a full band and spectacular set, this can't-miss production is set to be like, totally awesome.
