Harvard's beloved blonde takes the stage by pink storm in this fun, upbeat musical about self-discovery. Based on the popular movie, Legally Blonde: The Musical stays true to form with a peppy score and playful book.
Legally Blonde: The Musical tells the story of Sorority star Elle Woods (Alyssa Barzach),who doesn’t take no for an answer. So when her boyfriend Warner (Noah Drazen) dumps her for someone “serious” like Vivian (Elizabeth Lavelle), Elle puts down the credit card, hits the book, and sets out to go where no Delta Nu has gone before: Harvard Law. Along the way, Elle proves that being true to oneself never goes out of style.
