PLEASE NOTE THE NEW SCHEDULE FOR THIS PRODUCTION
Legally Blonde The Musical
Music & Lyrics by Laurence O’Keefe & Nell Benjamin
Book by Heather Hach
Directed by Gavin Mayer
Perfectly pink and infused with fun, frivolity, and a come-from-behind, feel-good story, this upbeat musical comedy tells the tale of Elle Woods, a blonde sorority darling, who turns the “stereo type” upside down and heads to Harvard Law School to win back her boyfriend, a big case, and our hearts. Based on the 2001 movie starring Reese Witherspoon.
