The international award-winning hit LEGALLY BLONDE THE MUSICAL is coming to the Princess Theatre, Melbourne in May 2013 for a strictly limited season (tickets on sale 17 December). It was a smash hit musical in New York for 2 years and for 3 years in London where it won the coveted Best New Musical Olivier Award.
LEGALLY BLONDE THE MUSICAL is bubbling over with fun and has had audiences across the globe, shimmying in their seats, weeping with laughter and swooning over the UPS delivery guy since the first Broadway production in 2007.
Follow Elle Woods (Lucy Durack) as she packs up her chihuahua Bruiser, trading the social whirl of Californian campus life for Harvard Law School to win back her man, Warner (Rob Mills). With the help of her new found friends Paulette (Helen Dallimore), Emmett (David Harris), Elle realises that staying true to yourself never goes out of style.
LEGALLY BLONDE THE MUSICAL is the London and Broadway sensation created by a world-class creative team, led by Tony Award-winning director and Olivier Award-nominated Broadway choreographer /director Jerry Mitchell (Hairspray). This feel good musical comedy will be the highlight of your theatre going year. The verdict? This much fun shouldn't be legal!
