It's here--and it's "AN ELLE OF A SHOW" (Time Magazine)! The hilarious MGM film is Broadway's new smash hit, and now Legally Blonde the Musical is coming to you. Legally Blonde follows sorority star Elle Woods, an underestimated blonde who doesn't take "no" for an answer. When her boyfriend dumps her for someone more "serious," Elle puts down the credit card, hits the books, and sets out to go where no Delta Nu has gone before: Harvard Law. Along the way, Elle proves that being true to yourself never goes out of style. After turning Broadway and MTV hot pink, this "feel-good song and dance juggernaut" (New York Magazine) is "the best new musical around!" (WOR).
