Sorority star Elle Woods doesn't
take "no" for an answer. So when her boyfriend dumps her for someone
"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.
Reese Witherspoon first brought Elle Woods to the screen in 2001, creating a
blonde heroine the like never seen before. The movie was a hit and
Elle came a lager-than-life character in film history.
In 2007, Legally Blonde opened on Broadway at the Palace Theatre with
Laura Bell Bundy starring as Elle. Joining her on stage were Broadway
heavyweights Christian Borle as Emmett, Orfeh as Paulette, and Michael
Rupert as Professor Callahan. The show was a "fun and upbeat
production" that garnered ten Drama Desk Award nominations and seven Tony
During its run, the show was filmed and aired on MTV. Following that,
MTV aired the series Legally Blonde - The Musical: The Search for Elle
Woods, which was a reality competition to find the new Elle once Bundy
left the show.
When Legally Blonde concluded its run on Broadway, it had played for
over 600 performances. It was then followed by a national tour and a
number of international productions. Now, Elle and her friends come to
Mid-Maryland for a fresh new regional staging!
