Overview

Direct from three triumphant years in the West End, the award-winning, smash-hit cerise musical Legally Blonde struts into the New Wimbledon Theatre. Following a successful Broadway debut, the musical went on to dazzle London’s Savoy Theatre, starring Sheridan Smith as the savvy sorority sister Elle Woods and earning the coveted Olivier Award for Best Musical.

Legally Blonde the Musical is the inspirational story of Elle Woods, UCLA sorority president turned successful lawyer. After spending her life dreaming about marrying her long-term boyfriend Warner, Elle is shocked when he decides to break up with her to date someone more “serious” and decides to follow him to Harvard Law School to prove just how serious she can be. When Elle actually gets into the school, she meets Warner’s new girlfriend Vivienne and soon discovers that she is much smarter than she, and others, ever thought possible.

Faye Brooks (Grease) stars as Elle, stepping into the same pink pumps that have been worn by Sheridan Smith, Susan McFadden and Carly Stenson. Iwan Lewis (Fame) plays opposite her as Emmett, with well-known celebrities Gareth Gates and Jennifer Ellison joining the cast as Warner and Paulette. Gates is best-known for Pop Idol, but has since gone on to become a West End favourite, featuring in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, Les Miserables and Loserville. Ellison has credits including The Phantom of the Opera and Chicago.

With a book by Heather Hach and music and lyrics by Nell Benjamin and Laurence O’Keefe, Legally Blonde has proved to be a sparkling success, with a score including “Omigod You Guys”, “Positive”, “So Much Better”, “Bend and Snap” and, of course, “Legally Blonde”. Directed and choreographed by the prolific Jerry Mitchell (Hairspray), Legally Blonde the Musical is one of the funniest, freshest and most fabulous shows around.

Saw the standby for Lucie but was still amazing, great atmosphere - the dogs stole the show though!

Chicago is good but I am wondering if it's better in Broadway.

I didn't enjoy the use of instruments during the show but other than that was an amazing show.
