Legally Blonde On Broadway

Legally Blonde On Broadway

A musical version of "Legally Blonde," based on the hit movie starring Reese Witherspoon and the novel by Amanda Brown, will open on Broadway in April 2007. The show, which has music and lyrics by Nell Benjamin and Laurence O’Keefe and a book by Heather Hach, tells the story of a determined young woman, who, when dumped by her boyfriend, goes to Harvard Law School, which her ex also attends. No casting was announced, but the show will mark the Broadway directorial debut of Jerry Mitchell, who won a 2005 Tony Award for his choreography for the revival of "La Cage aux Folles." Mitchell, who also created the dances for "Hairspray" and "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels," also will do the choreography for "Legally Blonde." The show will open April 26, 2007, at a Broadway theater to be announced. Preview performances begin March 30. San Francisco will see the musical first, with a five-week engagement at the Orpheum Theatre beginning in late January.

YES, PLEASE.  And in other good news, Penelope co-starring Reese Witherspoon and Christina Ricci will premiere at this year’s New York Film Festival on November 24th.  Above are pictures of Reese in Brentwood, CA, carrying around iced-tea-coffee-whatever drinks yesterday morning.  More pictures in the gallery!
