What is Legally Blonde the Musical about?

Legally Blonde the Musical is a fun and uplifting musical of self-discovery. The musical follows the book by Heather Hach, novel by Amanda Brown and MGM movie starred by Reese Witherspoon.

The musical is based on the transformation story of Elle Woods as she tackles stereotypes to achieve her life dreams. Elle sparkles a relationship with Warner but things don’t go as expected when her boyfriend decides to join Harvard. Warner dumps Elle to join Harvard law school and achieve his political aspirations.

Elle rises to the challenge of finding her way to Harvard with an unshakable spirit of not giving up on her relationship. She has to deal with many pressures, including her ex, professors, and new classmates.

Legally Blonde was the first fully staged Broadway production to air on TV while still showing on Broadway.
