The Show

This fabulous international award-winning musical, based on the hit movie, follows the transformation of Elle Woods as she tackles stereotypes, snobbery, and scandal in pursuit of her dreams. From the sorority house to the halls of justice, the show is equal parts hilarious and heart-warming — it’s so much fun it should be illegal!

SPECIAL NOTE Given the strong female empowerment message of the play, the production team has partnered with First Step, an organization whose mission is to eliminate both domestic and sexual violence by providing comprehensive services to individuals and families impacted by these crimes. Those interested in supporting First Step can do so by donating a consumable item (paper towel, toilet paper, shampoo, toothbrushes, toothpaste, hair brushes, etc.) during one of the Legally Blonde performances. All donations will be given to the organization after the show’s run.

First Step’s Wish List of items may be viewed here.
