Legally Blonde the Musical
Its easy to hate on a musical that opens with a number called Omigod You Guys, but at the same time... it takes some balls to open a musical with a number called Omigod You Guys. The 2001 box-office hit starring Reese Witherspoon could have been an awful, cant-turn-away car-crash of pink flames and flirtini-flavored smoke. Instead, it dealt with the ditzy-blonde stereotype using a central character that both personified the stereotype and outmaneuvered it. Elle Woods graduates UCLA, goes to Harvard Law and cracks a murder case, but she remains a fuchsia-sweatered, chihuahua-toting little thing. The touring musical version of Legally Blonde retains its chick-flick charm and the storyline that may be a little dumb, but rarely vapid.
