'Legally Blonde The Musical' at Miller Auditorium
Sept. 17, 2010
KALAMAZOO--"Legally Blonde The Musical" makes its West Michigan debut Thursday and Friday, Oct. 14-15, at Western Michigan University's Miller Auditorium. Shows start at 7:30 p.m. Thursday and 8 p.m. Friday.
Sorority star Elle Woods doesn't take no for an answer. So, when her boyfriend dumps her for someone more "serious," Elle puts down the credit card, hits the books, and sets out to go where no Delta Nu has gone before: Harvard Law. Along the way, Elle proves that being true to yourself never goes out of style.
In its first year on Broadway, "Legally Blonde The Musical" earned seven Tony nominations, 10 Drama Desk nominations and an Outer Critics Circle Award. That same year, MTV aired the musical in its entirety to stellar ratings, and was subsequently nominated for two Daytime Emmy Awards.
