Legally Blonde - The Musical

On Tuesday, October 16, I was pleased to be invited to attend a special performance and reception of the smash hit Broadway Musical Legally Blonde! It was so awesome to once again meet the bubbly star of the show, Laura Bell Bundy! She was stunning as always and mentioned to the audience after the performance how the Actors Funds helps all kinds of performance artists "even Drag Queens" she said as she smiled at me! The story is one that I truly identify with, being a blonde myself! It's a "fish out of water" saga about a fun-loving California Blonde going to Harvard Law School to win back her boyfriend. At first she doesn't fit in, being at a place where everyone is so serious and wear black even when no one is dead. But she eventually wins everyone over with her charm and enthusiasm. Jerry Mitchell, who I met several times at Broadway Bears, was the director and dance choreographer. The sets, the supporting cast, the music and dancing were all fantastic. And one of the best parts of the show were the adorable dogs, a Chihuahua named Bruiser and a Bulldog!
