Ohmigod, you guys: The Covedale Center’s production of Legally Blonde is like, totally fabulous. A bubbly, warm, laugh-out-loud evening of theater at its cutest, Blonde is well produced and wonderfully entertaining.
Elle Woods has it made — she’s president of Delta Nu sorority at UCLA, has a 4.0 in fashion merchandising, and she’s just waiting for her boyfriend Warren to pop the question.
But instead of engaged, Elle gets unceremoniously dumped. Warren lets her down gently, explaining that she’s just not serious enough. He needs a Jackie, not a Marilyn. He’s off to Harvard Law, after all. Devastated, Elle does what any self-respecting girl would: She forgoes senior-year beer bashes for studying, earns a stellar LSAT score, and follows (you might say stalks) her ex to an Ivy League law school so she can live happily ever after.
But things don’t turn out how Elle anticipated.
Legally Blonde: The Musical, presented by the Covedale Center for the Performing Arts, continues through May 5.
