I went to see this with my boyfriend who moaned and complained pretty much all the way about how it would be too girly and boring and pink etc but we both really enjoyed it.
The story follows that of the film which I am sure most people reading this will know but basically, Elle Woods thinks her boyfriend Warner is going to propose but he actually dumps her because she isn't serious and he is going to Harvard Law School to find an educated wife. Elle sees this as a challege and works really hard to get into Havard to prove to Warner that she isn't just about sororities and girly things, but she is serious and intelligent too. She gets there, steals the show, becomes an awesome laywer and doesn't even need Warner in the end.
The acting was really good and Sheriden Smith was amazing. Duncan James wasn't in it the day we went but the understoody was good. There were actually a lot of understoodies playing when I went, which wasn't told to us until I bought a programme and it was inside there on a little slip of paper. Luckilly Sheriden and Jill Halfpenny (the people I was most bothered about) were playing so I wasn't too dissapointed.
The songs were awesome, they were catchy, fun, well performed... The lyrics were in the most funny and easy to hear and the dances were all amazing and because of these I could watch it again and again. I would have bought the soundtrack but I didnt have enough money (The programme was £7 and the CD £14). The playlist is available on spotify though.
The theatre was the Savoy on the strand and it was easy to get to and the seats were comfortable. We booked our seats online and paid £43 for 2 upper circle seats. These were absolutely fine to be honest but no one sat in front of us and we were dead centre. I think ambassador tickets picks the best seats left for you when you book. I think you can book on the day but none of the half price ticket booths had deals on Legally Blonde so I think it is rather fixed price.
We BOTH had a brilliant time and really enjoyed ourselves. The music was amazing, we fell in love with the UPS man and for £43 I really really reccomend going.
Summary: Can't give it more stars
