Legally Blonde the Musical is coming to stage at The Cobb Civic Center’s Jennie T. Anderson Theatre August 10 through 26. Get your pink on and join Atlanta Lyric Theatre for this all-singing, all-dancing, feel-good musical comedy.
This award-winning Broadway musical sensation is based on the hit movie starring Reese Witherspoon. Legally Blonde the Musical follows college sweetheart and homecoming queen Elle Woods, played by The Lyric’s Alison Brannon Wilhoit, as she puts down the credit card, hits the books and heads for Harvard Law School in pursuit of her boyfriend Warner Huntington III, played by Matthew Ragas.
There she encounters Professor Callahan, played by award-winning Atlanta actor Alan Kilpatrick, and proves that being true to yourself never goes out of style.
Legally Blonde the Musical will take you from the social whirl of California campus life to Harvard's halls of justice with Elle, her Chihuahua, Bruiser, and the bulldog-toting hairdresser Paulette, played by local favorite Mary Nye Bennett.
Legally Blonde the Musical was nominated for 7 Tony Awards in 2007 and won the Olivier Award for Best Musical in London.
