Legally Blonde: The Musical

When: Aug. 31-Sept. 23 2012

Charleston Stage is having a blonde moment this season with a production of Legally Blonde, the Musical. Adapted from the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer production starring Reese Witherspoon, the musical features a lot more than bubble-gum pop — expect to hear classical, reggae, pop, and everything in between. But although there's a lot more singing and dancing than there was on the silver screen, we've been assured the plot sticks close to the original. "It's definitely like the movie," says Charleston Stage's Beth Curley. "It's a journey [for Elle Woods] to discover herself and find the truth about herself, what her role is, what her mission is ... it's a feel-good show." With a cast of 28, Legally Blonde, the Musical stars one of last season's resident guest actors, Vanessa Moyen, as Elle Woods. Also for the production, Charleston Stage is teaming up with Pet Helpers by enlisting two of its dogs to play Elle's furry friend. Bruiser, who is not yet adopted, will be showcased in hopes that he will be adopted after the show.
