Base Entertainment Asia is bringing the perky fashionista Elle Woods and her fabulously fun and quirky, International award-winning Broadway Musical, Legally Blonde – The Musical, to The Mastercard Theatres at Marina Bay Sands for the first time, this May.
Based on the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer popular movie starring Reese Witherspoon, Legally Blonde was a box office success when it opened in 2001, grossing a worldwide of over US$1.4 million. Later that year, it was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture: Musical or Comedy at the Golden Globe Awards ceremony.
Like the film, Legally Blonde, The Musical is an all-singing, all-dancing romantic comedy about a southern California co-ed cutie, Elle, who never takes no for an answer. So when her boyfriend, Warner, dumps her for not being serious about her future, Elle turns her attention from fashion to books and enrols in Harvard Law School to win him back.
Far from her comfort zone, Elle is suddenly a misfit. But with the help of new friends; Emmett – a teaching assistant with a working class background, Paulette – a down-on-her-luck hairdresser and Greek chorus made up of UCLA sorority sisters, who only she can see, Elle finds her true calling in life – and hint, it’s not Warner.
After the original Broadway production was nominated for seven Tony Awards, including Best Original Score and Best Leading Actress in a Musical, this sparkling new pink production has been put together by the creative team that brought you Big League’s My Fair Lady, one of New York’s leading directors Jeffery Moss and Tony nominated choreographer Bob Richard. The highly catchy songs and lyrics are by Laurence O’Keefe and Nell Benjamin.
With a cast of over 25 performers from New York and two dogs coupled with three new inventively designed, dynamic LED video screens that features “hot/pop” video by Daniel Brodie (Disney’s Aladdin, MOTOWN, Troika’s JOSEPH and Wizard of Oz tours), and snazzy modern scenery, costumes, lights and sound, the show is guaranteed to bring audiences joy and laughter.
