West end stage show Legally Blonde will finish it's fantastic three year run at the Savoy Theatre in London on April 7th 2012.
Legally Blonde The Musical turned the Savoy Theatre into a pink haven to host the stage adaptation of the 2001 movie, following a successful run on Broadway. The west end production of the stage show opened to 4 star reviews in January 2010 with Paul Taylor of the Independent declaring: "I had thought snootily that the stage show of Legally Blonde might put the "ugh" in "euuuugh!" But omigod was I like totally blown away."
The show is set in the prestigious halls of Harvard Law School and the colourful rooms of the equally colourful Elle Woods's sorority house, Legally Blonde The Musical follows Elle as she pledges to lay down her credit cards and hit the law books in order to win back the heart of her ex-boyfriend Warner.
The stage show production has a musical score and lyrics by Laurence O'Keefe and Nell Benjamin with catchy songs including Omigod You Guys, So Much Better and Whipped Into Shape.
Sheridan Smith, who originated the lead role of Elle Woods, won widespread critical acclaim for her portrayal of the fluffy, scatty but gutsy blonde, winning the much lauded Musical Olivier award for Best Actress.
Current stars of the show at the Savoy, Carley Stenson, Stephen Ashfield and Ben Freeman, as well as original cast member Peter Davison, will continue in their roles until the musical finishes its west end run in April.
Fans of Legally Blonde will be delighted to hear that the show will continue its national tour and plans are in place for an Australian production which should open in Sydney later this year.
