The AW school musical this fall is Legally Blonde: The Musical. With rehearsals in full swing, students are working hard to memorize lines, dance steps, and characterization.
But where did the play come from? The play is based off of the movie produced by MGM Studios in 2001. The movie is based off of a book called Legally Blonde written by Amanda Brown.
The play debuted on Broadway in 2007, the play earned seven Tony Award Nominations, 10 Drama Desk Award Nominations, as well as ranked in the Top 10 most requested Ticketmaster “Arts and Theatre Events” for 2007.
The play is an award winning hit, the winner of “Best New Musical” at the Olivier Awards in London in 2011.
The musical was a hit on Broadway and is now touring England. The show put on by the AW theatre department is sure to be no less spectacular.
