The Stage: The month in theatre

Legally Blonde

For fans of the 2001 comedy Legally Blonde that can’t be satisfied by merely watching it on cable practically every day, the only remedy is to “bend and snap” their way to see Theatre Cedar Rapids’ production of Legally Blonde: The Musical. This live version incorporates songs into the story of how sorority girl Elle Woods tries to win back her ex-boyfriend by attending Harvard Law School. Along the way she finds a purpose in life, makes new friends and proves that an encyclopedic knowledge of hair care products might come in handy someday. The show runs March 1-23. Tickets are available online at theatrecr.org. Just sit back, relax and try not to think about how Elle from the original movie is almost ready to celebrate her 10-year law school reunion.
