(The other thread for the London production of this show deals specifically with the first public performance by the company and is titled as such, so no other option but to start a new thread for this topic.)


[-o< I was worried.


The show does look like fun. However, it looks like a carbon-copy of the fun the show already experienced on Broadway.

I absolutely HATE Elle's Harvard outfit. The Broadway version was bad enough. Why did they have to add that unflattering blouse under that garish shirt? Blech.

As most intital professional productions of a show are. What's the problem?

It's always bugged me to a certain extent. It'd be nice to see new flavor added to certain shows. Then again, we don't need another RENT 10.

Saw this last weekend and it is not a carbon copy as the cast put their own stamp on it for sure! If the broadway production had good foundations for a good show already, why reinvent the wheel, wiht regards to the set and choreography or whatever, It was fab! When wicked came to broadway, I thought it was fab like loved it, and then people seemed to complain about how it was made British, how can they get it right?Not change it at all, change it? Can't please everyone I guess!

I saw this show at th 5th Ave Theatre in March through the Broadway across America; I had more fun than I expected to and was pleasantly surprised by the songs.

If you get the chance, go see it!

I've only heard the cast recorind for Legally Blonde but after listening to it a couple of times the songs are stuck in my head. It looks like fun and I hope to see it in London in the summer :D

I couldn't agree more! Elle is supposed to be a woman of style and fashion (after all she studied fashion merchandise)- so why would she suddenly wear that horrible outfit?
Some outfits were changed a bit on broadway when Baily Hanks got the part-and they looked so much better (than befooore- haha)- though it seems impossible to find pictures of it at the moment strangely enough :P

This musical hasn't come to my city yet, but I am excited for it to!! I loved the first Legally Blonde movie and if the musical is anything along that story line then this musical will be fantastic! I think that there is a little bit of Elle Woods in all of us.
