Big Apple Elle?

Omigod, omigod you guys! Last weekend, I saw "Legally Blonde – The Musical" live on Broadway. And seriously, it was like, the best musical I've ever seen in my life. Jamie, Lauren and I squealed and snapped in delight as the lives of heroine Elle Woods, villain Warner Huntington III and not-completely unfortunate looking Vivian Kensington came to life through music and sparkly, over-the-top dance numbers!

The songs and sets were uber-fab, and I marveled at how Elle's life parallels my own in so many ways. My senator-wannabe ex with his political aspirations broke up with me because why? Ah, that's right. The same reason that Warner broke up with Elle… she was too blonde, not serious enough, and he needed a Jackie, not a Marilyn. Well, I may not be blonde anymore, but being the Marilyn is like, so much better than having a stuffy old boyfriend anyways! Whatev, I've learned that if I'm going to totally rule the world by the time I'm 30, I need a boyfriend who's not such a complete bonehead.

Oh my gosh, one time, I lobbied for animal welfare reform on Capitol Hill - just like Elle did in Legally Blonde 2: Red, White and Blonde. And I totally wore pink. Okay, so back to the musical. The sorority scenes like, totally stole the show. I mean, I know when I was in a sorority (hello, another similarity… Delta Nu = Delta Delta Delta) we totally bonded over costume parties and shrieking. Oh, and throwing out the Delta triangle hand-signal was pretty much a daily occurrence. Plus, I totally own the signature Tiffany's heart toggle necklace from the movie, and I unabashedly admit that I wore it and hot pink to the show, even though pink is no longer my signature color.

Whoever said Legally Blonde couldn't be a profound and touching musical was seriously disturbed. What, like it's hard? The composer who wrote the music must exercise a lot…because exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people just don't write gloomy, depressing musicals, they just don't.

My review: "Legally Blonde -- the Musical" is just like senior year -- except for funner!
Score: 179! 179! 179!

Love, love, love it! Why didn't you mention 'Ireland,' though? That was SO the best part.
