LEGALLY BLONDE, THE MUSICAL opens officially at the Savoy theatre tonight, with a whopping £2.5M in advanced ticket sales already under its belt, probably a pink one.
Based on the 2001 movie starring Reese Witherspoon, LB tells the story of Elle Woods, a ditzy girl who follows the guy who dumped her to Harvard to prove him wrong and ends up proving herself right.
Going off the buzz already created by its preview shows and those ticket sales, this has 'Hit!' written all over it, not least thanks to the winning performance from Sheridan Smith - the blonde one out of Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps - in the Witherspoon role.
Seats for the first few shows are long gone, but we have tickets from this Friday, 16 January, though they‘re going pretty fast.
