‘Legally Blonde – The Musical’ – Blonde But Not So Dumb
Having vaguely dreaded it, I was very pleasantly surprised by ‘Legally Blonde’ on the West End stage, which had a smart, knowing book, good performances and witty lyrics. The excellent score is by Laurence O’Keefe, who had a cult hit a few years back with the edgy, dark ‘Bat Boy’. This time he’s rustled up a crowd-pleaser but any fan of ‘Bat Boy’s sharp songs will find a lot to enjoy here. Check out the number below, which starts at around 3:20 in the clip, in which Elle Woods becomes convinced that her court witness is gay.
