How sad is that title; it wasn't very creative at all! Regardless, I'm talking (rambling maybe...) about something very creative: musicals! Recently, I was lucky enough to get tickets to see the musical "Legally Blonde" at our local theatre. I didn't have high hopes for the production because the musical was based off a well known movie (as you probably know!). Nonetheless, I was really excited because I have seem multiple productions at that theatre and they have all been great. Before the show even began I noted on the interesting scenery and prop choices. Most of the props were small or open because it was a theatre in the round (audience members were sitting on all sides) but they were also eye-catching, interesting and fit the performance well. The show opened with a catchy song that was not only funny, but told the back story flawlessly and the singing was phenomenal. Throughout the show I was captivated. It was hilarious, the characters were very personable and the movie was recreated in what I felt was an even better performance, not to mention a great message.
Overall, I would give it five out of five stars. *****
Not only did I thoroughly enjoy the show, but it reminded me how much respect I have for the cast and crew of musicals. When watching a show, the audience is reminded how much time and effort goes into every production! In Legally Blonde there were two live dogs that not only behaved nicely on stage but they barked seemingly without a command and did all of their tricks perfectly. It really showed how long they had worked on the production and the audience could tell. I was very, very impressed! Definitely go and check it out :)
-Keep you're eyes open for an upcoming Jersey Boys musical review! :D
5 star performance :)
