Legally Blonde The Musical Festival Theatre Edinburgh Review Monday 27th November
With Edinburgh Entertainment & Arts
Legally Blonde The Musical stops off at The Festival Theatre Edinburgh this week (Mon 27 Nov to Sat 2 Dec) bringing our favourite characters from the 2001 hit movie to energetic life on stage.
Rita Simons plays a fun bold character (Paulette Buonufonte) with plenty to say and sing and went off on an Irish dance tangent for some reason which the audience loved.
Lucie Jones as Elle Woods gave a great performance and with her amazing voice and stage presence had the audience’s affection from the start to fabulous finish. I liked the song “Chip on My Shoulder” where she finds her motivation to become "Legally Blonde" with the help of Emmett.
Bill Ward takes to the stage with style, great confidence and poise, his portrayal of Professor Callahan hits the mark and I had to resist booing him off stage when his intentions are revealed.
David Barrett plays Emmett well and I could feel the connection between him and Elle grow.
Liam Doyle was spot on as Warner Huntington III and the song "Serious" where Elle is expecting a proposal is perfectly timed and highly entertaining.
Favourite number comes in at the start of Act 2 and is "Whipped Into Shape", it involves glowing skipping ropes and the whole company.
The set was very bright and fun, using the full depth of the space to perform some great full company choreographed numbers.
Overall the show was very entertaining, funny and positive, the audience loved it, with the obligatory mega mix of the show’s songs I left with the tunes stuck in my head (well at least until I got into the car).
