Starting in mid-June, Lee Mead will join the West End cast of Olivier`s award-winning Legally Blonde The Musical to play Emmett Forrest. He joins Susan McFadden as Elle Woods, Carley Stenson as Margot, Nicola Brazil as Serena, Siobhan Dillon as Vivienne and Peter Davison as Professor Callahan. Alex Gaumond, who has played Emmett since the series` British premiere, has now extended his run until mid-June, when Mead will take over. McFadden played the role of Serena in the original West End cast of the musical Legally Blonde at the Savoy Theatre in London`s West End. Official criticism and public reactions have been overwhelmingly positive. [ref. needed] Beginning October 25, McFadden became Elle`s assistant, performing on Mondays and Tuesdays. McFadden began playing the role of Elle Woods full-time on January 10, 2011,[4] leaving the role on January 9, 2011. He was nominated for a WhatsOnStage Award for Best Takeover. She was later replaced by former Margot and understudy Elle Carley Stenson. Legally Blonde is a 2007 musical comedy by Laurence O`Keefe and Nell Benjamin. The film is based on Amanda Brown`s novel Legally Blonde and the 2001 film of the same name.

Lucy Durack played Elle Woods with Rob Mills as Warner, David Harris as Emmett, Erika Heynatz as Brooke Wyndham and Helen Dallimore as Paulette, with Cameron Daddo returning to the Australian stage for the first time in 20 years to play Professor Callahan. In 2008, she played the lead role of Milly in the UK tour of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers alongside Steven Houghton.[31] [1] For more information, see Nadine Higgin has a varied stage CV ranging from musicals to Shakespeare. His credits include Shenzi in The Lion King, Cliff in Alan Bennett`s Allelujah and Sir Toby Belch in Twelfth Night at Shakespeare`s Globe. Lauren Drew played Catherine of Aragon on the 2021/22 UK tour. This isn`t her first time at the Regents Park Open Air Theatre, as she starred in the 2019 Evita Ensemble/Cover production of Eva Peron. Elle`s snobbish classmates disapprove of her clothes, and the only person willing to help her is legal assistant Emmett Forrest (“The Harvard Variations”). However, he cannot protect her from the bloodthirsty Professor Callahan (“Blood In The Water”) in class. Callahan kicks Elle out of the classroom at the suggestion of her classmate Vivienne Kensington, who happens to be Warner`s new friend. This “tragedy” evokes the apparitions of the sisters of Delta Nu, who, as a Greek choir visible and audible only by Her, encourage them to remain positive (“positive”). She, believing that the blonde is the problem, decides to become a brunette. She goes to the Hair Affair salon, where she meets beautician Paulette, who, after telling Elle about her hair dyeing plan, tells Elle that when she`s down, she puts on her favorite Celtic Moods CD and dreams of Ireland and her Irishman dream.

In the living room, Vivienne unexpectedly invites Elle to a costume party. Paulette sends Elle dressed in a costume for the party with encouraging words (“Ireland (Reprise)”). “This explosion of neon pink joy will light up every day. The kitschy and dancing score and witty lyrics are an absolute joy. This show is like, TOTAL FAB YOU GUYS! She was one of the dancers on the Rock & Roll Show Tour and Daniel O`Donnell`s DVD. She also played the role of Kathy in a highly acclaimed Irish production of Singing in the Rain in 2004. The show was performed at the Olympia Theatre in Dublin and the Everyman Palace Theatre in Cork. During the development phase of the musical, a demo recording of twelve songs featuring Kerry Butler and others under the name Elle was released. The demo included workbench versions of “There! Right there! ” (called on the sampler “Gay or European”), “Blood in the Water”, “Omigod You Guys”, “Serious”, “What You Want”, “Legally Blonde”, “Legally Blonde Remix”, “So Much Better” and “Take It Like a Man”, in addition to two songs that were not present in the final version of the show: “Beacon of Positivity” (which became “Love and War” for the previews and finally “Positive” for the final version of the show) and “Good Boy”, a song instead of “Ireland”.

[63] The licensed orchestration follows the orchestration used in the West End production: three keyboards, bass, guitar, drums, percussion, two wooden voices, two trumpets, trombone and solo violin.

In addition to winning the 2011 Laurence Olivier Awards for Best New Musical, Best Actress in a Musical (Sheridan Smith) and Best Supporting Role in a Musical (Jill Halfpenny), Legally Blonde The Musical is now available until March 31, 2011. The treasure of the university and the queen of the return home Elle Woods does not take no as an answer. When her Warner boyfriend leaves her for someone serious, she puts away the credit card, beats the books, and goes to Harvard Law! Along the way, She proves that being true to yourself never goes out of style.
