What do you get when.... combine high heels, a chihuahua, singing and dancing, good friends, law school and a blonde? You get a totally delightful evening at the Broadway musical Legally Blonde. The only thing that would have made the night better was if we were actually able to see it on Broadway.

I have a group of friends who have been working hard to stop working so hard. Seriously, these women have demanding jobs that they love and pour their hearts into. However, when they realized that work was taking over their lives they determined they were going to reclaim their lives to achieve a more harmonious balance. Part of the plan was to purchase tickets to four Broadway shows that were making a visit in our city. So the four of us plunked down our money for a little bit of culture.

Legally Blonde was the third of the four shows. This book made into a movie made into a musical is the story of Elle Woods, a sorority girl with a fashion degree who is about to lose the love of her life to law school. She decides to fight back and lands a coveted spot at Harvard Law. In her quest to restore the balance to her life by winning back her boyfriend she finds that there is more to life and to herself than she thought.

I love the Legally Blonde movies so I was thrilled to be able to see the musical. There’s just something about the singing and dancing that appeals to me. This night was a fun time with friends and I am eager to see the next show, which is another favorite of mine, Grease. That’s a jaunt right back to junior high school when the first movie came out. If you have the opportunity to see Broadway shows in your area, I do recommend them. Nothing like a little bit of culture wherever you live!
