Blonde is back for Empire run
OMG, you guys, Legally Blonde The Musical is coming to the Liverpool Empire next week! The smash-hit Broadway and West End Musical, based on the much-loved movie, stars Rita Simons as Paulette Bonafonte, Lucie Jones as Elle Woods and Bill Ward as Professor Callahan.
The plot follows beautiful and popular sorority sister Elle Woods, who loves to be pampered and is passionate about pink.
When she is dumped by her boyfriend, Warner Huntington III, for a more serious girlfriend, she puts down the credit cards and picks up the books.
Packing up her trusty dog, bruiser, she bags herself a place at Harvard Law School to try to win him back.
With the support of her new friends, she learns that you can be both smart and fashionable.
Rita Simons is best known for playing Roxy Mitchell in BBC’s Eastenders, for which she has won numerous awards and is one of Britain’s best loved actresses.
Lucie Jones, who represented the UK at the Eurovision Song Contest with Never Give Up On You, and recently starred as Maureen in the 20th anniversary tour of Rent, has played Elle Woods before in the Leicester Curve production and was a finalist in the 2009 series of The X Factor.
Bill Ward is best known for his work on two of the country’s leading soaps, Emmerdale and Coronation Street, but Bill is no stranger to the stage and has performed in Spamalot and The Tempest.
This all-singing, all-dancing romantic comedy is a fun-filled, filled, feel feel-good good pink fest.
