Westchester Broadway Theatre Presents LEGALLY BLONDE, 3/29-4/29
Based on the hit movie, Legally Blonde is described as "a fresh and effervescent evening of musical fun, stylishly wrapped up in a smart pink bow!"
When Sorority girl, Elle Woods (Kelly D. Felthous) is dumped by her boyfriend, Warner Huntington III. (Robert Patric Ryan), she decides to get "serious" to win her boyfriend back.
