The Artist Series Presents LEGALLY BLONDE THE MUSICAL 1/11/2011
THE NATIONAL TOUR OF LEGALLY BLONDE THE MUSICAL will begin performances at Jacksonville's Times Union Center's Moran Theater on Tuesday, January 11, 2011 and will play through Sunday, January 16, 2011. Tickets go on sale Sunday, November 7, 2010.
Sorority star Elle Woods doesn't take "no" for an answer. So when her boyfriend dumps her for someone more "serious," Elle puts down the credit card, hits the books, and sets out to go where no Delta Nu has gone before: Harvard Law. Along the way, Elle proves that being true to yourself never goes out of style.
In its first year on Broadway, LEGALLY BLONDE THE MUSICAL earned seven 2007 Tony Award nominations, ten 2007 Drama Desk Award Nominations, and a 2007 Outer Critics Circle Award. The musical also ranked in the top ten list of the most requested Ticketmaster "Arts & Theatre Events" for 2007. LEGALLY BLONDE THE MUSICAL received three 2009 Touring Broadway Awards in New York City on May 4, 2009. The show won awards for Best New Musical, Best Production Design and Best Choreography of a Touring Production.
In the fall of 2007, MTV aired LEGALLY BLONDE THE MUSICAL in its entirety to stellar ratings and was subsequently nominated for two 2007-2008 Daytime Emmy Awards.
As on Broadway, Tony Award-winner Jerry Mitchell is the director and choreographer. Music and lyrics are by both Laurence O'Keefe and Nell Benjamin, and the book is by Heather Hach.
LEGALLY BLONDE THE MUSICAL will take you from the sorority house to the halls of justice with Broadway's brightest new heroine (and of course, her chihuahua, Bruiser). The verdict? This much fun shouldn't be legal!
LEGALLY BLONDE THE MUSICAL will be performed at the TIMES UNION CENTER'S MORAN THEATER on January 11-16, 2011 for 8 performances only! Tickets go on sale Sunday, November 7, 2010.
