DreamWrights Center for Community Arts to Present Teen Musical LEGALLY BLONDE
by BWW News Desk - Jun 13, 2016

This summer, DreamWrights will be showcasing its teen musical, Legally Blonde, complete with a Greek chorus. But, this is definitely not a Greek chorus like anything Aristotle would recognize. This Greek chorus will be made up of three leading sorority girls:  Margot, Serena, and Pilar, who will be on stage throughout the entire show, and only visible to the main character, Elle Woods. Director Nic Ecker explains, "Traditionally these characters appear on stage briefly throughout the musical. For this production, I'm going to change things up by having them interacting with the action on stage, with their sole purpose to help Elle become a lawyer.  It's an interesting concept that, to my knowledge, hasn't been done in this way before. I am looking forward to these ancient Greek ideas coming to life in this very modern musical." (more...)
