"I then posted a different video on my account to share a little more about me playing Elle and people were begging me to post something from the show itself," Strong explains. With timing that could only be explained as theatrical in nature, Music Director Gamble uploaded a clip of the show's opening number "Omigod You Guys" that was then put on the lead's TikTok. Transitioning from TikTok to Instagram, the clip revealing Strong as Elle was re-shared on various accounts, including original Broadway cast member Orfeh's personal Instagram and theatre artist Jimmy Larkin-run @letshearitforthechoice that posts various performance moments. "That's really where it blew up."

Garnering nearly 40,000 views in a day on Instagram (@letshearitforthechoice) and 325,000 on TikTok (@ebony.strong), the clip found its way to Jerry Mitchell, the Choreographer and Director of the original Broadway production, who posted a video featuring Strong's vocals to his personal account. "Legally Blonde has always had a beautifully empowering message about looking beyond stereotypes and going out into the world as your truest self," Marketing Manager Justin Spainhour-Roth comments on Mitchell's post via the Woodstock Arts Instagram. "But to see the theatre community rally behind @ebony.strong really brings that message home."

Based on the hit Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer motion picture starring Reese Witherspoon, Legally Blonde The Musical plays its final 3 performances at the Woodstock Arts Theatre in Downtown Woodstock August 27th-29th, 2021.
