Legally Blonde (The Musical): In Manila June 25 – July 18, 2010
Elle Woods is coming to Manila! LEGALLY BLONDE The Musical, based on the hit film starring Reese Witherspoon, will star Nikki Gil when it premieres in Manila from June 25 – July 18, 2010 at the Meralco Theatre. TV and recording artist, Nikki Gil was selected by Atlantis Productions to take on the lead role of Elle Woods in the fun family musical. Nikki, who has has been preparing for the role with vocal and dance class for close to a year says, “I’m very excited to have been chosen to play Elle Woods! It’s a challenge in terms of stamina and vocal preparation so I really have to prepare for it!
In LEGALLY BLONDE The Musical, sorority star Elle Woods doesn’t take “no” for an answer. So when her boyfriend dumps her for someone “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.
LEGALLY BLONDE The Musical will take audiences 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!
Joining Nikki in the all-star cast are Nyoy Volante, Guji Lorenzana, Jett Pangan, Geneva Cruz, Calvin Millado, Cris Vollonco and Jinky Llamanzares. It is Directed by Chari Arespacochaga, Choreography by Cecille Martinez, Set Design by Mio Infante, Lighting Design by Jonsy Reyes, Musical Direction by Beth Martin and Costumes provided by SM Department Stores.
