Legally Blonde

from the Lowestoft Players at the Marina Theatre, Lowestoft

Review published in the Eastern Daily Press, 4 June 2015 and Lowestoft Journal, 5 June 2015

Unafraid to embrace risk and challenge, the Lowestoft Players are staging the East Anglian amateur premiere of the bubble gum, high-energy fun musical Legally Blonde.

Based on the myth of the dumb, ditzy blonde bombshell unable to cope with legal training at Harvard Law School, this musical love-comedy follows Elle, stunningly portrayed by Polly Woodward, as she learns that the law can help others.

She is the outsider who shakes up a stuffy establishment, in love with the creep (Lewis Caplin) and unaware of her true destiny (Tom Guttridge) till the explosion of dancing, singing energy that is the finale.

Yes, individual roles impress, but as always with the award-winning Players, it’s the might of their ensemble that stuns. From outstanding choreography of both cast and impressive stage furniture, singing and dancing to the incredible support behind scenes, they provide compelling entertainment.

Legally Blonde is a high energy, feel-good show from start to finish, not taking itself too seriously. It will please the Players’ traditional fans and draw a new generation of lovers of quality musical theatre.
