Every year Theatre Under the Stars (TUTS) puts on two musicals at the Malkin Bowl – an amazing outdoor theatre in Stanley Park. We’re regulars, having seen every show for the past 5 years. Last night we got to watch the opening night performance of Legally Blonde – the Musical.
I’ve never seen the movie, but I wasn’t expecting much from the musical. Well, I was blown away. It was funny, sexy, and clever. Easily the best TUTS musical I’ve seen in the past 3 years (probably since Joseph in 2010) and by far the sexiest. The “Gay or European” song was hilarious and “Whipped Into Shape” showed off some impressive jumping rope choreography while singing.
It is well worth checking out. There’s no better place to be on a warm summer evening. And it’s some of the most affordable entertainment in Vancouver – tickets are between $29 and $44. We’ll be back to see TUTS other show, “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” in a few weeks.
I play Elle Woods in this TUTS production of Legally Blonde and I just wanted to let you know how thrilled I was to see Canadian Veggie review our show and I am a Canadian veggie myself. Lol. I’m glad you enjoyed the show. Come back and see us again, I would love to say hi.
Have a totally awesome day!
OMG! Another vegetarian. That explains why you’re so talented. You rocked opening night.
We went to see How to Succeed in Business on Monday night. It was good and well-acted, but not nearly as memorable as Legally Blonde. The TUTS season ends this weekend for anyone hoping to catch either show.
