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.
