“Leglly Blonde,” the bubblicious Broadway about a Valley Girl at Harvard Law, will graduate to a national tour next year, and Dallas is one of the stops. The musical, co-produced by Dallas Summer Musicals, arrives July 21 and runs through August 9, 2009.
But to get a taste for the show, you don’t have to wait any later than tonight. A laÂ last summer’s NBC reality show “Grease: You’re the One that I Want” â€” which served as an auditioning springboard for the disastrous Broadway revival (currently, peculiarly, nominated for a Tony for best musical revival) â€” MTV launches “Legally Blonde the Musical: The Search for Elle Woods” at 9 p.m. Â The eight-week series follows 10 hopefuls who get to compete to replace Laura Bell Bundy, the show’s current star, in the leading role.
Personally, I want them to hold open auditions for the role of Bruiser. I think my Chihuahua, Popeye, would be a sure thing. Tell me I’m wrong.
