A meringue of a musical comedy, “Legally Blonde” requires those in attendance to leave their brains at the door. However, the upbeat and deceptively complicated music, Martín Céspedes’ delightful I’m-a-pretty-girl choreography, and a talented ensemble of players results in a production that is fun clear down to the follicles.

Beck’s LEGALLY BLONDE THE MUSICAL makes for a delightful evening/afternoon of entertainment. The cast is generally excellent, the script fun, the score good, and the chorography outstanding! Go see this one!To see a full review of this show, read Roy Berko's blog here.
With a convoluted book...that stretches credulity...and...undistinguished pop-inspired score...this featherweight show about female empowerment is geared to young teens of the fairer sex.
The two-and-a-half hour densely packed production...is long and laborious, with occasional rays of sunshine that break through the clouds of this dizzying and saccharine souffle of a musical.

Instead of being a frothy lark, Legally Blonde at Beck seems an overly long exercise in trying to have fun. And that's never as much fun as it should be.
