Thanks to MTV (yeah, it's weird saying that), we got to see Legally Blonde - the musical!

As you might expect, the show is a bit silly and light on substance. But there are some really great songs (good luck getting "Ohmigod You Guys" and "What You Want" out of your head anytime soon). And it is of course high energy, plowing all the way to the finale. There is also one downright hilarious moment as Elle is visited by her own Greek chorus...of a different kind.

Great fun, and worth seeing on Broadway, or checking out the soundtrack. Enjoy!

Did you guys get up to NYC again? I'm so jealous! I don't think I'm going to make it up soon, so that would make this the first year since 2003 that I haven't gone... I'll have to live vicariously through you guys!

Side note - do you know if Spelling Bee is sold out here in DC? I should investigate that. I would still like to see the show...

Don't know about Spelling Bee...but it is a great show.

We didn't get to NYC to see this...haven't been up for a few months.

Silly show this one...It's taken me a few times to get into it, but it is fun...including the "Is he gay or European" song.

Stef, I don't think you'll have a problem getting tickets for SPELLING BEE in DC.

I LOVE LEGALLY BLONDE! It's total entertainment. One of those shows that I went in in kind of a crummy mood, but left smiling and humming - isn't that what it's all about? Plus, when I was in Spain on my own there were so many times when I thought to myself OH MY GOD, OH MY GOD YOU GUYS and that's impressive

Well, I've had to financially prioritize... I think I'm going to work on going to Spamalot around Christmas here in DC, rather than Spelling Bee. But who knows, maybe I'll have a moment of weakness and get tickets to both. Anyone wanna join me? :-)
