Dumped by her boyfriend, whose political ambitions seem to demand "less of a Marilyn, more of a Jackie," Woods enrolls at Harvard Law to win back his heart. However, through hard work and determination, she manages to excel in her studies and discover a talent she never knew she had. The story is partially based on Amanda Brown’s own experiences at Stanford Law School. Audiences in Philadelphia can catch a performance of Legally Blonde whenever there’s a new production in town.
Going BlondeShortly after the release of the novel, Legally Blonde was popularized by the hit film starring Reese Witherspoon, Luke Wilson and Selma Blair. Sensing the story’s potential as a musical, the producers hired book writer Heather Hach, whose previous credits include Freaky Friday and Caroline in the City, and the husband and wife songwriting team Nell Benjamin and Laurence O’Keefe to create a stage adaptation. After a short tryout period in San Francisco, Legally Blonde premiered at the Palace Theatre April 29, 2007.

Laura Bell Bundy, Christian Borle and Orfeh all received nominations for their acting.
