I’ve seen the film a couple of times and when I learned that they’ve turned it into a musical, I hoped that one day it will reach the shores of Sydney and stage here. It took awhile for that to happen and when it did, I resisted the temptation to read reviews and even listen to the soundtrack. Since this show originated from a movie, I wanted to experience the musical with only that knowledge that it was from a movie. I wanted to experience it with raw appreciation and a fresh perspective.
Legally Blonde (The Musical) is a fun and entertaining show that will remind you how great it is to have girlfriends who will always be there to share the highs and lows of your life, get over the man who broke your heart, fall in love again (with the right man this time) and celebrate the uniqueness in you. It’s such a refreshing musical that will leave you a feeling of warmth and positivity plus a certain fondness for the colour Pink 😀 (LOL).
It was my first time to watch a ballet performance and I was so excited at the thought of being inside the theatre and watch a show I’ve never seen before. I went with tweethearts Jo and Pen on Friday night who were all first timers as well. Since the show was at 8pm, we orchestrated an early dinner meet-up with the whole Tweethearts gang at Westfield Sydney.
While I was savouring my macarons and coffee, the Husband started bringing dinner to our table. He had his favourite American Hautedog and Chips from Snag Stand and then a little later, He brought me my Breaded Chicken and Fried Egg Rice from Din Tai Fung.
We had an hour and a half to catch up but it felt like minutes. Ang dami talagang kwento!!! Kulang ang oras. And to think that we all talk fast! LOL. But we’re grateful nonetheless. At least sa maliit na paraan, naisingit ang pagkikita kahit sandali lang.
We marveled at the exquisite beauty of State Theatre when we arrived at a few minutes to 8. It was overwhelming to see exquisite details of their ceilings, walls, chandeliers and statues adorned in every corner. The theatre was old but well-maintained.
