    Re: "Legally Blonde The Musical" on MTV

    I loved the musical. I wish I was closer to NYC that I could see it live. The music is very catchy, and I thought the sets, costumes, and acting were all great and fit the theme of the show. I could see it appealing more to the younger crowd, which broadway needs sometimes, but I enjoyed it overall.

    Not my cup of tea either. This show had zero appeal to me on stage and on TV. I just thought it was cool that MTV, of all networks, broadcast a Broadway show that is still running.

    It fits their demographic though. It seems that a handful of shows on MTV now are geared to females aged 12-18, which "Legally Blonde: The Musical" is also going for.

    The audience IS distracting on the broadcast. MTV taped the show over a few days and the audience shots are culled from an invited audience. People invited to the show had to be of a certain (young) age and wear a pink shirt to the taping. Sorry I can't link it, because it's gone, but Broadway.com and Playbill.com had articles about how to get into the taping.

    Anyway, as I stated earlier this show isn't for me. It's still saved on my DVR but I only made it through two commercial breaks before stopping the show. It's simply, in my opinion only, not a good musical.

    MTV is going to air Legally Blonde: The Musical again on Thanksgiving, twice.

    2pm
    9pm

    Those times are Arizona, so I think PT would be 1pm and 8pm

    The people from MTV needed to go... those girls in their faux maternity clothes were just way too annoying.

    As for the show... seeing it in person is always the best idea. However, I don't get to go to live shows like others do, so this is the best I can do.

    I'm not very familiar with the movie. I saw about the last 3/4 of the sequel and was familiar with what it was about, but that's about it. However, I rather enjoyed the music and such. It definitely seemed a bit hurried at points, but the musical numbers were enjoyable. And I have trouble getting "Oh My God" out of my head!

    Not my favorite musical, but it was decent enough.

    I would've rather them do it to Young Frankenstein so that I could see it ASAP.

    The girl that played Paulette, hated her voice but I liked her better than Jennifer Coolidge. I don't get the bend and snap. It's pointing to your boobs in a bad way. But I did like the guy who played Emmet. The "My name!" song I liked.

    That said it reminded me of "Footloose" on Broadway.

    I recorded it but haven't watched it yet. The only impression I got from yesterday's preview was that the girl playing Elle was trying way too hard to be Reese Witherspoon instead of putting her own spin on the character.

    I started watching it and got hooked. It's cute. Then my son wanted to play videogames so I recorded the rest. Probably won't get to see the rest until next week, but the numbers that I did see were well done, the singers talented and the dancing energetic. I've never seen the movie, so maybe that plays a part in my liking the musical but I can't wait to watch the rest.

    I'm jealous about the Little Mermaid! Fun!

    As for more on Legally Blonde - I just don't think the jokes went over quite as well as they did in the movie. It doesn't have the same witty charm.

    I actually left during the court scene and missed the end. Don't think it's my type of play. But, in other Broadway related news, I got my tickets to the Little Mermaid today for my Theater Class!

    I have a feeling that MTV wants them to act like that too, just to drive up the excitement, but still doesn't fit.

    yes i agree, not very classy. I've always seen broadway as a sorta of upper- class classy kind of event, and this doesnt fit the mold.
    which is ok, because im sure lots of people would enjoy it, but its not really my kinda of show.

    Hope they show it sometime when I can see it, even if I'm hearing it's not so good )
