Part One: Legally Blonde The Musical
We’ll talk about making a hit movie into a Broadway production and then taking it on a national tour. Cast members from the national tour of Legally Blonde and the producer joins us. They say the musical is not just fun, perky and pink but that it has a positive message for teens.
