This year, the season kicks off with “Legally Blonde”, based on the popular 2001

Warner. Throughout the show, no one has faith in Elle Woods, but she manages
to surprise them when she defies expectations while staying true to herself.

Featuring an infectious pop score by Laurence O’Keefe (“Heathers,” “Batboy: The
Musical”) and Nell Benjamin, and an effervescent book by Heather Hach, his
crowd-pleasing show opens June 29, and runs Thursday through
