“I may be in love but im not stupid”
To the tune of ‘Legally Blonde’
Now it’s gone to the East Midlands
To Leicester’s Curve, and just go.
Nikolai Foster’s directing it,
He’s changed some things that you may approve
Others are not so successful
But what do I know?
Lucie Jones good, Lucie Jones strong
Lucie Jones following on
Icons like this, Sheridan Smith, Reese Witherspooooon
Her Elle Woods is a fun surprise
You can see it in her eyes
That’s fine with me,
should make you see Legally Blonde
Jon Robyns is a gorgeous Emmett
Danny Mac makes Warner seem ok
They make their characters so charming
You’ll fall for them, no problem / Well what’s the issue?
Its meant to be kinda feminist / It is in its way
Doesn’t show through though they try their best / More of a fairytale
And attitudes t’wards sexuality
Are not ok
What about fun?
Is it ok if its fun?
It means well, this I know
But perhaps, if you don’t take it to heart
You’ll find its humour pretty smart
You may find it is so
Cause you know that its frothy and fuuuun
Yes its bright pink, sometimes bizarre
Tupele Dorgu’s a star
Nick Winston’s cho-, reography
Fills the stage well
‘What You Want’s’ rap, now Bollywood,
doesn’t quite work all the same
That said I feel, this musical, is charming regardless of all
It’s not up to me
If you go and see
European or gay.
But I think maybe
You should go and see
Running time: 2 hours 25 minutes (with interval)
Booking until 14th May
NB: I’ve touched on it just lightly here but I do have to say that it was the first time in seeing the show umpteen times, that I felt queasy about its LGBT issues. Quite why that is I couldn’t really say but I’m just being honest
