My apologies if there is already a thread on this topic, I couldn't seem to find it. Was anyone at the Legally Blonde tour last night? I looked around on fb/twitter and am quite suprised at the lack of buzz to be honest.  What did people think of the show on tour?

Few names I like and didn't know were involved there! I'm tempted to try and catch the tour at some point.

There's no Delta Nu house I do believe - I'll be interested to see how it works when I go on Thursday.

I don't actually know - but the general rules for LB productions are:

Margot is an Elle u/s
Aaron is 1st u/s for Emmett
Pforzheimer is 1st u/s for Warner
Mom is 1st u/s for Paulette
Dad is 1st u/s for Callahan
Saleswoman/Judge is 1st u/s for Pilar

The rest of the u/s roles change round

Thanks for that!

And I believe 'gabby/stenographer' is 2nd u/s for elle if I'm right? :)
