Delta Nu sorority sister Elle Woods has aced college and is now ready to get started on her happily ever after with dreamy boyfriend, Warner. But when Warner tells Elle he needs someone "more serious" now that he's off to Harvard Law School, she eventually follows him to prove she can be serious. What she ends up gaining from law school is a belief in herself and the realization that she's more than just another pretty blonde. Legally Blonde
is a musical juggernaut thanks to its compelling central argument: Anyone, even the pretty "it" girl, can be greater than they think possible if they work for it. The Washington University Performing Arts Department presents Legally Blonde
with an entirely age-appropriate cast. Performances are at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday (October 25 to November 2) at Washington University's Edison Theatre (6445 Forsyth Boulevard; www.edisontheatre.wustl.edu
). Tickets are $15 to $20.
