Washington Post - Somewhat Recommended

"...“Legally Blonde,” the antsy, noisy musical, lacks the winning personality of “Legally Blonde,” the 2001 movie with Reese Witherspoon as fashionista Elle Woods, blithely racking up style points as she ditches a bad boyfriend and conquers Harvard Law. The Keegan Theatre’s new staging of the 2007 Broadway adaptation throws a lot of energy into big pop numbers and workout-driven dances, but the high-strung show can’t help coming across like a chemical accident that won’t stop foaming."

"...Legally Blonde’s music, by Laurence O’Keefe and Nell Benjamin, while infectious and useful in supporting the movement, does not contain any songs clamoring for entrance into the show tune hall of fame. The book, by Heather Hach, provides both obvious and subtle comic moments (my personal favorite being a reference by a department store saleswoman to a fragrance named “Subtext”) that add to the blend, well-integrated and paced under the direction of Ricky Drummond, that kept the audience smiling, laughing, and cheering throughout the evening."

"...Heather Hach's book for the stage version smartly modifies some of the more troubling plot points, fleshes out several of the female characters and their interpersonal relationships and literally calls out the assumptions that might make modern women cringe. At one point, a (delightfully added) "Greek" chorus of women proclaims to the heavens in mock joy, "now that a man chose you, your life begins today!""
