Only One Week To Go

After about 456 days and what must be well over 300 shows the Legally Blonde tour comes to an end next Saturday October 6th.

Over the course of those 65 weeks I've managed to see the show about 12 times - I've lost count if the truth be known - and those would be some of the best nights out I've had in the last 17 month's.

Luckily I have tickets to see this fantastic cast 3 more times before the curtain falls for the final time, one of which is for what is sure to be an emotional night next Saturday.

I've been a big fan of Legally Blonde since I first saw Sheridan Smith at the Savoy Theatre nearly 3 years ago. Susan McFadden proved to be an equally fantastic leading lady but I had my doubts that a touring version would reach the same high standards, particularly with a relatively unknown 23 year old taking on the role of Elle Woods.

I needn't have worried. Not only was the touring version every bit as good as its west end counterpart, the relatively unknown 23 year old proved to be Faye Brookes, the best Elle Woods EVER!

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank @ElleWoodsOnTour Faye Brookes for so many magical LB memories and for making the first Legally Blonde UK tour the best show on earth.


  1. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea
    shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said
    "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
