Nikki Gil to star in Legally Blonde, The Musical

Elle Woods is coming to Manila in “Legally Blonde, The Musical,” based on the hit film starring Reese Witherspoon.

Atlantis Productions is mounting the musical in June 2010, with TV and recording artist Nikki Gil headlining the show.

“I’m very excited to have been chosen to play Elle Woods,” says Gil. “It’s a challenge in terms of stamina and vocal preparation so I really have to prepare for it.”

Simone Genatt, Chairman of Broadway Asia Company who produced “Legally Blonde” in New York and licensed the production to Atlantis, says, “Broadway Asia Company is thrilled to be working once again with Atlantis Productions on the upcoming performances of the Broadway hit musical ‘Legally Blonde.’ With the tremendous star power of Nikki Gil heading a talented cast of local performers, we feel very confident that ‘Legally Blonde’ will be very successful in the hands of Atlantis Productions.”

She also reveals, “The Broadway touring production of ‘Legally Blonde’ garnered all the touring Broadway awards this season including Best New Touring Musical, Best Design and Best Music, and is confirmed to continue touring the United States for another two years of bookings. We look forward to the success of the Manila performances with Atlantis Productions.”

“Legally Blonde, The Musical,” opens June 2010 at Meralco Theater, and will be directed by Chari Arespacochaga.

Fundraising and showbuying opportunities for “Legally Blonde” are now available. Call Atlantis Productions 8927078 or 8401187.

Ito na naman ang atlantis. After the palpak spring awakening, gagawa ng material na so unapt for local actors and directors. Nikki Gil as Elle Woods, Ano ba iyan. This material is so americana. As american as apple pie. Stop this na. ang dami namang makokopya sa broadway na magandang material, ito pa. eh sa broadway nga nilambast ito. parang wala namang taste itong board ng atlantis. mag iimport na nga lang, iyung patapon pa from broadway.

hindi naman nilait, sinabi lang na its too americana, and besides, pangit naman talaga iyong material. sige, maghanap ka ng magandang review na pinuri ang material ha.

the show is apparently not for people who take "the material," or for that matter, themselves, too seriously. the musical is meant to entertain. and i was entertained. most audiences who see it are entertained. and by that standard, it's a resounding success. and the thought that that success might just be replicated by a local cast is exciting.

besides, how can you say that this is too "americana" to be performed by a local cast when rehearsals haven't even started yet? tingnan muna. baka naman mag-work. wag kaagad i-judge.

Ano ba namang hindi americana, eh tingnan mo nga iyong title, legally blonde. and based pa sa film na legally blonde. ikaw kaya, iresearch mo ito sa broadway, talaga namang palpak ang material nito.
