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.
