Musicals Week: 2

Finished off musicals week with Legally Blonde. [I will brook no eye-rolling!] The whole family this time. Light entertainment, really well done and thoroughly enjoyable. Some great performances and the cast seemed to be having a lot of fun. Some bigger laughs than I expected. The British audience got a special kick out of the Irish mythologizing by the hairdresser character, and the exuberant "is he gay? or european?" brought down the house.

On a related note, I'm trying to figure out why it is that I can't stand Times Square but a tourist-soaked West End on a warm spring night doesn't bother me in the least.
