Nominated for 7 Tony Awards and winner of Best Musical (Olivier Awards), this all-singing, all-dancing romantic comedy is based on the novel by Amanda Brown. The show’s core message, be true to yourself, is especially relevant to StarStruck’s youth audience, but also resonates with seasoned theatre-goers. Fans of the 2001 movie starring Reese Witherspoon will recognize the plot: Sorority president Elle Woods doesn’t take “no” for an answer. So when her boyfriend dumps her for someone “serious,” Elle puts down the credit card, hits the books, and sets out to go where no Delta Nu has gone before: Harvard Law School. Along the way, she learns it’s so much better to be smart.
