Elle Woods has it all. But when her boyfriend dumps her for someone “serious”, she follows him to Harvard Law School to win him back. With a heart of gold and a mane to match, this sorority girl proves that being true to yourself never goes out of style. Based on the 2001 film of the same name, this all-singing, all-dancing, feel good musical comedy is one “Elle of a show”!
