Ithaca College Theatre’s fall musical is “Legally Blonde,” with book by Heather Hach, and music and lyrics by Laurence O’Keefe and Nell Benjamin. There will be a free talk-back presentation following the Saturday, Nov. 10 2 pm matinee in Dillingham Center's Hoerner Theater.
The talk-back is an opportunity for the audience to ask questions and gain insight into the play’s themes. The “Legally Blonde” talkback presentation includes a panel of the show’s director professor Greg Bostwick and stage manager, Paula Clarkson '13. Some topics that will be discussed include working with live animals in a performance environment, as well as discussing double casting the role of Elle Woods.
Based on the film of the same title, “Legally Blonde” is the story of sorority sister Elle Woods, who gets dumped by her boyfriend, who thinks she’s not “serious.” She follows him to Harvard Law School to show him just how serious she can be and winds up learning that there’s much more to life than just being pretty in pink.
