Legally Blonde, the musical now playing at Tacoma Musical Playhouse, is a high-energy song-and-dance fest replete with silly jokes from sorority girls and scheming law students. Based on the film starring Reese Witherspoon, its the story of Elle Woods (Leah Wickstrom), a ditzy blonde who goes to Harvard Law to recapture the love of her boyfriend.

TLT's production is more than just a play; it is an historic event for Tacoma. It was adapted from the Amy Tan book by David Hsieh, founding artistic director for ReAct Theatre in Seattle, where it was first performed. This production, like the original, is directed by Hsieh and features at least two of the original actors. It is only the second time it has been performed anywhere.

Like other disturbing literary properties such as Lord of the Flies and The Crucible, "The Children's Hour" is about the harm caused by a young sociopath. Because of subject matter that should no longer be controversial, it is seldom performed by community theaters. Kudos to Lakewood Playhouse for bringing it here, and to the cast and crew for tackling such an intense drama.
