The second half of the 2010 Theater Season in Manila is getting exciting. Nikki Gil (of Coke commercial fame) plays the role of Elle Woods in Legally Blonde The Musical in Manila! The show is an adaptation of the Hollywood movie starring Reese Witherspoon. In case you haven’t watched the film, the story is basically about Elle Woods’ transformation from a frivolous sorority star to a Harvard Law student as she pursues the love of her life who dumped her for a more “serious” girl.
The show is bound to be fun as it features a star-studded cast:
- Nyoy Volante (known for his acoustic performances) – coming from a convincing performance as Seaweed J. Stubbs in Hairspray. This time around, he plays a smart teaching assistant, Emmett Forrest, who becomes Elle Wood’s ally.
- Jett Pangan (iconic rock star) – coming from a Spring Awakening performance that we missed. 🙁 He plays Professor Callahan in Legally Blonde.
- Cris Villonco (our favorite) – coming from a hilarious Romeo and Bernadette performance. She plays Vivienne Kensington, the “serious” girl.
Legally Blonde in the US is currently on tour after a successful Broadway run. It got a lot of awards, including Best New Touring Musical, Best Design and Best Music. It will continue to tour around the US for another two years to sold-out bookings.
Finally, it is going to be staged in Manila with no other than Chari Arespacochaga directing the show! Galing! 🙂

Hi Anton! Jenyh here. Thanks so much for posting this. We will definitely watch the musical with you guys. I’ll email Rache once we get to deposit our payment for the tickets. We also enjoyed watching the Google video of its Broadway version and I shared it to my friends as a mother’s day gift! Hope they will also be encouraged to watch it here and buy the tickets from you too! See you soon at the UTT! God bless! =)
i loved how laura bell bundy played elle. wish nikki will bring justice to the role. i heard gretchen b. will play Brooke Wyndham. hehehe. that’ll be something interesting to watch. 🙂
Gretchen B.in a musical play? hmmn, interesting…
A really nice restaurant in Boracay Is OLe in d’mall. Don’t take my word for it, try it yourself and you will see. I think you will be pleasantly surprised. Really good food.
Hi Anton, this is Michelle (July 3, 2pm showbuyer). Thanks for posting this. You’re really helping all the showbuyers get the word out. Just wanted to let your readers know that we’re offering discounted tickets as well. Thanks again and more power to OAP. 🙂
You're welcome, Michelle!
hi anton! strangely enough i read it on wikipedia under 2010 philippine tour. i hope she has the stamina to sing while skipping rope. 🙂
What does show buyers mean? Does this mean the whole show for June 25, 2010 will be closed for Metrobank employees, chairman and stock holders only?
I’m planning to watch in on the opening night.
Enlighten me, please. 🙂
A show buyer bought the entire show and they are the ones selling it through their own network. For example, for OAP we sell the opening Saturday matinee show via the blog.

Are there still tickets available (i.e. loge center #s 224 and 225)?
Yes meron pa 🙂 I'll check the actual seat numbers,
Yes, please. Will wait for your reply.
Hi Anton, would you know if the musical is still running? I could not find anything on other show dates. Thanks!
