There won’t be any spoilers in this review because it is best to watch Legally Blonde The Musical without knowing what would happen beforehand. I was laughing almost non-stop throughout the show (and even after the show) with my wife — I can’t wait to watch it again this Saturday.
The supporting cast was AWESOME! Jett Pangan, Geneva Cruz, Calvin Millado, Joel Trinidad, Jinky Llamanzares and Felix Rivera all delivered. We also loved the Greek Chorus and Delta NU girls. 🙂 However, Guji Lorenzana and Cris Villonco’s performances were a bit tame; and Nyoy Volante and Nikki Gil did not have that much chemistry at all (maybe because of the height factor?)
Nikki was a bit tentative at the start, but she started to get her groove on after the Harvard scene. She still needs to internalize the role fully. There were flashes of brilliant performances, though, especially when she dances.
One thing they can improve on is the wireless mic/sound system. The sounds were choppy, which got kind of annoying. I do hope they fix it before opening day. The first performance was not as stellar as it could have been just because we could not hear the voices of some of the Delta NU girls.
Some of the memorable performances for me were:
Nikki Gil’s cheerleading dance in What You Want
Jett Pangan’s Blood in the Water
Greek Chorus’ Positive
Jinky Llamanzares’ Ireland
Geneva Cruz’ Whipped into Shape
Bend and Snap 🙂
There! Right There!
Half of the crowd gave a standing ovation to Nikki Gil during last night’s Final Dress Rehearsal performance. The show is great, and it can be as awesome as RENT and Avenue Q. After all, It is a feel-good, funny musical with a lot of girl power.
Let’s compare notes. Feel free to share your own review in the comments section. 🙂
Live an Awesome Life,
P.S. Bring a jacket because it is a bit cold in the Meralco Theater. Bring an umbrella too because, when it rains, you need it to get to your car in the open parking space.
