"Omigod, You Guys!"

Look what I'm seeing tonight.


You'd think that, with my loathing - - my "unadulterated loathing" - - of that other show with a little too much pink for my taste (Wicked), that I would not want to see this theatrical piece of pop confection.

But I do. 

I've heard good things from friends who have seen the show and I watched a few episodes of Legally Blonde - The Musical: The Search for Elle Woods...

...which was, in a sea of train wrecks masquerading as reality shows, the biggest train wreck of them all... and I loved every second of it...

...so, I'm really looking forward to tonight.

And Amy and I will be podcasting after the show for the Windy City Queercast

Because, musical theatre is already pretty queer, but this opening number would make Rip Taylor say, "Now, THAT'S faggy."

Oh, my Gawd, that's a lot of squealing pink. I hope you enjoy it. I really like the movie, but I'm not sure I could sit through that much squealing, singing pink.

I'm SO jealous.
I loved every minute of it when I saw it in New York, and I watched it when it was on MTV, AND I was completely addicted to the reality show.
When I saw it in NYC, I saw the understudy ( Becky Gulsvig) who is Elle on tour...I thought she was pretty great.
Have fun!!!

I love that you used Rip Taylor as a punchline. Palm Springs - HELLO!

I'm going tomorrow night...and the 23rd. Loathe to admit, I'm kind of a fan of this show. It's so counter-intuitive to what I think I know about myself!

Also: "So Much Better" is one of the best first act closing numbers I can think of (when sung well). Sue me.
