If you haven't seen it yet, better go and check it out soon!

Legally Blonde the musical is ending its run on Broadway on October 19th.

It has been playing at the Palace Theatre since April 29, 2007 and will have played 30 previews and 595 regular performances upon closing.

The show has had problems recently getting people to fill those seats, this despite the recent MTV show looking for the next Elle Woods.

Sources say as of late its been playing to houses that are 60% full in a theater with almost 1,700 seats.

Ouch!

The first national tour of Legally Blonde kicked off on September 23.

Hope the show's doing better on the road!

    60% is still pretty good, actually. Why don't they just cut back on the number of performances, rather than canning it altogether?



  16. 16

    GOOD! this was the dumbest play idea EVER!



  17. 17

    i just saw it last month, it was really good!

    umm, who really cares? Broadway shows come and go. Some close after the first night. running over a year, investors probably made their money back. Right now on Broadway, they have some of the lamest shows, including this one, and seats cost a fortune. AND, these 2 things you posted aren't breaking news….get to work or hire someone to troll the net for you

    I just saw this show and it was great, even my boyfriend liked it! It's so fun and exciting, I agree they should just cut back on the number of shows and not stop it all together. I'm glad I got to see it before it was canned!

    it just isn't the same without laura bell bundy. i'm not surprised.

    The worst Broadway show ever…boring as hell. Saw it on MTV, thank GOD we didn't buy tickets!! The acting was atrocious and you would think MTV would put the best on TV…oh wait…MTV doesn't put the best of anything on their channel…

    oh no :(

    laura bell never should have left!!!



  24. 24

    I saw it. it sucked. go see something better like wicked

    I went to see it a few weeks ago and I thought it was pretty good, wasn't expecting much but was pleasantly surprised by how funny it was and the music was pretty good too. Bailey did a good job, it takes a lot to be on Broadway.

    don't be too quick to judge. I was more than skeptical of LB at first, but it managed to win me over completely and it kills to see the show close … when it's only been on for just over a year.

    I would say "see it while you can" but Bailey Hanks is nothing compared to Laura Bell Bundy… it's just not the same.

    By the way, MTV- way to take a great thing and market it to death.



  27. 27

    Laura Bell never should have left. Bailey's cute but nothing compared to Laura.

    Sad but it was going to happen eventually.



  28. 28

    Half the people bashing the show probably never saw it. I thought the idea was dumb too but when I saw it I was actually quite impressed. It's a really cute and fun show. However, I expected this to happen. I knew the second Laura left the sales would go down. Laura is freakin amazing. Bailey is just…ok.

    GO SEE [TITLE OF SHOW]!

    It's in danger of closing as well, and is the funniest show that you can see on Broadway. It has such a powerful message, and is totally original. You won't regret it!
