A hit even before press night, this musical version of the 2001 film is as
cheerfully chirpy as Californian sorority queen Elle Woods, who sets out to
prove that blondes have brains.

It’s as insubstantial as candyfloss, but is lots of fun with Sheridan Smith
playing a perky Elle.

Jill Halfpenny impresses as a beautician, Alex Gaumond’s
reliable Emmet scrubs up a treat and the Chihuahua performs like a pro.
