One of the big things that happened over spring break was Legally Blonde began previews on Broadway. Some friends of mine saw it, and were showing me a photo of Laura Bell Bundy and their daughter at the stage door from last Thursday night. Tres cool.
Anyway, Blonde and Bundy have been ringing up my Google and Nexis alerts a bunch lately. So, I'm compiling links for some good pieces on the show and our hometown star for a little Bundy-Blonde reader:
A few weeks ago, we raved about Raven Snook's blogging on You're the One That I Want, the Grease reality series. Well, she has a great little write-up on Laura Bell in Time Out New York. Toward the top of the piece, Laura has a some interesting comments about coming home to Kentucky for high school while her understudies in Ruthless, Britney Spears and Natalie Portman, became marquee names.
Laura and Blonde director Jerry Mitchell have an entertaining conversation in Next Magazine -- mind you, the language does get a tad risque.
New York Post columnist Michael Riedel identifies Laura as the "pink" horse stalking Grey Gardens star Christine Ebersole for the Tony for best performance by an actress in a musical.
The NYC theater critics don't weigh in on Blonde until the official opening, April 29. But that doesn't stop bloggers from weighing in. Do you think Spenc in the City is impressed?
We'll keep an eye peeled for more LBB stuff, and we'll be in NYC for opening weekend, so stay tuned.
