‘LB the Musical’ is the fabulously fun stage adaptation of the 2000s cult classic film of the same name. With a star studded OBC (Original Broadway Cast) including Laura Bell Bundy, Orfeh, Christian Borle, Kate Shindle and Nikki Snelson, it quickly became a fan favourite and a theatre classic! This musical is an action-packed masterpiece, and the lead role of Elle Woods is notorious for being one of the most difficult female roles in musical theatre history which even lead to 2008 reality tv show ‘The Search For Elle Woods’.
The story of ‘LB’ follows Elle Woods, a bubbly, blonde, pink-loving sorority sister, as she tackles stereotypes and scandals in pursuit of her goals. After following her ex-boyfriend to Harvard, the prestigious law school, she finds her true passion. But it isn’t easy… Can she face opposition, peer struggles, tough trials, mean-spirited expectations and self-doubt to become the best? Will she prove herself to the world?
The quote written on this pin is a standout quote from one of the first songs that appears in the show, ‘What You Want’. This song is Elle’s journey from being sad about her breakup, to deciding to follow him to Harvard so she can win him back, and finally being accepted into the school. During the “deciding to enroll” portion of this song, Elle sings the phrase “I’ll meet you there at Harvard with a book in my hand. Big sturdy book. Big wordy book. Full of words I’ll understand”, and what better design than a big pink book with many pink bookmarks!
