“LEGALLY BLONDE THE MUSICAL”
PRESENTED IN THE AMATURO THEATRE
AT BROWARD CENTER
Elle Woods, (Reese Witherspoon) has it all. She wants nothing more than to be Mrs. Warner Huntington. But there is one thing stopping him (Matthew Davis) from proposing: She is too blonde. Elle rallies all of her resources and gets into Harvard, determined to win him back. Like its main character, “Legally Blonde: The Musical” has it all. It’s cute, catchy and will teach you valuable life lessons-like how to properly bend ...and snap!
This seriously sweet song-and-dance sensation is the story of sorority-sister-turned-law-student Elle Woods. One glance at her all-pink wardrobe and her Chihuahua Bruiser, and you know this girl is a little bit extra in everything she does.
So its no surprise that when she’s dumped by her Ivy League boyfriend, she goes all out to win him back. Her OTT plan includes putting down her credit cards, picking up the books and setting out to go where no Delta Nu has gone before: Harvard Law.
Slow Burn Theatre Co. presents this fabulously fun international award-winning musical based on the adored movie.

"HAMILTON" THE MOST POPULAR SHOW
EVERY ONE WANTS TO SEE IS
NOW AT THE BROWARD CENTER
"Hamilton," an American Musical, sung and rapped through music is about the life of American Founding father Alexander Hamilton, with music, lyrics, and book by Lin-Manuel Miranda, inspired by the 2004 biography of Alexander Hamilton written by Ron Chernow.
The show is an achievement of historical and cultural reimagining. The costumes and set reflect the period, with velvet frock coats and knee britches.
The show revolves around the life of Alexander Hamilton’s many achievements as a military hero and aide to George Washington, as co-author of the Federalist Papers which secured the ratification of the Constitution, and as the first Secretary of the Treasury and much more.
Hamilton is a story about America, and the most beautiful thing about it is ....it's told by such a diverse cast with such diverse styles of music,"according to Renee Elise Goldberry who played Angelica Schuyler.
Although Hamilton was based on historical events and people, Miranda did use some dramatic licence in retelling the story. For example while Angelica did have a strong relationship with Hamilton, it was exaggerated in the show.
In 2015, the U. S. Department of the Treasury announced a redesign of the $10 bill, with plans to replace Hamilton with a then-undecided woman from American history. Because of Hamilton's surging popularity, almost exclusively due to the musical, the United States Treasury Secretary, Jack Lew, reversed the plans to replace Hamilton's portrait.
Hamilton has been awarded almost every award possible, in every category that has ever been awarded for a musical, leaving audiences clamoring for tickets.
Tickets are now available from $78 to $198, and up, at the Broward Center, through Ticketmaster. There is a 4 ticket limit. Performances are in the Au-Rene Theatre, now on stage through January 20, 2019. For all other information call the box office at 954-462-0222, located at 201 S.W. Fifth Avenue, Fort Lauderdale. Group sales call 954-660-6307. *Show contains strong language. Not for children.
