Swarm of Elle Woodses invades NYC
But then, maybe it only makes sense as the shows that make it to Broadway are increasingly inspired commercially successful cartoons and films. Ahem, "The Little Mermaid."
Which brings us to the latest in this vein: MTV's "Legally Blonde The Musical: The Seach for Elle Woods."
The sugary musical opened to so-so reviews the first time with star Laura Bell Bundy. But still, she's a pro with shine and polish. We're not so sure B-lister t Haylie Duff, host of the search show to find a new leading lady, can do much more.
The show starts June 2 on MTV. But you can get a sneak preview of the contestants in all their frou-frou glory today as they parade around the city in a pink double-decker bus.
A preview of the Duff delights coming soon to a cable channel near you:
