Another review this from the SF Weekly.
This musical stage adaptation of the movie, like, totally rocks

Pink isn't a color one readily associates with the Tenderloin — unless, that is, you count the occasional sight of exposed buttocks and the insides of peoples' eyelids. But the sidewalk at Taylor and Sixth was temporarily transformed into a feeding ground for flamingos a few days ago as ladies (and even a few gentlemen) in fuchsia sweaters and cotton candy kitten heels clicked and clacked their way into the Golden Gate Theatre for the opening-night performance of Legally Blonde: The Musical.
I've been thinking about this as a concept for a musical and it really does lend itself to the genre. The movie and the character were so over-the-top that a musical done well (as it seems this has been) could be a big hit.
