Legally Blonde

When designing Legally Blonde, one of the biggest challenges was all of the locations in which the play takes place. One of the things we tried to do was find similarities between all of the settings. We found that the Greek Temple was an image that appears often throughout the story, representing everything from the Delta Nu sorority house, buildings at Harvard, and the courtroom. On a more conceptual level, we also thought of the Greek Temple representing the establishment and the patriarchy that Elle is constantly fighting throughout the progression of the show. The plain white pediment and columns are lit with pink in moments when Elle has her big moments (such as getting into Harvard and receiving Callahan’s internship.)
