A lot of the people who purchase tickets for our shows have never been to Broadway show before. Our job is to make it an easy and pleasant experience so they will come back. LEGALLY BLONDE is on pre-sale today to the Broadway In Chicago Club Corporate members. Of course, groups have been booking for awhile. We just had a call from someone who wondered what LEGALLY BLIND was about. At this point you don’t want to embarrass the caller and say, “BLONDE…not blind!” So the group sales agent tried to work around the answer – “Did you see the movie with Reese Whitherspoon? No? Well, did you happen to catch the reality TV show that featured several young BLONDEwomen auditioning for the lead? No? You could check out the Broadway In Chicago website.”Finally the agent said “I think you misunderstood the name of the show. It’s LEGALLY BLONDE not LEGALLY BLIND.” The woman was happy to hear that and indeed had heard of LEGALLY BLONDE. She booked a group of 20 for her company and is calling her daughter’s school to let them know about the $14.50 student group discount.

Right now I am sitting at my desk wondering what the story for LEGALLY BLIND, the musical would be like. If only I could find my glasses.
