Legally Blonde (Regents Park Open Air Theatre)
Role Choreographer & Musical Staging
Ellen Kane’s choreography is fabulously playful and the ensemble is strong.
A phenomenal skipping scene opens the second act – with cheerleading-inflected choreography by Ellen Kane. It’s the perfect example of the massive energy and bright, bursting fizz that makes the production explode off the stage.
Meanwhile, numbers such as skipping rope spectacle “Whipped Into Shape” show off Ellen Kane’s sharp and impressive choreography.
Ellen Kane's choreography is truly fabulous. It's exuberant and energetic – the skipping routine in "Whipped into Shape" is so precise and demanding that you really wonder how the cast can carry on singing – but it is also sexy rather than sexualised.
