Nikki Gil, Legally Blonde! - Boy AbundaIs it true that Nikki Gil is determined to go blonde next year? Isa ba ito sa kanyang mga career moves for 2010?

Yes, the news is legally true. It is confirmed that audiences will see a different Nikki sporting blonde hair but only when performing onstage as Elle Woods in Atlantis Productions’ Legally Blonde The Musical. It will premiere in Manila on June 2010 at the Meralco Theatre and is directed by Chari Arespacochaga.

Expect Nikki to wear those bright and stylish pink dresses as she walks down from the Delta Nu sorority house to the august halls of justice. Tagging along with Nikki is the lovable chihuahua, Bruiser.

Ang Legally Blonde The Musical ay hango sa pelikulang Legally Blonde na pinagbidahan ni Reese Witherspoon. Sa Amerika, unang napanood sa San Francisco ang Legally Blonde: The Musical noong January 23, 2007 at sa Palace Theater on Broadway noong April 29, 2007 starring Laura Bell Bundy.

Ayon kay Simone Genatt, Chairman of Broadway Asia Company na nag-produce ng Legally Blonde sa New York, “With the tremendous star power of Nikki Gil heading an incredibly talented cast of local performers, we feel very confident that legally Blonde will be very successful in the hands of Atlantis Productions.”

Nikki has already begun her vocal and dance preparations. “I’m very excited to have been chosen to play Elle Woods! It’s a challenge in terms of stamina and vocal endurance so I really have to prepare for it,” Nikki says.

Elle Woods is a famous character not only because of her bubbly personality but also for her grit to prove herself and to do well at the prestigious Harvard Law School. Siya ang tipo ng babae who doesn’t take “no” for an answer. When her boyfriend Warner dumps her for someone else, this doesn’t dampen her spirit but instead she hits the books. Elle teaches everyone about women empowerment. But knowing Elle, she does this without going out of style.

I look forward to seeing Nikki in the musical. Parang kailan lang nang una siyang lumabas sa isang Coke commercial as the simple lass who walked down the street in jeans and shirt giving away bottles of Coca-Cola to everyone she met while singing Kasama Ka. Ngayon, she is one of the country’s most talented young artists. At kahit abala sa kanyang showbiz career, Nikki graduated from Ateneo with an English Literature degree.
