In April 2007 the show moved to Broadway’s Palace Theatre, opening to mostly positive reviews and grossed more than $1,000,000 a week on several occasions. Jerry Mitchell directed and choreographed. The original cast included Laura Bell Bundy as Elle Woods, Christian Borle as Emmett Forrest and Richard H. Blake as Warner. It received seven Tony nominations but failed to win any. The West End production began previews on December 5, 2009 at the Savoy Theatre and opened January 13, 2010. The West End production was nominated for five Laurence Olivier Awards and won three of them, including Best New Musical
The musical was recorded in September 2007 and aired on MTV in October 2007. Following this, a reality TV program was aired showing the audition process for the next person to play Elle Woods on Broadway. The winner was Bailey Hanks, who played the role from July 23, 2008 until the production closed on October 19, 2008
