The Star of Peroxide Capers at Bradway's Palace Theater

Broadway - (Ass Mess): She ain't no Reese Witherspoon and she ain't no Maria Callas. That is the critics' verdict this weekend on Broadway actress Elle Woods in the starring role of Laura Bell Bundy in Legally Blonde the Musical.

"Should have called it Peroxide Capers," said one New York entertainment critic. "Roots need touch-up bleaching", said another.

Others have not been quite so kind.

"Sure the show has pace and is energetic.... in a kinda Duracell Bunny sorta way," one Broadway writer told his readers.

The show opened this weekend starring Laura Bell Bundy as Elle Woods and Christian Borle as Emmett Forrest Gump.

The lyricists responsible for the score, husband and wife team Laurence O'Keefe and Nell Benjamin, have been urged to reconsider a career in packaging.

"At over $110 for a decent seat in the Palace Theater auditorium we're predicting odds of 5/4 that the show will close before July 4th."

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
