The Tonys always showcase musicals nominated for awards but this year's telecast will also include performances from three national tours. Legally Blonde the Musical was chosen along with Jersey Boys and Mamma Mia!. Neil Patrick Harris will host the 63rd Tony Awards from Radio City Musical Hall.
For those who haven't seen the popular MGM film or musical, Legally Blonde follows sorority star Elle, an underestimated blonde who doesn't take "no" for an answer. When her boyfriend dumps her for someone more "serious," Elle puts down the credit card, hits the books, and sets out to go where no Delta Nu has gone before: Harvard Law. Along the way, Elle proves that being true to yourself never goes out of style.
