Anthony Creary of Jamaica Plain has been cast as Emmett in Curry College’s Main Stage Theatre production of Legally Blonde, The Musical. Anthony is a Senior Graphic Design major with a minor in Communication. Anthony has enjoyed playing many other roles in Curry Theatre such as Lelio in Sganarelle and being a part of the Improv Cabaret. The ability to become a character and envelope himself in that character is something Anthony loves about theatre. With this final performance he would have come full circle of performing in Improv, Blackbox, and other Main Stage performances. While not on the stage he enjoys art and music.
Legally Blonde, The Musical is based on the novel by Amanda Brown and the MGM motion picture. The book is by Heather Hach and the music and lyrics are by Laurence O’Keefe and Nell Benjamin. A fabulously fun award-winning musical, Legally Blonde, The Musical follows the transformation of Elle Woods as she tackles stereotypes and scandal in pursuit of her dreams. Action-packed and exploding with memorable songs and dynamic dances – this musical is so much fun, it should be illegal! Elle Woods appears to have it all. Her life is turned upside down when her boyfriend Warner dumps her so he can attend Harvard Law. Determined to get him back, Elle ingeniously charms her way into the prestigious law school. While there, she struggles with peers, professors, and her ex. With the support of some new friends, though, Elle quickly realizes her potential and sets out to prove herself to the world. Curry Theatre’s Main Stage production ran Saturday, April 27 through Tuesday, April 30 at 7:30 PM at the Keith Auditorium at the Academic and Performance Center on the Milton campus, which is located at 1071 Blue Hill Avenue.
