Autumn Hurlbert and Lauren Zakrin are among the former contestants from the 2008 reality competition Legally Blonde The Musical: The Search for Elle Woods scheduled to gather for a pair of reunion concerts July 23 at Feinstein’s/54 Below.
The MTV series was designed to pick the replacement for Tony-nominated leading lady Laura Bell Bundy in the 2006 Broadway musical, based on the film of the same title.
The 7 and 9:30 PM concerts will feature Hurlbert (Something Rotten! national tour) and Zakrin (Cruel Intentions: The Musical, The Great Comet), along with Rhiannon Hansen, Natalie Lander (ABC’s The Middle), Rachel Potter (The Voice, The Addams Family), Lindsay Ridgway, Libby Servais (Wicked, Lysistrata Jones), and Cassie Silva (Matilda, Rock of Ages). In addition, Cassie Okenka (School of Rock, Wicked) will appear at the 9:30 PM.
Hurlbert was first runner-up to series winner Bailey Hanks. Runners-up Hansen and Zakrin performed in the show’s national tour.
Paul Canaan, an original Legally Blonde ensemble member who served as a judge on the series, will host the event.
The cast is subject to change. The concerts are being produced by Jen Sandler and musically directed by Joshua Zecher-Ross.
