My son Tucker, 17, is a junior in high school, and this year the school is putting on the musical Legally Blonde. That is not a musical, or even a movie that I had seen. All I knew about it was Reese Witherspoon, so when Tucker told me he got the part of the UPS guy, it didn't mean much. All he told me was that the female character describes him as "walking porn."
Here he is, wearing a blonde wig, because his hair is still growing in from where he shaved it for the swim team state meet.
I got to see the show Thursday evening after work and Friday evening. It always amazes me how good high school shows can be.
Tucker's part isn't huge, but last night, he literally stopped the show as people laughed and then broke into applause after his first line. He first swaggers across the front of the stage carrying a box. The musicians play some strutting music for him, similar to bow chicka bow wow... He nods his head and raises his eyebrows at a few audience members and they're all laughing before he gets to the other side. So when he walks into the salon and says, "I've got a package." Everyone howled with laughter. The actors had to hold their poses for nearly a minute while people laughed then clapped.
Here is Tuck with a few other cast members after the show. Those black eyebrows really stand out against the blonde wig.
Hope you all are having "yourself a super day."
