PHOENIXVILLE —Move a bubbly sorority girl motivated by fun, fashion, and fraternities from her comfort zone in the California sunshine to the stodgy ivy-covered halls of Harvard Law School and enter the world of Elle Woods, a fashionista turned law student. Fueled by “blonde ambition,” she enters the hallowed halls in pursuit of a law degree and the beau who jilted her, only to be met with resistance and hostility, before finding her way, making new friends, and eventually graduating at the top of her class.
