We want to see more of the parade.  All you see are the MC's talking about anything but the parade.  They had a musical group on in their studio.  What do they have to do with the Macy's parade?  Please!!!!!!!!!!!!  They aren't even showing the balloons that much, If you are not there, you really don't see the parade that much on TV.

Who else did you meet when you went to the Legally Blonde stage door? I'm so bummed it is closing before I got a chance to go to NY. Did you meet Christian? I have met Nikki Snelson when she was in A Chorus Line, and Andy Karl and Gaelen Gilliland in 9 to 5- all in Los Angeles. They were all very sweet.

their costumers might not have agreed with the strike, or like the offlocation ones, they were filmed before.

That's cute that one of their mom made the skirts. They looked great! It wasn't as fancy as the real costumes, but they looked so cute anyway.

it is lipsung becuase it is on national television and things could go wrong

Oh, and we were talking with the cast and they were like "umm we dont know what we are going to do about costumes" lol

it was because they couldnt get through the strikers into the Palace Theater

thats gotta suck to be singing in the freezing cold in a uniform but i love this song and legally blonde! i get to meet her on may 10th!
Report spam or abuse
Relax. I'm not calling you stupid. Some people just didn't know why they weren't in regular costume. So what do you think of the new Elle? I was happy to see Bailey get the role. Jerry Mitchell was smart to cast the other girls too after all that work!

i love her outfit, haha especially the leg warmers.

This has nothing to do with the writers strike. Get you're facts before you critique please. :-)

I wanted to be up early to see this, but I woke up I think right after they performed and I was soo mad! So, hey can't use the costumes and regular stuff because of the strike? All I saw was Mary Poppins and they had theirs but that is because they are still running. So sad. And I think I heard her contract expires in March, but then I heard February. So I am guessing it's around that time. Thanks for posting!

No Annaleigh..? *looking sad, really sad*

I am so glad that you added this!! I missed it by like 45 minutes....I wish they could have had atleast all the costumes b/c Laura's is soo cute from the musical...but I liked what she wore here to the skirt and leg warkers looked cute. Thanks again! <33

does anyone know when her contract expires, (laura bell bundy) anyone know how to find out?
Report spam or abuse
i was responding to someone a few pages back who was asking why some of the other shows had costumes.
Report spam or abuse
What's harder to believe; that they actually turned the movie into a musical, or that the musical isn't too bad?
Report spam or abuse
wow shes definetly lip singing

because of the strike and chenzel =] was able to do it because there wasnt a strike that year...and dnt b srry im obsessed with dee =]

that strike was sooooooo fcking annoying! thanks god for ending it!

She must have been burning up everyone is sweating! She must be in great shape!

...No. A few hours before they actually perform, they have a dress rehearsal. They record that and the actors lipsynch to that during the live performance. Everybody does it for the Macy's Day Parade. It's not a big secret or scandal.

yeah writers & stagehands WERE strinking but the stagehands was y performances stopped xx

That is great! He was so funny as a judge "You're a hit!" Anytime there is a Legally Blonde anything around NY, Paul is always there. I wonder why he left the show Sunday? Any clues as to what he is doing next?

Too bad it's not live, LBB sings amazing live!!
Report spam or abuse
its freaking like 5* out there so they probably wanted to dress a lil warmer. lol
Report spam or abuse
the other 3 shows aren't affected by the strike so they could use costumes

Annaleigh is great! I heard she is in Chicago now? Is that true? My favorite Fiyero, Kristoffer Cusick in there in Chicago. He is wonderful!!!

I think they should've done the Bend and Snap song instead.
Report spam or abuse
no! thhey already have costumes it wouldnt have cost any more! but they wernt allowed 2 use costumes! they were locked up! i found out lol x
Report spam or abuse
Cause the people were on strike, so they weren't allowed the use the props and the actual costumes. It's cool because it shows you how the people really look without their costumes and wigs and stuff.

well despite not having costumes i liked it hey at least they were able to perform

Yea. Well I got to see Mary Poppins and I as very upset because I didn't get to see this. But thats okay.

If you remember it was actually kinda warm that weekend. :D

She is really one of the most likeable and approachable people you could ever meet. And that smile is contagious!
Report spam or abuse
lol true, however if there going to say that "The original cast" are the ones singing then maybe they could actually ing it for real. Just my opinion, if i wanted to hear a voice over i would have put on the CD.
Report spam or abuse
um yea...i was there (as ive said b4) and it was freezing i was wearing a huge leather jacket and everything and i was still cold..imagine her!! a mini skirt and teeshirt i dont blame her =] lol yea u gotta love LBB
Report spam or abuse
As cool as it would have been for them to be in costume, i respect their choice not to pass the picket line. I also believe that with the limits placed upon them the cast still continued to shine and do an excellent job. Also to watch the number without its finishing sparkleing touches, i was able to see the dancing better, and i believe i could hear them singing more clearly...does that make sense?

While Laura and the rest of them were great in this performance, I felt like they could have done a better song.
Report spam or abuse
Nobody sang live in the whole parade, or at least in all the acts I saw nobody did and it rlly bugged me
Report spam or abuse
They don't have their costumes because they were locked in the theatre during the stange hand strike, so they had to make do with what they already had. I thought they did amazing considering what happened. I love Laura Bell :)

i think she is really singing because it was raspy in the beginning...more than usual...but it seemed during the dance break it could have been lip synching...i dont really know
Report spam or abuse
You know what? I didn't even really pay attention to that. I just wanted them to shut up. But, now I listened and that was kind of rude. She never really was simple minded, not even in the movie. I mean obviously she had to be pretty smart to get into Harvard.

Gotta Love Laura's face at 1:40 ! LOL

Was this during the strike, so they couldn't use their normal stage outfits?
Report spam or abuse
thats what i was thinking. i think its becky gulsvig or however you spell it.
Report spam or abuse
It was due to the strike, the stagehands to be exact, they could not use wardrobe and props.
