GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDES NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW
Opening Night: May 9, 2012
Did He Like It?
Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, adapted from the novel by Anita Loos, has a book by Anita Loos and Joseph Fields, music by Jule Styne and lyrics by Leo Robin. Set in the Roaring Twenties, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes follows the madcap adventures of the original "dumb blonde," Lorelei Lee, as she sets sail for Europe with her best friend Dorothy Shaw. Gentlemen Prefer Blondes made a star of Carol Channing on Broadway and later cemented Marilyn Monroe's status as an American film icon and sex symbol in the 1953 screen version. "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend" is the crown jewel in a score that sparkles with songs like "Bye, Bye, Baby," "A Little Girl from Little Rock" and "I Love What I'm Doing (When I'm Doing it for Love)." The original production, directed by John C. Wilson and choreographed by Agnes de Mille, opened at the Ziegfeld Theatre on December 8, 1949, and played a total of 740 performances. The show was revived by Tony Randall's National Actors Theater in 1995 and ran for 24 performances.
Lorelei Is Back, Head Over Carats

"Does gold digging qualify as an official Olympic sport this year? (Hey, since synchronized swimming, you never know.) If it does, there’s no question as to who will be bringing home the gold medals this summer. Yes, folks, the legendary Lorelei Lee has re-entered the ring, and she’s got her mojo back. Anyone who would stand between her and the crown — er, tiara — should prepare to fall."
