BRISBANE is a town Elle Woods would enjoy, says Legally Blonde star Lucy Durack.

The actress, who is currently playing the pink-loving blonde bombshell at Sydney's Lyric Theatre, reckons Woods would enjoy sipping Pavlova cocktails in the West End as much as she did during her stint in the city with Wicked.

Durack stars in Legally Blonde with Wicked co-stars Rob Mills, who plays heartbreaker Warner, and David Harris, who plays Emmett.

The hit musical will premiere at QPAC's Lyric Theatre on March 14 next year and play a strictly limited season, it was announced today.

Durack is already planning things to do with her co-stars Rob Mills Erika Heynatz, who have never performed in a musical in Queensland before.

"We're going to go to Dreamworld and Noosa," Durack said.

"I love Brisbane. This is what we were all really hoping was going to happen."

Brisbane is the second capital city to get the show after it opened to rave reviews in Sydney in early October.

Mills said he has been blown away by the reception the show has received, particularly from male theatre-goers.

"One of my mates said 'I'm going to bring chicks here, it's an awesome date night'," he said.

"It's a really fun show. There are no slow spots, which you find in some shows. It's a gag a minute."

The show also stars Helen Dallimore as Paulette and Cameron Daddo as Professor Callahan.

"Cameron is such a lovely, spiritual, Zen kind of guy, and the role he's playing is opposite to what he is," Mills said.

"I think he really enjoys playing that nasty guy."

Legally Blonde The Musical opens at QPAC on March 14, 2013 and plays a strictly limited season.

Tickets start from $45 and go on sale on Monday, December 3.

To book or for more information ring 136 246 or go to the QPAC website.
