It tells the story of Elle Woods, a sorority girl who enrols at Harvard Law School to win back her ex-boyfriend Warner. She discovers how her knowledge of the law can help others, and successfully defends exercise queen Brooke Wyndham in a murder trial.

Emmet does offhandedly refer to Elle following Warner to Harvard as stalking, and it could be seen this way by some. But she never follows him to any specific location that she isn't invited to.

"Bend and Snap!" ends with someone's nose being broken. It's non-graphic and there's no accompanying sound effect, though the character does show up later with tape across their nose.

A murder case is a central plot point. The victim is already dead by the time of the story, and nothing is ever shown. All other characters survive.

Not on stage, but a murder trial is a significant plot element. Both the victim's wife and daughter testify. None of the main cast lose any family members during the show.

No, but the beginning of 'Whipped into Shape' might be triggering for people with eating disorders because it references weight loss.

No, but in the song 'Whipped into Shape', Brook Windham calls a woman a 'heifer' and it's clear that Windham's program is a weight loss program.

the two gay men in the number "there, right there!" are portrayed somewhat stereotypically, with both being feminine and flamboyant. the number is about the defense team trying to figure out if nikos is gay or just european. it should be noted that the reason elle first thinks nikos is gay is because he isnt attracted to her, but the song revolves mostly around his looks, citing his outfit as a reason why he must be gay. personally, i don't mind it as there totally are feminine gay men and it's not derogatory, but it felt important enough to mention
