Bitingly relevant and sprinkled with sass, "Bring It On: The Musical," inspired by the "Bring It On" film, takes the audience on a high-flying journey filled with the complexities of friendship, jealousy, betrayal and forgiveness. "Bring It On: The Musical" tells the story of the challenges and unexpected bonds formed through the thrill of extreme competition.
The production earned Tony nominations for Best Musical and Best Choreography, and The New York Times called it, "Impossible to resist."
"Bring It On: The Musical" features an original story by Tony Award winner Jeff Whitty ("Avenue Q"), music and lyrics by Tony Award-winning composer Lin-Manuel Miranda ("In the Heights"), music by Pulitzer and Tony Award-winning composer Tom Kitt ("Next to Normal"), lyrics by Broadway lyricist Amanda Green ("High Fidelity") and music supervision by Tony and Grammy Award winner Alex Lacamoire ("In The Heights"). The production is directed and choreographed by Tony Award winner Andy Blankenbuehler ("In the Heights").
The design team includes scenic design by Drama Desk Award winner David Korins ("Motown"), costume design by Andrea Lauer ("American Idiot"), lighting design by Jason Lyons ("Rock of Ages"), sound design by Cody Spencer ("The Book of Mormon") and video design by Jeff Sugg ("Magic/Bird").
"'Bring It On' is a high-octane show that will dazzle you with theatricality and unbelievably intricate cheerleading routines. It's a very cool way to kick off summer," said James Rocco, Ordway's vice president of programming and producing artistic director.
