Bring it On: The Musical is an adaptation of the smash Hollywood film of the same name. With direction/choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler (In the Heights, 9 to 5, The Apple Tree), a book by Jeff Whitty (Avenue Q), music by Lin-Manuel Miranda (In the Heights) and Tom Kitt (Next to Normal, 13, High Fidelity), lyrics by Amanda Green (High Fidelity) and orchestrations/arrangement/music supervision by Alex Lacamoire (In the Heights, Wicked), I don’t see how this could possibly fail.
The show is looking to mount a regional production in 2011, followed by a national tour. Though no Broadway production has been mentioned, with these names on board, I’d be very surprised if this show didn’t eventually make it to the Great White Way.
