Bitingly relevant and sprinkled with sass, Tony Award best-musical nominee BRING IT ON: THE MUSICAL, inspired by the Bring it On film, takes you on a high-flying journey through friendship, forgiveness, and determination. BRING IT ON: THE MUSICAL tells the story of the challenges and unexpected bonds formed through the thrill of extreme competition. With a colorful crew of characters, an exciting fresh sound, and explosive dance with aerial stunts, this all-new story is sure to be everything you hoped for and nothing like you expected. The New York Times calls it “impossible to resist!” Uniting some of the freshest and funniest creative minds on Broadway, 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 Prize- and Tony-winning composer Tom Kitt (Next to Normal), lyrics by Broadway lyricist Amanda Green (High Fidelity), and music supervision by Tony and Grammy winner Alex Lacamoire (In the Heights). The production is directed and choreographed by Tony winner Andy Blankenbuehler (In the Heights).
