Bring it On has extended its run at Broadway’s St. James Theatre. The musical, which began performances July 12 and opened officially on August 1, was originally scheduled to play a limited engagement through October 7. The production will now run through January 20, 2013.
Inspired by the 2000 film of the same name, Bring It On features music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, music by Tom Kitt, lyrics by Amanda Green and a book by Jeff Whitty. Following a 13-city natinoal tour, the new Broadway musical mixes the high-stakes world of competitive cheerleading with cutthroat high school politics. Directed and choreographed by Andy Blankenbuehler, the musical tells the story of the challenges and unexpected bonds formed through the thrill of extreme competition.
