The original Broadway cast recording of the cheerleading musical Bring It On will be released digitally on iTunes on September 25 and hit stores nationwide on October 16. Ghostlight Records produced the album, which was recorded at MSR Studios in New York this August. (Broadway.com was even on the scene at the recording studio!)
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. The musical mixes the high-stakes world of competitive cheerleading with cutthroat high school politics and tells the story of the challenges and unexpected bonds formed through the thrill of extreme competition. Directed and choreographed by Andy Blankenbuehler, the musical played a 13-city natinoal tour before coming to Broadway.
Bring it On stars Taylor Louderman as Campbell, Adrienne Warren as Danielle, Ryann Redmond as Bridget, Elle McLemore as Eva, Jason Gotay as Randall, Ariana DeBose as Nautica, Gregory Haney as La Cienega, Neil Haskell as Steven, Janet Krupin as Kylar, Kate Rockwell as Skylar and Nick Womack as Twig. The production also features Calli Alden, Nikki Bohne, Dexter Carr, Shonica Gooden, Haley Hannah, Rod Harrelson, Casey Jamerson, Dominique Johnson, Michael Mindlin, Adrianna Parson and Bettis Richardson.
