Bring It On: The Musical Critics' Reviews

"Mr. Whitty's book rings amusing changes on all the stock teen-flick clichés, David Korins's stadium-rock set is bright and uncluttered, and the youthful members of the cast are glorious to behold, especially when they get flung in the air."

Review by Terry Teachout from The Wall Street Journal

"[Taylor] Louderman shows real range as Campbell, the golden captain of the pep team whose dreams of a national championship are suddenly derailed by school redistricting. "

Review by Linda Winer from Newsday

"A surprisingly well-crafted, highly enjoyable, feel-good musical with appealing characters, catchy R&B and rap songs, fierce hip-hop choreography and very funny dialogue packed with social media jokes."

Review by Matt Windman from AM NY

"Cheerleading, that most American of pastimes, is not likely to become an Olympic sport anytime soon. Yet the highly acrobatic, gasp-inducing style of sis-boom-bah competition celebrated in 'Bring It On: The Musical,' which opened Wednesday night at the St. James Theater, almost makes you believe that it should be. "

Review by Charles Isherwood from The New York Times

"Fresh-faced [Taylor] Louderman makes an impressive Broadway debut as the spunky Campbell, sharing top billing with four other first-timers, who all earn their spurs."
