'Bring It On' Comes to Eisenhower April 17
Tony Award best-musical nominee “Bring It On: The Musical” — set amid the high-flying world of competitive cheerleading — takes audiences on a journey through friendship, forgiveness and determination at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 17, in Penn State’s Eisenhower Auditorium.
Inspired by the film “Bring It On,” the touring Broadway show tells the story of the challenges and unexpected bonds formed through the thrill of extreme competition.
The New York Times called the show “impossible to resist.” With a sassy crew of characters, an exciting fresh sound, explosive dance and aerial stunts, this all-new story is sure to be an entertaining evening.
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).
