Bring It On: The Musical is now in the works. Set in the world of competitive cheerleading, the musical will have an all-star creative team, including composer Lin-Manuel Miranda (In the Heights), bookwriter Jeff Whitty (Avenue Q), composer Tom Kitt (Next To Normal), lyricist Amanda Green (High Fidelity), and choreographer Andy Blankenbuhler (In the Heights). The 2000 film of the same name spawned a whole franchise, and it seems that those movies have served as the inspiration for the forthcoming Broadway show, though the musical will not be using the plots from any of those movies.
The newly-released original Broadway cast recording of In the Heights will be celebrated at a CD signing in the Times Square Virgin Megastore (1540 Broadway) this evening at 5pm. The cast – headed by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mandy Gonzalez, Priscilla Lopez, Robin De Jesus, and Andrea Burns – will perform musical numbers from the show and then sign CDs for fans. The In the Heights Broadway cast album is a two-disc set, released by Ghostlight Records.
