All-American small-town sweetheart Debbie Benton has one dream- to become a Texas Cowgirls Cheerleader. When she gets her big break, the only thing standing between her and success is the bus fare to Dallas. She and her friends get after-school jobs but when their jobs just don’t cut it, Debbie’s boss has an idea of how good girls can earn lots of money performing “little favors”. The girls get down to it with enthusiasm and through sex, sweat, and tears they raise enough money for Debbie to realize her dream. “Racy and raucous, a lighthearted, fast-paced thoroughly engaging and hilarious send-up.” – The New York Daily News

InDepth InterView: Amanda Green Talks Birdland Show, HANDS ON A HARDBODY, BRING IT ON!, Broadway Memories & More
by Pat Cerasaro - Sep 26, 2013

Today we are talking to uniquely compelling composer and lyricist known for her urbane wit and contemporary sensibility, having contributed music and lyrics to the recent Broadway musicals HIGH FIDELITY, BRING IT ON! and HANDS ON A HARD BODY as well as penning many other original musicals and unique standalone songs over the course of her career, Amanda Green. Discussing her famous musical theatre lineage - her father was legendary theatrical icon Adolph Green and her mother is famous actress Phyllis Newman - and sharing stories from her youth, Green sheds some light on her familial profession of choice and details the finer points of her own songwriting process, particularly insofar as it pertains to her two recent major musicals seen in New York. On that note, Green offers the 411 on the creative process in composing both the rap/pop-infused, high-school-set BRING IT ON! alongside collaborators Tom Kitt and Lin-Manuel Miranda as well as her work with Phish's Trey Anastasio on the down-home country sounds of HANDS ON A HARD BODY. Additionally, Green previews what we can expect from her upcoming Birdland concert, AMANDA GREEN & FRIENDS, and illuminates some of her sparkling previous work which may make its way into the live show. Plus, looks back on her experiences with the screen-to-stage adaptation of HIGH FIDELITY, imparts hilarious anecdotes about writing for Playboy Magazine, reveals her involvement in the currently on-hold Debbie Does Dallas movie musical, reflects on her first musical revue and album, PUT A LITTLE LOVE IN YOUR MOUTH!, as well as drops hints on her next musical project and much, much more!
