FEATURED REVIEWS FOR Bring It On: The Musical

Broadway review: ‘Bring It On'
6 / 10

...'Bring It On' is basically inconsequential. I know that cheerleaders and their nearest will disagree, but for most of us, a story about kids from an urban high school vying for a national cheerleading title against kids from a privileged one is not such a compelling issue, even with helpings of intrigue. At intermission, I was thinking, gee, the dancing is fabulous and the cast, outstanding, but I don't frankly care if these characters live or die. By the end of the show, at least I was curious about how the whole thing would turn out. You can't go too far wrong with a Rocky story done well, but we've been bombarded with so many, a new one has to be inventive to be anything more than routine. 'Bring It On' is neither...The dancing is the single element that electrifies 'Bring It On,' pushing its demands on the cast to the very edge.

Bring It On: Theater Review
8 / 10

Is the show destined for a place in the musical-theater pantheon? Unlikely. But it scores points by reinventing rather than replicating the source material, sampling from a tasty selection of pop-cultural favorites. And the sheer athleticism of the event numbers – with whirling cheerleaders catapulted into the air and then caught in gasp-inducing basket tosses – provides enough genuine thrills to compensate for the stop-start storytelling. When the girls are airborne, the show soars.
