Broadway's Bring It On Sets New December 2012 Closing Date
The Broadway production of Bring It On: The Musical will end its run at the St. James Theatre on December 30, 2012, instead of the previously announced January 20, 2013. It will have played 21 previews and 173 performances.
"We are extremely grateful for the enthusiastic audiences who have cheered on this extraordinary cast and that we've been afforded 12 additional performance weeks past our original end date of October 7," said Glenn Ross on behalf of Universal Pictures Stage productions.
"We've decided to forego the historically slow month of January and play our final performance on December 30, at the height of the holiday season, as we celebrate the remarkable achievement of our creative team and all of the talented people who made Bring It On a one-of-a-kind Broadway experience."
Inspired by the popular film franchise about competitive cheerleaders, the musical features an original score by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Tom Kitt, and Amanda Green, along with a book by Jeff Whitty. It is directed and choreographed by Andy Blankenbuehler.
The cast is led by Taylor Louderman as Campbell and Adrienne Warren as Danielle, and features Ryann Redmond as Bridget, Elle McLemore as Eva, Jason Gotay as Randall, Ariana DeBose as Nautica, Gregory Haney as La Cienega, Neil Haskell as Steven, Dominique Johnson as Cameron, Janet Krupin as Kylar, Kate Rockwell as Skylar, and Nicolas Womack as Twig.
