The first DVD I ever owned was “Bring It On.”
(What? It was a gift.)
Have you seen it? The Rancho Carne High School cheering Toros, in pursuit of their sixth national cheerleading championship in a row, discover that their former team captain stole all their award-winning routines from the East Compton Clovers. Kristin Dunst and Gabrielle Union star as the opposing team captains.
“Bring It On” is campy, cheesy and cheer-wonderful, and now…it’s coming to Broadway!
“Awesome, oh wow!
Like, totally freak me out!
I mean, right on!
The Toros sure are number one!”
I am very excited, and honestly don’t see how this show can miss. The movie has the same fun and energy as “Legally Blonde,” which made an amazing transition from screen to stage. Plus, Tony-award winning composers Lin-Manual Miranda of “In the Heights” and Tom Kitt of “Next to Normal” are providing the lyrics. And Jeff Whitty of “Avenue Q” is writing the book.
They will bring it, no doubt.
We cheer and we lead,
We act like we’re on speed,
You hate us ’cause we’re beautiful,
Well we don’t like you either,
We are cheerleaders.
I cannot wait until 2011.
