IMPOSSIBLE TO RESIST! This high-energy new musical really brings something fresh.”
– THE NEW YORK TIMES

“A CLEVER AND EXUBERANT MUSICAL”
– THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

“THIS IS A MUSICAL WITH HEART - likely beating very, very fast. Bring It On also has MORE – more athletics, more songs, more dazzle, more interesting characters. It’s sometimes sarcastic, sometimes post-ironic, often hip-hopish and yet also traditionally structured. A lot of theatergoers will share that bouncy feeling when leaving the infectious musical comedy.”
 – ASSOCIATED PRESS 

“SMART WRITING THAT’S LAUGH OUT LOUD FUNNY…CRISP AND POPPY TUNES… ENDLESS HIGH-FLYING STUNTS. BRING IT ON, INDEED.”
– ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

WONDERFULLY REFRESHING! A MUSICAL OF UNEXPECTED CHARMS. IT’S NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE TO OVER-CREDIT THIS THRILLING YOUNG CAST. The rhythmic and harmonic textures are an unmistakable advance on the pop-Broadway norm. Muscular beat-driven tapestries ("Do Your Own Thing," "Friday Night Jackson") sit serenely alongside character songs ("It Ain't No Thing") and yearning balladry ("One Perfect Moment").”
– NEW YORK MAGAZINE

SHARP DIALOGUE, A PROPULSIVE SCORE. Musically, Bring It Onemploys a variety of pop genres: 1980s disco, power ballad, even a hint of reggae. The ENORMOUSLY TALENTED CAST has everything to put on a FIRST-RATE ACROBATIC DISPLAY.”
