Run And Tell That!

BRING IT ON THE MUSICAL is this for real?
Yes it is and before you cross it off your list here is the creative team behind the project:
  • Andy Blankenbuehler (Tony Award-winning choreographer of In the Heights) will direct and choreograph the new musical.
  • Book by Avenue Q Tony winner Jeff Whitty.
  • Music by In the Heights Tony winner Lin-Manuel Miranda and Next to Normal Tony winner Tom Kitt.
  • Lyrics by High Fidelity's Amanda Green.
  • Tony Award winner Alex Lacamoire (In the Heights, Wicked) will serve as orchestrator, arranger and music supervisor.

Now what do you think? I love the creative team but really, Bring It On? We can see the first production as early 2011, with a national tour to follow. No cast has been announced yet, I can not even think of who they might ask? The musical is being co-produced by Universal Pictures Stage Productions. (Universal distributed the original film in the U.S.) Also producing are Charlie Lyons and Armyan Bernstein of Beacon Communications. I guess we just have to wait and see.
