Created by a dream team of musical theater superstars -- including some of the Tony-winning creative talents behind Avenue Q, In the Heights, Next to Normal and High Fidelity -- Bring It On: The Musical makes its way to the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts for a limited engagement after a successful national tour. Showcasing the intense rivalries and amazing athletics of the world of competitive cheerleading, this original story (inspired by the Bring It On film) centers on a perky high school girl named Campbell, a cheerleading captain who's forced to move to a new school. While struggling to define herself in an unfamiliar crowd of kids that look and act nothing like her, Campbell teams up with the hip-hop crew and starts a completely original cheer squad. The fresh-faced, high-energy cast lets loose with some incredible aerial stunts, choreographed to a soundtrack full of upbeat songs in this musical that The New York Times hailed as "impossible to resist!"

I bought these tickets knowing absolutely nothing about the play other than I'd overheard from some actor friends that it was very good. Since it was my husband's birthday, I figured this would make a nice gift. We both absolutely loved the play. The performances were all top-notch, the writing deft and insightful, and even the set was terrific. I so love taking chances on shows here in the Twin Cities; I can count on one hand the number of times I've been disappointed. Many thanks to the cast, director and crew of this wonderful show.

Too much booze, pills, profanity. Lots of yelling. Everyone dysfunctional (except maybe the son). Characters not likable (except maybe the son).
Why is this play garnering such accolades? Beats me.
A disappointing evening at best.
