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!"

“The hot (and seriously cool) energy that comes from the musical gospel preached by the title character of _FELA! _feels as if it could stretch easily to the borders of Manhattan and then across a river or two. There should be dancing in the streets!” —Ben Brantley, _The New York Times _
“_FELA__!_ Is as rowdy as it is rousing. (It) is one of the most original and exciting shows to come around in a long while.” —_New York Daily News _
“There’s enough energy in the first act of _ FELA!_ to short circuit Con Ed. It spills over from the stage and into the orchestra seats. Boundless and joyous: This is as close as Broadway gets to fully immersive theatre.” —_New York Post _
“Bill T. Jones’s wildly loose-limbed journey into the throbbing heart of Afrobeat breaks bold new ground in musical theatre.” —_Variety _
“ … the most exuberant musical I’ve seen this season. … the fusion of his (Fela’s) sound is rapturously celebrated with a pinwheel parade of pelvises.” —Los Angeles Times
FELA! is a new musical directed and choreographed by Tony Award-winner Bill T. Jones, in which audiences are welcomed into the extravagant, decadent and rebellious world of Afro-beat legend Fela Anikulapo Kuti. Using his pioneering music (a blend of jazz, funk, and African rhythm and harmonies), FELA! explores Kuti’s controversial life as an artist, political activist and revolutionary musician. A three-time Tony Award winner in 2010, this production arrives at the Ordway direct from Broadway.
