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!"

Great production. However, we learned earlier that the star had some illness, and it showed during the performance. Her voice and tone were such that her understudy should have played the role. It was distracting and difficult to understand her in a serious musical where the words are critical to the plot.
Quotes & Highlights
Goldstar members raved about Next to Normal during its Los Angeles run. Check out their reviews.
The most talked about new show on Broadway is the groundbreaking musical Next to Normal. From the director of Rent_, this Tony Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning rock musical “pushes Broadway in new directions” (_Rolling Stone). With a thrilling contemporary score by Brian Yorkey and Tom Kitt, Next to Normal is an emotional powerhouse of a musical about a family trying to take care of themselves and each other. “It is much more than a feel-good musical; it is a feel-everything musical.”_ (The New York Times)_
“This is a unique opportunity to present Next to Normal here at the Ordway in its first national tour,” says Patricia A. Mitchell, Ordway president and CEO. “To tackle the complex subject of bipolar disorder in a stage production strikes me as a harrowing challenge for any director, but Next to Normal takes on the challenge and does so with brilliant grace that showcases the unique power of musical theater.”
Alice Ripley, who received the 2009 Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical for her performance in Next to Normal, reprises her acclaimed performance in the musical’s 36-week multi-city North American tour. Next to Normal also features Asa Somers (Dan), Curt Hansen (Gabe), Emma Hunton (Natalie), Jeremy Kushnier (Dr. Madden/Dr. Fine) and Preston Sadleir (Henry).
