"My First Night on Broadway!": Behind-the-Scenes as a Bring It On Freshman Makes Her Debut

Ariana DeBose's career took some twists and turns after her appearance on season six of TV’s "So You Think You Can Dance." She hit the streets and went on audition after audition until Bring It On's director Andy Blankenbuehler caught a glimpse of her in action. After months on the road with the Lin-Manuel Miranda/Amanda Green/Tom Kitt musical, DeBose finally made it to Broadway. In this exclusive multipart series, Playbill follows DeBose on what was her first opening night on Broadway. We see the all-important right of passage for any Broadway newbie — the Gypsy Robe ceremony, the opening night excitement backstage and more!
