The St. James Theatre box office for the Broadway engagement of Bring It On: The Musical, the new pop music-fueled production about high school cheerleaders, opens June 21.
Bring It On has music and lyrics by Tony Award winner Lin-Manuel Miranda, music by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning composer Tom Kitt (Next to Normal) and lyrics by Kitt's High Fidelity collaborator Amanda Green. Jeff Whitty, the Tony-winning book writer of Avenue Q, authored the original book for the musical.
The first 100 people in line at the box office receive a free copy of the three-song sampler from Bring It On. The St. James Theatre is located at 246 W. 44th Street.
The national tour, which launched last fall in Los Angeles, will begin its Broadway engagement July 12 for a run through Oct. 7. It officially opens Aug. 1.
Tony-winning In the Heights choreographer Andy Blankenbuehler directs and choreographs the musical, which has musical supervision by Tony Award winner Alex Lacamoire.
Bring It On has scenic design by David Korins, costume design by Andrea Lauer, lighting design by Jason Lyons, sound design by Brian Ronan, video design by Jeff Sugg and hair design by Charles G. LaPointe.
The stage production is produced by Universal Pictures Stage Productions/Glenn Ross, Beacon Communications/Armyan Bernstein and Charlie Lyons, and Kristin Caskey and Mike Isaacson. Beacon and Universal also produced the "Bring It On" films.
Here's how producers bill the work: "In Bring It On: The Musical, the high-stakes world of competitive cheerleading is intertwined with cutthroat high school politics to tell the story of Campbell, the heir apparent to the head cheerleader at Truman High School. Campbell is at the top of the cheerleader pyramid and she has it all — a strong squad, a doting boyfriend and a straight path to the national championships. Her entire life has been dedicated to honing routines and staying within the strict rules and guidelines, but when a surprise letter arrives, Campbell's world is thrown upside down."
