The Sunday Giveaway: 2 Tickets to Bring It On!
Many, many years ago, I tried to get the rights to Bring It On.
I thought it would make a great musical . . . it had music, rhythm and choreography built into its competitive West Side Story like plot. Add that to the strength of its pre-existing brand, and I saw big potential.
Obviously, so did the Producers of the movie because they kept the rights themselves and this fall, Bring It On: The Musical debuts at the Ahmanson in LA. (I still have the rejection letter somewhere.)
And one lucky reader on the West Coast (or East Coast reader who is too excited to wait until this touring production comes to a theater near him/her) is going to see Bring It On: The Musical for free!
This week, we’ve got two tickets to the Jeff Whitty/Tom Kitt/Lin-Manuel Miranda/Amanda Green musical to give away, and here’s how we’re going to do it:
The Producers of Bring It On took the inspired yet unconventional path of hiring two different sets of composer/lyricists for the two different types of musical “voices” they wanted in the show. And they were lucky enough to get some of the most gifted CLs working in the game today.
So riddle me this, readers . . . What two Composer-Lyricists would you like to see work together on a musical? Comment below with your response (email subscribers click here), and I’ll pick a winner at random.
Ready? Ok! BRING IT!
