    What the popular press said...

    "Featherweight concoction."
    Charles Ishwerwood for NY Times

    "Sometimes pretty silly — and very acrobatic — is enough."
    Joe Dziemianowicz for NY Daily News

    "The actors even make most of the time-wasting ponderous songs - and there’s a lot of those in the slow second act - feel semi-bearable."
    Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

    "Aimed squarely at teenage girls."
    Erik Haagensen for Back Stage

    "Shallow, generic effort."
    Robert Feldberg for The Record

    "Target audiences such as my 16-year-old daughter are going to flip over this one."
    Roma Torre for NY1

    "Let’s give a rousing hurrah for 'Bring It On: The Musical,' an endearing new tuner"
    Michael Sommers for Newsroom Jersey

    "Provides enough genuine thrills to compensate for the stop-start storytelling. When the girls are airborne, the show soars."
    David Rooney for The Hollywood Reporter

    "Athletically impressive staging and an engaging score combine to make 'Bring It On' a pert and refreshing summer surprise. "
    Steven Suskin for Variety
