Broadway Backstory

Broadway Backstory is a documentary style podcast from TodayTix and Theater People that explores how a show develops from an idea to a full Broadway production. We get the behind the scenes story directly from the people who lived it - the conceivers, actors, directors, and producers. Season two will feature stories from Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton, Kinky Boots, The Light in the Piazza, Bring It On, Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812, Come From Away, and Bonnie & Clyde. Some shows are gone too soon, others seem like they’ll last forever — either way, it all started with an idea.

This week we bring you the tale of 2012's Bring It On: The Musical.

Bring It On was created from the ground up by some of the greatest talents working in theater today: Andy Blankenbuehler (director / choreographer), Lin-Manuel Miranda (music, lyrics), Tom Kitt (Music), Amanda Green (Music, Lyrics), Alex Lacamoire (Orchestrations), and David Korins (scenic design). For the episode, we'll find out how the show developed from a cult hit film to a Tony-nominated fan favorite which broke the mold with its characters and made its way into the Guinness Book of World Records

This episode features brand new interviews with Lin-Manuel Miranda, Andy Blankenbuehler, Tom Kitt, Amanda Green, Taylor Louderman, Adrienne Warren, Gregory Haney, Helene Yorke, and the show's cheer and Stunt coordinator Jessica McDermott.
