Sprain cancels “Bring it On” performance

web_898x425_BIO_04.ashxYou know what they say to actors right before a show: “Break a leg!”

Not, “sprain a muscle.”

But that’s what happened last night to a cast member of “Bring it On: The Musical,” at the Alliance Theatre.

A statement from the theater didn’t identify the affected performer but said she “sustained a moderate sprain shortly before last evening’s performance.”

Because the injury happened shortly before curtain time last night’s performance had to be cancelled. Patrons were offered a free drink and ticket exchanges or refunds. If you were there and have any issue with your ticket call the box office at 404-733-5000.

Tonight’s 8 p.m. performance will go on as scheduled. The show is running through Feb. 20. Here is the theater’s web site.

We saw this show last week. There is some amazing athletic moves and eye-popping choreography. I’m surprised that none of the performers have not actually broken a leg yet. They are throwing actors thirty feet in the air without a net!

I hope those actors land on their heads and bring this musical to an end. What a waste of time.

I despise cheerleading and cheerleaders. But I LOVED this show.

It is fitting they would perform without nets because cheerleaders usually flip, jump, and toe touch. They do not wear knee or elbow guards or helmets to offer some protection from Injury. The movie was fun and a hit years ago! Should be fun to see the play and how the plot compares.

Saw it last night and loved it. Great choreography, great music, great dancing and amazing athletics. Talented and enthusiastic cast. This one will go to Broadway. Don’t miss it.
