The traveling production of Bring it on has been cancelled.
After opening in December at the Southbank Center, the piece was set to visit locations across the UK and Ireland after completing its (still ongoing) run in London.
Producers Selladoor Worldwide said today: “The cancellation of 13 performances resulted in an overwhelming loss of revenue for the production during a peak period that would otherwise have provided a vital financial backbone for the tour. This loss of income, amounting to hundreds of thousands of pounds, unfortunately made the remainder of the tour financially unsustainable. It would be irresponsible of us to continue, so we have no choice but to cancel the rest of the tour.
“We did not take this decision lightly and have explored all possible alternatives to avoid cancellation. Selladoor remains incredibly proud of this fantastically received production and is grateful to everyone who worked so hard on it, and everyone the audiences who cheered us on. We are only too aware of the impact this will have on our wonderful cast, crew, musicians and creative team, as well as our audiences, venues, and suppliers to whom we owe working during the tour, was forced into this position, but the impact of these cancellations caused by Omicron left us with no other choice. “
Performances at the Southbank Center are not affected by this cancellation – so the show will end on January 22, 2022.
Based on the hit film of the same name, the show has a score by Lin-Manuel Miranda and Tom Kitt, with lyrics by Miranda and Amanda Green. The book is by Jeff Whitty. It opened in the United States and then was nominated for a number of Tony Awards.
