So as most of you know my best friend Antwan is an cast member in Bring It On: The Musical and this past week the show has been in Durham!! I was so excited to finally get the chance to see Antwan again and see the show!! I hadn't seen him since September right before he left for New York to start rehearsals and I hadn't actually seen the show since it was in Atlanta last year! I went to the show with my mom and my aunt on Wed night! The show was so good! They had made some changes since I saw it last year but I loved every min of it!! The idea for the musical came from the movies and the fact that cheerleading is such a big sport now, but it is so much more than what the movies were! It is a comedy that will keep you laughing through out the whole show and the stunts and tumbling will keep you wanting to see more. Antwan and the rest of the cast did an amazing job and my mom and my aunt loved it! It was so much fun and I loved listening to the people sitting around us that knew nothing of cheerleading talk about how much they enjoyed the show and talk about all the stunts and tumbling! I heard so many ooos and ahhhs during the show. I really wish I had the chance to go see the show again before it leaves but it just is not in the cards!
After the show we got the chance to go back stage to see Antwan and he took us on a little tour of the DPAC. It was so cool to actually walk on stage and see what he sees every night. It was also interesting to listen to him explain the stage and to walk no the floor (from the audience it looks like just a normal stage floor but its really a bouncy kind of rubber surface!) We walked down the back hallway that has a mural from every show that has performed at the DPAC. It was so neat!! The Bring It On mural was not complete yet so I did not get to get a pic of it but I did get a pic of the Phinease and Ferb Live Show one :) And yes I am like a 5 year old when it comes to Phinease and Ferb! haha but I had such a great time at the show and loved seeing Antwan!! After our tour we went over to Tobacco Road House to get some food and hangout a little. Antwan's mom and some of her coworkers had also come to see the show and Erin, Antwan's girlfriend was also there, so we had a nice little group of people hanging out just talking all about the show! So like I have said already we had a lot of fun and it was just great to see Antwan and get the chance to finally hangout again! So yea for anyone that has not had a chance to go see Bring It On yet, you need to check and see if it is coming to a city near you and go and check it out! It is a great show and the cast is amazing!!
