Review | Bring It On, Queen Elizabeth Hall ⋆⋆⋆⋆

My enduring love and respect for cheerleading dates back to watching the 2000's Bring It On film with Gabrielle Union and Kirsten Dunst.

The result is an adrenaline fuelled and ultimately uplifting production which seeks to connect with misfits everywhere and remind them that they are not alone in [...]
