I'm quite a bit more enthusiastic about this show but pleased that you located most of the virtues I admired: agreement with Michael Feingold always makes me feel smarter about any subject but most especially theater. I was particularly struck by the degree to which the creative team took this story on its own terms, then set out to deliver their most honest, confident, and professional work. This isn't a Broadway musical that's trying to be something else (amusement park thrill ride, major motion picture), that doesn't constantly apologize for the material or undercut its own story (as the superficially similar Lysistrata Jones did). It is what it is, no more and no less, but it also strives to be the best at what it is. That we see such attitudes so rarely on Broadway these days is perhaps one reason both Michael Feingold and I see Bring It On as old-fashioned; it's certainly one reason I found the show refreshing and welcome.
