Bring It On: The Musical

Taylor Louderman and Adrienne Warren/Craig Schwartz

I went into my interview for LA Stage Times not knowing that in September, the Writers Guild of America filed a request for arbitration on behalf of Bring It On screenwriter Jessica Bendinger, who claimed the musical’s producers “never acquired or received permission to use her exclusive rights.” The WGA was seeking damages and an injunction to halt the show until the producers acquired Bendinger’s rights. The first question I asked the stars focused on the film, and they denied the show had much to do with it. I immediately sensed they were defensive and changed the direction of the interview. It all made sense when I got home and found this information on the Internet.
