      “Too concerned with alienating tourist audiences . . . ”

      Tourists? Bring It On has been touring for a while now, it cam through LA last year. Hilarious that Queerty would suggest that the show was re-written for Broadway due to tourists.

      As for brilliant Queerty review, err, juvenile, err, OK, it’s based on a movie about cheerleaders, I guess they were surprised not to find Elaine Stritch in the lead role.

      While their intentions were no doubt good… giving the trans girl character some stupid name like “La Cienaga” when everybody manages to have a vaguely normal name just serves to drag up her identity and make her some form of ‘fictional girl.’ And yet again, yet another trans character is portrayed by a non-trans person.

      I also note that this character is clearly copied from a real life case involving an African American trans girl student who was trying to join the Cheer Squad of a high school in Seattle and no, she wasn’t easily accepted and the ACLU got involved.
