Lin-Manuel Miranda is an American composer and lyricist whose sheer number of awards lays testament to his unwavering talent. In addition to Bring It On and Hamilton, his most notable works also include 21 Chump Street, In the Heights, and songs for the Disney film Moana. Miranda has three Tony Awards, three Grammy Awards, an Emmy, a Pulitzer Prize, a MacArthur Fellowship, and Kennedy Center Honor under his belt.
Amanda Green is an American actress, singer, and songwriter whose most notable works include the lyrics for For the Love of Tiffany: A Wifetime Original Musical, lyrics for High Fidelity, and lyrics for Hands on a Hardbody based on the documentary film of the same name which earned her a Tony Award nomination for Best Original Score. In addition to receiving the 2004 Jonathan Larson Award, Green is also a contributor for Playboy magazine.
Tom Kitt is a Tony Award-winning American musician, composer, and orchestrator who is perhaps best known for his work on American Idiot, Everyday Rapture, and Next to Normal. He has been called “one of the best melodists of our generation” by fellow Bring It On collaborator Lin-Manuel Miranda.
