“Killer Instinct” – Bring It On!
Music: Tom Kitt & Lin-Manuel Miranda Lyrics: Amanda Green & Lin-Manuel Miranda
“Pom Pom Mom” Wanda Holloway was put on trial on this day in 1991 for attempting to hire a hit man to have the mother of her daughter’s cheerleading rival killed. (You can’t make this stuff up.) Apparently, killer instincts are what you need to succeed in the world, at least according to Eva, the villain of this musical about competitive cheerleading. The seemingly innocent but vicious cheerleader explains her plotting in this doozie, easily the musical’s most winning number.
