"A double jolt of adrenaline and sugar to inspire the most helicoptered of tots to play hooky and go shred an ax. For those about to love School of Rock: We salute you."

Time Out New York

Why See School of Rock - The Musical?

From Andrew Lloyd Webber

Andrew Lloyd-Webber educates us once more with this rocking show! Adapted from the 2003 Jack Black movie of the same name, School of Rock features bumbling lead character Dewey Finn, played by Eric Petersen (Shrek The Musical), the hilarious slacker with rock stardom on his mind.

Not since 1971 has Andrew Lloyd-Webber launched a show on Broadway before London's West End! This new production, which mixes songs from the movie with brand new songs by the iconic composer and lyricist Glenn Slater, is a rockin' spectacular! Oh, and the book comes from Julian Fellowes, the writer of a "relatively unknown" TV show called Downtown Abbey. Nope, we've never heard of it either....

What is School of Rock About?

Rock star wannabe Dewey Finn is down on his luck. He's just been kicked out of own band No Vacancy for his over enthusiastic on-stage antics, and his landlord is threatening conviction unless he coughs up his overdue rent. Desperate for money, he disguises himself as a substitute music teacher to land a position at a well-to-do prep school.

When he meets his new class, a bunch of smart-talking kids who happen to be more than a little handy when it comes to musical instruments, an idea begins to form. A local Battle of the Bands competition is looming, featuring none other than No Vacancy, and Dewey sees a chance for both revenge and a proper shot at rock stardom!

What we thought

ENERGETIC entertaining Fabulous!

Alex Brightman gives off an infectious energy that's hard to ignore

Legend of the Broadway world, Andrew Lloyd Webber definitely brought out his inner child for SOR. He's like the prep school Principal in the show; happily able to let his hair down and rock out when faced with music that feeds the soul.
