School of Rock – The Musical Proves Rock and Roll is Here to Stay
On a street most known for its prolific opera arias and high-energy ballet ensembles, Broadway can consider itself officially rocked by the explosive School of Rock – The Musical. A spinoff of the hit Hollywood blockbuster of the same name, this musical reminds us of something rocker Neil Young has known all along: Rock and roll can never die.
Class is in Session at School of Rock – The Musical
Andrew Lloyd Webber has become synonymous with Broadway hits, bringing you favorites like Phantom of the Opera, Cats, Jesus Christ Superstar, and Evita. His latest masterpiece, School of Rock – The Musical, isn’t his first dive into rockstar fandom, but it’s positioned to be a pivotal performance that will capture the hearts and minds of its audience and keep rock and roll alive for future generations.
Touted as the “ultimate field trip,” the show follows a similar storyline to the original film. Failed rock-and-roller Dewey Finn poses as a substitute teacher in an upper-class private school. Feeling disconnected to the class of straight-A students, Finn discovers how music can become their common language. As a result, this elite group of honor students transforms into the youngest, raddest group of rock-and-rollers you’ve ever seen.
Are You Ready to Get Schooled?
School of Rock – The Musical is still alive and well on Broadway, but the show has also hit the road to spread the joyous sounds of rock and roll across the country. With 14 new songs from Webber himself and all the film’s original hits, this is one smashing show you won’t want to miss!
