School of Rock (The Musical) Details
Over the course of his career, musical composer Andrew Lloyd Webber has put together a catalog of shows that, at least commercially, is paralleled by none. For anyone else, a show like Jesus Christ Superstar, Cats or The Phantom of the Opera would serve as a career-defining achievement. For Lloyd Webber, each is yet another one of his hits. And while each of the aforementioned shows was written before 1990, Lloyd Webber continues to do some of his best work today. He has proven as much with School of Rock, a musical adaptation of the popular 2003 Richard Linklater film of the same name. School of Rock chronicles the tale of Dewey Finn, a failed rock musician who, more or less, lies his way into a role as a long-term substitute teacher at an elite private school. Dewey slowly teaches his uptight students to loosen up a bit through rock ‘n’ roll, and a great time is had by all—both onstage and off.
School of Rock debuted on Broadway at the Winter Garden Theatre in December 2015 to enthusiastic responses from audiences and critics alike. “Andrew Lloyd Webber has entered his second childhood, and it turns out to be a good career move,” Ben Brantley wrote for the New York Times, giving the show a Critic’s Pick designation. “This show...is his friskiest in decades.” School of Rock stars Eric Petersen (Peter and the Starcatcher) as Dewey and Jenn Gambatese (Tarzan) as his love interest, the strict principal Rosalie Mullins. School of Rock will also tour the United States starting in September 2017.
