About the Show:
“FOR THOSE ABOUT TO LOVE SCHOOL OF ROCK, WE SALUTE YOU!” (Time Out New York). This hit Broadway musical is a New York Times Critics’ Pick and “AN INSPIRING JOLT OF ENERGY, JOY AND MAD SKILLZ!” (Entertainment Weekly). Reuters raves ”ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER HAS BROADWAY ROCKING!”
Based on the hit film, SCHOOL OF ROCK follows Dewey Finn (ALEX BRIGHTMAN in what The Hollywood Reporter calls “a hilarious, star-making performance”).
