Andrew Lloyd Webber, the man who brought rock and romance to Broadway, is back with a new heart-stirring hit.
Based on the hit film, this hilarious new musical follows Dewey Finn, a failed, wannabe rock star who decides to earn a few extra bucks by posing as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school. There he turns a class of straight-A students into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band. While teaching these pint-sized prodigies what it means to truly rock, Dewey falls for the school’s beautiful, but uptight headmistress, helping her rediscover the wild child within.
Featuring 14 new songs from Andrew Lloyd Webber and all the original songs from the movie, this high-octane smash delivers face-melting guitar riffs and touching romance in equally awesome doses!
This is such a fun musical and is close to the film as it could possibly be. I loved the film so I knew when the musical was announced I had to go see it.

The costumes and set was amazing. The battle of the bands set was so good and I loved how the audience was allowed to film the last song making it seem like a really concert which was cool.
Overall, School of Rock was a great musical, one for those who loved the film. I would definitely see the show again.
