Are you ready to rock?

After schooling Broadway with his newest hit Andrew Lloyd Webber returns to the West End with School of Rock. Adapted from the Jack Black movie of the same name, School of Rock is set to feature his bumbling lead character Dewey Finn, the substitute teacher with rock stardom on his mind. When his own efforts to take on the world fail, he turns to his new class, who happen to be more than a little handy when it comes to musical instruments!

Currently rocking Broadway, this new production mixes songs from the movie with brand new songs by the iconic composer and lyricist Glenn Slater, 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 SAY

Andrew Lloyd Webber is back on form!

After the freefall that was Stephen Ward and the general groan that met the Cats revival last summer, one can be forgiven for greeting the news of this adaptation with a little schadenfreude, but even the most begrudging observer has to admit more »
