It was an epic night at Broadway Sessions Thursday, February 11th, as cast members from School of Rock descended from the top of Mt. Rock (aka The Winter Garden Theater) and invaded the Laurie Beechman Theater. The kids in the band, and some adults, wielded their instruments like light sabers, slaying tune after tune.

Aside from face shredding performances, the kids got to test their knowledge of rock musicals against audience members in a fast paced round of "Name That Musical", adults revealed all in Broadway Sessions signature "scientifically formulated" 20 questions segment and the crowd clapped along and sang back up. World's collided when original film Billy and Broadway Billy, Brian Falduto and Luca Padovan respectively, came face to face for an impromptu rendition of Michael Jackson's "Man in the Mirror". MJ was was surely in the air, as cast members ended the night with a blazing, fully choreographed, (and gloved) "Smooth Criminal". And what night at Broadway Sessions would be complete without a group sing-a-long of "Seasons of Love"? Check out these video highlights here and be sure to check in on Broadway Sessions YouTube channel to see every performance.
