BWW TV: How Does Broadway's Best Rock Out? We Get Answers on the SCHOOL OF ROCK Red Carpet!

Based on the smash hit 2003 film of the same title, School of Rock: THE MUSICAL, with music from the movie, as well as an original score by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyricist Glenn Slater, a book by Julian Fellowes and direction by Laurence Connor, made its World Premiere on Broadway last night, December 6, at the Winter Garden Theatre. BroadwayWorld was on the red carpet to chat with the evening's celebrity guests about how they rock out and you can find out the go-to rock songs of Shanice Williams, Andy Karl, Orfeh, Lilla Crawford, Anna Villafane and more below!

Joining Alex Brightman as "Dewey Finn" and Sierra Boggess as "Rosalie Mullins," will be Spencer Moses as "Ned," Mamie Parris as "Patty,"Evie Dolan as "Katie," Carly Gendell as "Marcy,"Ethan Khusidman as "Mason," Bobbi MacKenzie as "Tomika," Dante Melucci as "Freddy," Brandon Niederauer as "Zack," Luca Padovan as "Billy," Jared Parker as "Lawrence," and Isabella Russo as "Summer."

SCHOOL OF ROCK - THE 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. Completely disinterested in academic work, Dewey decides to create his own curriculum, turning his class into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band.
