BWW Review: SCHOOL OF ROCK - THE MUSICAL: From Brainiacs to Musical Maniacs Photo BWW Review: SCHOOL OF ROCK - THE MUSICAL: From Brainiacs to Musical Maniacs
by Nancy Grossman - Feb 15, 2019

SCHOOL OF ROCK - THE MUSICAL is bursting with kids, all of them bursting with talent. Based on the 2003 movie starring Jack Black, the stage version is the brainchild of Andrew Lloyd Webber, a guy who knows a thing or two about creating successful musicals. Nominated for four 2016 Tony Awards, the show ran for more than three years on Broadway, a little over a year in London, and the national tour has been on the road since September, 2017. It's a feel good musical with a happy ending, something to lighten up the winter doldrums.
