It was a night out on the town for my son and I as we took in a Musical Broadway Play, School Of Rock. We loved the movie with Jack Black and couldn’t wait to see the play.
Everything was great even with the script adding on things that made it just as great as the movie. The young cast was amazing and I was rocking out in my seat. Of course everything Live is better. I felt like I was in a concert. The pipes on these kids was incredible.
We had the chance to talk to the cast after and they told us they started singing and playing instruments when they were young. The ages of the cast range from about 9-13. They also mentioned how excited they were when they got the call that they were chosen to be in the play. Two of the boys are brothers in real life and one said it was hard seeing his brother get the job first after auditioning over and over and being told he was too short he finally got the part.
I encourage you to head to Broadway and see School Of Rock. You will want to join a band or your kids will wasn’t to join a band after the show is over. Also if you haven’t seen the movie check it out before you go so you can compare the two. The role of “Dewey “was played by Merritt David Janes the night we went.

Standard About the Show copy:
Currently in performances at the Winter Garden Theatre (1634 Broadway), School of Rock – The Musical is based on the smash hit 2003 film of the same, featuring music from the movie, as well as an original score by Andrew Lloyd Webber, lyrics by Glenn Slater, a book by Julian Fellowes and direction by Laurence Connor. School of Rock – The Musical opened to rave reviews on Sunday, December 6, 2015. This Ben Brantley New York Times ‘Critics’ Pick’ “is an inspiring jolt of energy and mad skillz,” raves Jesse Oxfeld of Entertainment Weekly. And in his four-star Critics’ Pick review, Time Out’s David Cote proclaimed, “School’s IN – forever!” School of Rock – The Musical was nominated for four 2016 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Score (Lloyd Webber and Slater), Best Book (Fellowes), and Best Leading Actor in a Musical (Alex Brightman).
Based on the hit film, School of Rock – The Musical is a hilarious new musical that 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.
Disclosure: This play was hosted and tickets were given for my honest review. Opinions are mine 100% as always. Thank you for a great night out with my son. We really enjoyed it.
