Still head-banging on Broadway, School of Rock
is ready to shred at Hollywood Pantages. This New York Times
Critics' Pick was adapted from the 2003 film that launched Jack Black as a full-blown star, and just happens to feature 14 new songs from the King of the Musical, none other than Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber. All the original tunes from the film are included too, and Entertainment Weekly
called this stage version "an inspiring jolt of energy, joy and mad skillz." The show follows Dewey Finn, who was kicked out of his band and is struggling to make ends meet when he finds himself in the most unlikely of jobs -- teaching at a prestigious prep school. When he discovers his students' talent for classical music, he decides to steer them over to rock 'n' roll, turning this class of straight-A students into a guitar-shredding, mind-blowing, kick-ass band. Awesomeness ensues. Get "way hardcore" and snap up your tickets to this rocking musical.
