It has been announced that Andrew Lloyd Webber's stage adaptation of School of Rock will open on Broadway next year.
The show will premiere at the Winter Garden Theatre on 6th December 2015 (previews from 2nd November). Based on the 2003 movie, School of Rock will be directed by Laurence Connor, with a book by Downton Abbey’s Julian Fellowes. The musical will feature music from the movie, as well as new music written by Lloyd Webber and lyricist Glenn Slater.
Choreography is by JoAnn M. Hunter, with scenic and costume design by Anna Louizos, lighting design by Natasha Katz and sound design by Mick Potter. This marks the first time Lloyd Webber has opened a show on Broadway before London since Jesus Christ Superstar in 1971.
