Yesterday (1st May), Jack Black visited Andrew Lloyd Webber’s new Broadway musical School of Rock at the Winter Garden Theatre. Black reportedly received two standing ovations; firstly when he took his seat before the show and again after intermission.
Black, who played Dewey in the original film, met with the cast led by Alex Brightman. He visited the show with fellow actor Paul Rudd and family. Check out images below (click picture to enlarge).
Based on the 2003 film, School of Rock has music from the movie as well as original songs by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Glenn Slater. Book is by Julian Fellowes with direction by Laurence Connor. Producers previously announced that School of Rock would open at the London Palladium later this year; however, plans have now been changed and the show is expected to open at a different West End theatre in 2017.
