Commentaires : Not since 1971 has Andrew Lloyd-Webber launched a show on Broadway before London's West End, so we can expect that this new production, that will mix songs from the movie with brand new songs by the iconic composer and lyricist Glenn Slater, will be a rockin' spectacular! Oh, and the book comes from Julian Fellowes, the writer of a "relatively unknown" TV show called Downtown Abbey. Nope, we've never heard of it either....
Presse : Les critiques sont très très bonnes:
"Andrew Lloyd Webber has entered his second childhood, and it turns out to be a good career move. For his latest offering...this lordly British composer has been hanging out with fifth graders. Youth, it would seem, is rejuvenating." Ben Brantley for New York Times

"Brightman is huggable and kinetic and rocks steady as a slacker who saves the day. The actor lives up to his surname and earns his gold star. Better, gold devil horns." Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

"'School Of Rock' is a rock solid hit!" Roma Torre for NY1

"It worked for the movie, and wow, does it work on Broadway, a double jolt of adrenaline and sugar to inspire the most helicoptered of tots to play hooky and go shred an ax. For those about to love School of Rock: We salute you." David Cote for Time Out New York

"The crowd-pleasing, upbeat musical based on the beloved film 'School of Rock' opened Sunday at the Winter Garden Theatre with a wondrously rebellious spirit and a superb cast." Mark Kennedy for Associated Press

"Ultimately, what makes this show a crowd-pleaser is the generosity of spirit with which it bestows the reward of cool self-realization on every last outsider and underdog — whether it's the actual children catching an early glimpse of the adults they will become, or the eternal man-child Dewey, proudly resisting that path." David Rooney for Hollywood Reporter

"Alex Brightman maintains his own appealing brand of scruffy charm as Dewey Finn, amiably ceding the spotlight to a cast of super-talented kids who rock out on the kind of songs you always wished had been in the movie... Rock on, kids, rock on." Marilyn Stasio for Variety
