Les Misérables – The Staged Concert is released on digital download, along with a bonus featurette which is highly amusing.
Andrew Lloyd Webber’s West End production of School of Rock – The Musical announces the show will be extending booking at the New London Theatre to 9 April 2017. Acclaimed by audiences and critics alike, School of Rock – The Musical opened earlier this week to rave reviews.
Here’s everything you need to know about last night’s West End premiere of School of Rock: The Musical in a nutshell: Andrew Lloyd Webber has a monster hit on his hands; the show is both a return to hit factory form for the Lord and also not at all what you’d expect from a Lord; David Fynn as Dewey Finn (that’s still tough to keep straight) is very good and the kids (who they all play their own instruments) are absolutely phenomenal (and they all play their own instruments).
Immature, entertaining and energetic are probably the best words to sum up Andrew Lloyd Webber’s new musical, transferring from Broadway.
School of Rock is a cheerily appealing slice of musical theatre. And with a seemingly endless roll call of talented youngsters who, as we’re reminded at the beginning and the end of the show, play all their own instruments live, shows off a wealth of emerging British musical theatre talent.
Andrew Lloyd Webber announces David Fynn is to lead the London cast of School of Rock – The Musical as wannabe rock star Dewey Finn. Lloyd Webber’s West End production will begin previews at the New London Theatre on 24 October 2016 with opening night on 14 November 2016, School of Rock – The Musical is initially booking to 12 February 2017.
