School Of Rock

Pantages Theatre
6233 Hollywood Blvd. Hollywood

Based on the hit film, this hilarious new musical follows Dewey Finn, a failed, wannabe rock star posing as a substitute teacher who turns a class of straight-A students into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band. This high-octane smash features 14 new songs from ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER, all the original songs from the movie and musical theater's first-ever kids rock band playing their instruments live on stage. Vanity Fair raves, "FISTS OF ALL AGES SHALL BE PUMPING!"

Thru - May 27, 2018

Los Angeles Times - Recommended

"...Black doesn't star in the musical, but his round physique, wit, excitability and wailing tenor do - faithfully embodied by the charming Rob Colletti. Lloyd Webber and Slater have added 14 new songs to the film's original handful. With the book by Fellowes (of "Downton Abbey" fame, oddly enough), the result is an implausible, entertaining facsimile of rock 'n' roll dreamed up by people who think they understand rock 'n' roll (but don't, quite)."

LA Weekly - Highly Recommended

"...School of Rock, directed by Laurence Connor at the Pantages Theatre, doesn't bowl you over with its mostly forgettable music. What it does do is deliver well-staged and well-executed family entertainment, showcasing an impressive ensemble of preteen actors who sing, dance and act up a storm. The grown-ups are good, too."

"...Direction by Laurence Connor pushes everything to a feverish pitch, which can sometimes feel like an assault on your senses. Everyone speaks loudly in a high-pitched voice (where diction tends to suffer) and the adult performances have a harsh edge to them that isn't always necessary. Regardless, there's no denying that SCHOOL OF ROCK is a hyper-energetic crowd-pleaser."

"...The Andrew Lloyd Webber rock-comedy doesn't change the landscape of Broadway. It doesn't offer much in the way of an original plot. It doesn't even have any fancy set changes. But what it does have is a gaggle of amazing child performers who are charming triple-threats that are talented as all get out."

"...The musical is adapted from the 2003 movie written by Mike White, directed by Richard Linklater, and starring Jack Black as Dewey, a fake substitute teacher who forms a band with an unlikely mix of nominally repressed students to win a “Battle of the Bands.” Black’s mannerisms and timing have clearly influenced Rob Colletti’s high-energy performance here, but while Dewey is indisputably the lead role, one deadpan look from young actress and bassist Theodora Silverman puts the audience on notice: This is a show where kids rule."
