Musical genius Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber is planning on bringing 2003 “School of Rock” back to the stage. In an interview on CBS radio, Webber talked about acquiring the rights of the musical along with writing some new songs to go with the original ones. Remember, Jack Black starred in the film alongside Sarah Silverman, Mike White, and Joan Cusack.

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

From the great musical maestro, Andrew Lloyd Webber comes new music to rock you out of your seat. Dallas Summer Musicals presents School of Rock the Musical, based on the film of the same name. Jack Black made you laugh to your core in the lead role, Dewey. Dewey (Rob Colletti) wants nothing more than to become a rock star. He is a leech seemingly stuck permanently to his best friend, Ned’s (Matt Bittner), backside. Much to the dismay of Ned’s girlfriend, Patty (Emily Borromeo), who wants Dewey to grow up and contribute to the household. Faced with the threat of eviction, Dewey assumes Ned’s identity as a substitute teacher for the elite, posh Horace Green Preparatory School. Wackiness ensues and so does your good time!

Theatre Review: ‘Love Never Dies’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 27th, 2018

A quick survey to theatergoers asking for their favorite musical or what comes to mind as the most memorable, and the response would no doubt have Andrew Lloyd Webber’s ‘The Phantom of the Opera’ high on the list. Viewed by over 130 million people since debuting in 1986, this gothic darling has become somewhat of an unstoppable force. Hoping to continue the magic, Webber has followed-up with ‘Love Never Dies‘ after years of planning. But as with any sequel, there’s inevitably going to be skepticism and divided sentiments. If one can look past the questionable plot and magnified melodrama, this ‘Victorian Circus’ dazzles with its radiant set design, prolific props, and alluringly spectral atmosphere.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

It was only a matter time right? Due to the big success of 2012’s ‘Les Miserables‘, which earned Oscars, it’s only fitting that one of the biggest and longest running Broadway musicals would get the big screen treatment. Yes, ‘CATS‘ is coming to a movie theater near you with Tom Hooper directing. Hooper did indeed direct the 2012 ‘Les Miserables‘ and more recently ‘The Danish Girl‘, which also earned some Oscar wins.

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

Phantom

Hollywood continuously proves the theory that projects travel in pairs. It may not be a widely known theory, in fact, I just created it, but that doesn’t mean i don’t have great conviction for the truth it represents. The topic in a dual role right now is ‘Phantom of the Opera‘, the novel from Gaston Leroux first published in 1909. Phantom, of course tells the story of the angelically voiced Christine who is the subject of the phantom’s obsessive thoughts. She loves Raoul, Raoul loves her, the phantom gets jealous. There are many nuances in the book, I’ve left out, there are many nuances in the cliff’s notes version I’ve left out, but none of that will matter if you watch the proposed TV series written by Tony Krantz.

School of Rock Adapted To Series for Nickelodeon!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 5th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

I’m still surprised there is a world where Jack Black and kids go great together, but that’s what 2003’s ‘School of Rock’ proved to be true. Nickelodeon likes the idea so much they have given a straight-to series order for a TV show based on the film. Teaming up with Paramount TV, Nickelodeon brings back director Richard Linklater (‘Dazed & Confused’) and pairing him with writers Jim and Steve Armogida (‘Crash and Bernstein‘) and Scott Rudin (‘No Country For Old Men‘) will executive produce.

The Fabulous Fox Theatre in St. Louis, MO is ending it’s regular 2013-2014 Broadway Tour season with ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat‘. Talk about one excited girl! Joseph was my very first Broadway experience, and by experience, I mean it’s the first Little Theatre production I saw, the first time a show stuck with me deeply.
