Based on the 2003 film of the same name, School of Rock workshopped at New York’s Gramercy Theatre in the summer of 2015 before officially opening at Broadway’s Winter Garden Theatre that December. It marked the first time Andrew Lloyd Webber premiered a show on the Great White Way since Jesus Christ Superstar in 1971. The production picked up four Tony nominations including Best Musical. School of Rock made its West End debut at the New London Theatre on November 14, 2016, garnering the best reviews of the composer’s career. The tuner received three 2017 Olivier nominations including Best New Musical. In an unprecedented move, before the Broadway production even opened, Lloyd Webber granted North American schools and youth groups the opportunity to apply for the rights to perform the show.
