Not only does the musical include all of the original songs from the School of Rock movie, it has 14 new songs added by Webber, making it a rock ‘n roll fest that is unmatched in Broadway. This musical has captured audiences who love to rock out and also love the romantic storyline woven into the show.

About the School of Rock’s CreatorAndrew Lloyd Webber is known for being the man who brought rock ‘n roll to Broadway. Webber is probably best known for his musicals The Phantom of the Opera, Jesus Christ Superstar, Cats, Evita and Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat, although he has written many more. Webber loves to push the envelope when it comes to music, leading to groundbreaking songs such as "Memory", "Phantom of the Opera", and "Jesus Christ Superstar". Webber took an interest in writing the School of Rock because he felt it would be an empowering force for music that would reach all generations. He wanted it to be a musical that would be as fun to perform as it would be to watch, and by all accounts, he succeeded in doing so.
