Génèse du musical

The show's premiere production is scheduled to begin previews at the Winter Garden Theatre in New York, on 9 November 2015, with its official opening night coming on 6 December, with tickets going on sale on 11 June. The production had originally been slated to begin previews on 2 November. On January 19, 2015 the audition process opened for children ages nine through fifteen in cooperation with the School of Rock after-school educational program (which predated the film by several years) with open calls in New York City, at the Winter Garden theatre, with further calls in Los Angeles and Chicago.
On 29 May 2015, it was revealed that Alex Brightman would play the role of Dewey Finn, which was originated in the film by Jack Black and that developmental staged concerts would be held at the Gramercy Theatre in Manhattan, in June 2015, in front of a select audience. Further casting includes Sierra Boggess as headmistress Rosalie.
On 7 December 2015, following the show's Broadway opening, it was announced by Andrew Lloyd Webber that the show will transfer to the London Palladium in London's West End in autumn 2016, with performance dates to be announced in early 2016. A U.S. Tour was also announced which will start performances in late 2017. Youth production rights were opened for applications prior to the show opening on Broadway.

Commentaires :
Not since 1971 has Andrew Lloyd-Webber launched a show on Broadway before London's West End, so we can expect that this new production, that will mix songs from the movie with brand new songs by the iconic composer and lyricist Glenn Slater, will be a rockin' spectacular! Oh, and the book comes from Julian Fellowes, the writer of a "relatively unknown" TV show called Downtown Abbey. Nope, we've never heard of it either....
