About the Artist
SCHOOL OF ROCK:
ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER, the man who brought rock and romance to Broadway, is back with a hilarious new hit. SCHOOL OF ROCK is a New York Times Critics’ Pick and “AN INSPIRING JOLT OF ENERGY, JOY AND MAD SKILLZ!” (Entertainment Weekly). Reuters raves “ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER HAS BROADWAY ROCKING!”
Based on the film, the musical follows Dewey Finn, a failed, wannabe rock star who decides to earn a few extra bucks by posing as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school. There he turns a class of straight-A students into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band.
SCHOOL OF ROCK features 14 new songs from ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER, all the original songs from the movie and Broadway’s first-ever live kids rock band. Vanity Fair cheers, “FISTS OF ALL AGES SHALL BE PUMPING!”
The record-breaking musical spectacular by ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER that has captivated audiences in over 30 countries and 15 languages is back on Broadway!
Based on T.S. Eliot’s “Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats,” this wonderfully imaginative show features breathtaking music, including one of the most treasured songs in musical theater — “Memory.” Winner of 7 Tony Awards® including BEST MUSICAL, CATS tells the story of one magical night when an extraordinary tribe of cats gathers for its annual ball to rejoice and decide which cat will be reborn. Featuring a cast of beautiful dancers and singers and the original Tony-winning sets and costumes, this beloved hit is still Broadway’s most unforgettable event. Experience CATS for the first time as it begins a new life for a new generation… or let it thrill you once again! LET THE MEMORY LIVE AGAIN!
THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA:
For over 25 years, PHANTOM has been the Broadway musical all others are measured against. The timeless story, the unforgettable score, an undeniable obsession that could never die.
