Hot on the heels of across-the-board A-grade report cards from most New York-based critics, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s new musical School Of Rock announced plans for a West End opening next fall. A U.S. tour is also planned, to begin in the fall of 2017.

“I am thrilled to announce that we are confirming a West End production of School Of Rock – The Musical,” said Lloyd Webber in a release from his publicists. “We have had such a great time in the U.S. staging the world premiere and now that we have opened on Broadway, I am delighted to be focusing on the next chapter in the show’s journey.”

The show, starring Alex Brightman in the role that made a star of Jack Black, was warmly embraced by the New York critics Monday morning and looks like Lloyd Webber’s first hit following a series of misfires including The Woman In White and Love Never Dies, a sequel to The Phantom Of The Opera.

The show is produced on Broadway by Lloyd Webber’s Really Useful Group with Warner Music Group & Access Industries, The Shubert Organization and The Nederlander Organization. Nina Lannan and Madeleine Lloyd Webber are Executive Producers. No further details about the London production were on offer.
