The show stars Alex Brightman as rockstar wannabe Dewey Finn
Broadway musical School of Rock, written by Downton Abbey’s Julian Fellowes with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, has opened to mixed reviews.
The show, which was a hit 2003 film starring Jack Black, is about a wannabe rock star who poses as a teacher, forming a band with his students to enter a music contest.
The Guardian said the musical had “lost its mojo” and was “innocuous”.
The Hollywood Reporter, however, described it as a “crowd-pleaser”.
