A new music video for School of Rock — The Musical puts viewers right in the middle of the action.
The team behind the upcoming Broadway musical adaptation of the 2003 Jack Black-starring film has released an immersive 360-degree video for a number from the show, “You’re in the Band.” Set in a New York City classroom, the video was designed by the show’s composer Andrew Lloyd Webber and book writer Julian Fellowes (Downton Abbey) and will accompany the single released by Warner Bros. Records.
The video lets viewers scroll and watch various performers throughout the number, during which failed wannabe rock star Dewey Finn poses as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school and begins to turn his class into a rock band. It is best viewed on YouTube or Facebook — on mobile using the latest version of each app; and on desktop using the latest versions of Chrome, Firefox or Opera browsers.
School of Rock — The Musical, directed by Laurence Connor, begins previews at the Winter Garden Theatre on Nov. 9 ahead of its Dec. 6 opening. The show and its cast recording will feature a new score by Lloyd Webber and lyricist Glenn Slater, along with three songs from the immensely popular 2003 film. Rob Cavallo (American Idiot) produced the album (available Dec. 4) with Lloyd Webber.
