Andrew Lloyd Webber’s School of Rock the Musical West End production has broken the box office record previously held by War Horse at the New London Theatre, while over on Broadway the show has smashed its own record at the Winter Garden Theatre taking more than $1.5 million at the box office over the festive period. It also expected to break its own records again in the US and UK this week.
On hearing the news, Lloyd Webber tweeted: “Congrats to the School of Rock teams for smashing box office records on both sides of the Atlantic. Keep sticking it to the man!”
The world premiere Broadway production opened in November 2015 and is currently booking until 5th February 2017. A national company will launch a US tour in the autumn of next year.
