Friday Playlist: A Crazy Amount of Movie-to-Musical Broadway Showtunes in Honor of School of Rock
May 6th, 2016

This week, School of Rock creators Andrew Lloyd Webber, Glenn Slater, & Julian Fellowes all received Tony Award nominations for adapting Jack Black's 2003 film of the same name into a big, Broadway musical that rocks the house down and shows off some of the most talented kids Broadway's ever seen.
To celebrate SoR's successful jump from movie-to-musical, BroadwayBox put together a mega playlist of some other famous shows that started on the screen and ended up on the stage (like this season's other musical, Waitress). And in the interest of sanity and time, books-to-screen-to-stage got knocked off the list. Now turn up the volume and enjoy!
See the joyous Tony-nominated musical School of Rock at Broadway's Winter Garden Theatre.
