I received two tickets to School of Rock due to my relationship with The Tampa Bay Bloggers and theirs with the Straz Center for the Performing Arts. However, all opinions are my own.
While it’s difficult to imagine School of Rock without Jack Black, Joan Cusack, or the budding newbie Miranda Cosgrove, School of Rock the Musical, has pulled it off.
My daughters, now in their 20’s, spent many hours watching the 2003 movie with my husband, who gladly played the part of guitar-playing, rock and roll loving social misfit Jack Black.
We’re pretty big fans of Jack Black in my house, and I have to admit our favorite role of his was probably Nacho Libre. (Please don’t hold it against me.)
In the movie and the musical, we see Jack Black, or Dewey, kicked out of his band, and going nowhere sponging off his best friend and his girlfriend.
