Andrew Lloyd Weeber Struggles to Replace Alex Brightman? >>

Although his work in musicals like 'Cats,' 'The Phantom of the Opera' and 'Jesus Christ Superstar' have made Andrew Lloyd Webber a household name for more the 4-decades, the famous Broadway composer had almost forgotten what it was like to have a hit. Since 'School of Rock: The Musical' made its Broadway debut, the show's success, has Webber every bit as shocked as finding diamond in the rough and breakout star, Alex Brightman, to play the lead. In fact, it would seem that Webber has had some difficulties finding a worthy Dewey Finn replacement for the West End run -- recently postponing the show's London debut until the spring of 2017.
