School of Rock goes Broadway: A Conversation with Alex Brightman

Over the holiday break, I got the chance to talk with Alex Brightman, star of the new hit Broadway show School of Rock, which is based on the 2003 movie starring Jack Black. Brightman, who plays Dewey Finn, talked about the casting process, how he’s gotten to re-shape an already iconic role, his trip to Indiana University and more when we sat down before a Saturday night performance in the always packed Winter Garden Theatre.
