I think it was Jack Black (or maybe AC/DC) who once said it’s a long way to the top if you want to rock and roll. Black sang those rocktacular words in Richard Linklater’s ‘School of Rock,’ the 2003 about a struggling musician who becomes a substitute teacher at a prep school, and then begins to lead his students as they form a band. The movie was a surprise hit in theaters, and it’s already in development as a Nickelodeon TV show. But it’s long way to the top will culminate late next year, when ‘School of Rock’ hits the Great White Way as a Broadway show.
