Never in a million years did I ever think I would hear Green Day music on Broadway. Yet here we are at the start of a new decade and American Idiot, a musical based on the Grammy Award winning album is set to begin previews on Broadway on March 24 at the St. James Theatre. The show which played in September at Berkeley Rep was a critical and financial success extending twice before playing it's final performance on November 15, 2009. Here is a brief description of the show.
"American Idiot follows working-class characters from the suburbs to the city to the Middle East, as they seek redemption in a world filled with frustration — an exhilarating journey borne along by Green Day's electrifying songs. This high-octane show includes every song from the album, as well as several new songs from '21st Century Breakdown.'"
The show is being directed by Tony Award winner Michael Mayer(Spring Awakening)with choreography by Olivier Award winner Steven Hoggett.Being a composer myself and working on my own rock musical I am so excited to see how this show will do. This years Tony race just got very interesting. Until next time theatre fans.
