Broadway Buzz: American Idiot

American Idiot the Broadway Musical has already begun its previews on its new Broadway stage, the St.James Theatre. The musical opened September 2009 at Berkeley Rep to sold-out shows, which allowed them to extend the run of the show  two times. This broke box office records!

The musical is about a generation of young Americans in a post 9-11 world as they try to find meaning in their lives. This is a rock opera that uses all of Green Days music, all of the CD American Idiot and also a few from their new CD 21st Century Breakdown.

The cast is led  by Tony Award-winning  John Gallagher, Jr.(Spring Awakening) and is directed by Tony Award-winning director of Spring Awakening Michael Mayer. A high energy show is promised full of rock music and teen angst!

American Idiot opens on Broadway April 20, 2010. Don’t miss it.
