‘Idiot’ on Broadway

In a confluence of things that thrilled me at different points in middle school, Green Day is coming to Broadway.

American Idiot, which opened in Berkeley last fall, is based loosely on a 2004 album of the same name. In his review of the Bay Area production, Charles Isherwood called it “that rare and tricky creature, a true rock opera.” The show shares a star and production team with Spring Awakening, the last rock opera to bring teen angst to musical-theatergoers.

Previews begin March 24th at the St. James Theater.
