'American Idiot' Adaptation On the Way
Tue, 31 Mar 2009 10:18:36
Green Day's sprawling concept album, 2004's American Idiot, is headed for the stage at Berkeley's Repertory Theater, as the opener of its 2009-10 season. Michael Mayer, the Tony-winning director of Spring Awakening, will guide the proceedings, as well as co-write alongside Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong. And the band's responsible for all the music. No word on whether the musical will eventually hit Broadway.
American Idiot sold more than 12 million copies worldwide and scored Grammy Awards for best rock album and record of the year.
