What happens when you takePicture 2 a Tony Award-winning director and a Grammy Award-winning album and put it together on stage? The new musical American Idiot. Based on Green Day’s politically charged hit album, this rock opera is moving to the big stage of NYC after an amazingly successful run in Berkeley, California. It is about a group of young, working-class men who come to America from the Middle East and find themselves in the confusion of post-9/11 America. It’s the same great storyline in NYC, but with a twist; Michael Mayer, the director of the smash Spring Awakening, will also be directing this cutting edge musical.
