Remember when we told you about Berkeley Repertory Theatre’s amazing upcoming season? Well, get out your studded belts and rub some glue into that faux-hawk: The company is also premiering a play adaptation of Green Day’s “American Idiot.”
Complete with a cast of nineteen and an onstage band, and based on a book written by Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong and director Michael Mayer, the rock opera turned musical is centered around a number of characters seeking “redemption in a conflicted world.”
Which is clearly about as punk-rock as it gets.
