112323844_ecc2176a89Remember when we told you about Berkeley Repertory Theatre’s amazing upcoming season [1]? Well, get out your studded belts and rub some glue into that faux-hawk: The company is also premiering a play adaptation [2] 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 [3] is centered around a number of characters seeking “redemption in a conflicted world.”

Which is clearly about as punk-rock as it gets.
