Punk rockers turned political commentators Green Day will hit Broadway today as their 2004 album American Idiot will be transformed into a full fledged production. The album shifted 12 million copies worldwide and won album of the year while criticizing the Bush administration going to war in Iraq.
Green Day bassist Mike Dirnt says of the play:
"All of us actually came to tears, because you don't get to see Green Day play live if you're actually in Green Day. But to see these voices and the way all the cast were singing, you just abandon hope of a tissue and let 'em stream. ... [We were like,] 'No, that's allergies, man!”
