  • Pay for a Broadway show and get a Green Day set as an added bonus. That is, at least, what the capacity crowd at the April 22 performance of American Idiot got.

    Following the full guitar-equipped cast's bow and encore, the curtain rose once more, and a "roadie" (on Broadway: union stagehand) brought out two microphone stands. The decibel level rose even higher as Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt and Tre Cool — aka Green Day — took to the stage. (Their presence in the house was no secret as those seated in the orchestra section of the St.

    Green Day's 'American Idiot' Musical Is Political And Personal
    'It's about people becoming lost and just trying to find their way,' Billie Joe Armstrong tells MTV News.

    By now, you're probably aware that Green Day's 2004 album American Idiot was a fairly, uh, political affair. And while the Broadway version of the record doesn't exactly shy away from the topic, it also reveals a side of the music that most probably never realized was there in the first place: the personal.

    "I think, politically, American Idiot, when we were writing it, it was trying to make sense out of a big mess,"

If the band being moved to tears by the production isn't motivation enough to make the trip to NYC to see the show, well, we figured we'd let the cast and crew tell you why you should check it out.

    Rage and love, those consuming emotions felt with a particularly acute pang in youth, all but burn up the stage in “American Idiot,” the thrillingly raucous and gorgeously wrought Broadway musical adapted from the blockbuster pop-punk album by Green Day.
