(CNN) - The band Green Day has come a long way since their big break in 1994 with an album called, "Dookie."
September 11th changed their approach to music and they released back-to-back albums that defied their simple roots, with more rock opera than punk rock.
Now, those two records, "American Idiot" and "21st Century Breakdown," have become a Broadway musical. The show is also called "American Idiot" and it opens tonight after a month of previews.
Our John Roberts had a chance to talk with the band, the cast, and the director about how it all came together.
