The American Idiot set is taking shape on the stage of the Roda Theatre, and it's pretty extraordinary. We can't show you the top-secret details just yet, but we can take you into the Roda and show you...
The Roda lobby is crammed full of equipment crates. Seeing as how American Idiot is bursting with music by Green Day, it's probably not surprising to learn that this show features more sound equipment than any other show in the Roda's history.
Depending on the show, the space under the Roda stage doesn't usually house a whole lot of gear. For American Idiot, the space is transformed into something out of NASA -- the amount of equipment down there is staggering.
And though we can't show you the actual stage, Lisa Lázár, one of our scenic artists, is blogging about the creation of the set, which is covered in rock posters, flyers, and related images. Check out her post on the set in its early stages.

wow...what a job for the sound and lights person...you need a map for all that audio and electric equipment.
This looks like so much fun. Photos like this and blogs like Lisa's remind me why I do design and tech. A dream and a nightmare rolled into one. That rack is insane! I wonder if all the processing equipment is under the deck... the sound on this show will be amazing. I really can't wait to see what the lighting is like!
Boah, such much equipment! Just see how many person are behind a band! Many fans forget it and grump about ticketprice, often wrongly:(
