Interviewed by Access Hollywood, Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt, and Tré Cool shared some thoughts on turning American Idiot into a world-premiere theatrical event at Berkeley Rep:

And while we're on the subject, here are some links to help you catch up on what the world is already saying about American Idiot:

- The San Francisco Chronicle's Pink Section cover story on American Idiot.

- The SF Bay Guardian's fall preview cover story on American Idiot.

- Rolling Stone zeroes in on the incredibly talented American Idiot cast.


I love these videos...and the articles are so exciting too..I check twice a day to see what's new. On your multi-media section there was the radio interview from Powerhouse with Michael Mayer was very exciting and you can hear the excitement in his voice...I am getting so excited myself! beyond words can describe my excitement!
Can't wait until I see the finished play!
Good luck to all!

We've been Berkeley rep subscribers for 25 years, and remember some of the groundbreaking musicals like The Tooth of Crime. Being a very small part of the punk scene back in 1980-82, I was impressed by how this relatively new music echoed what was going on here 30 years ago. We really enjoyed the energy and the music of the show, some superb singing and excellent choreography. Bravo!

This is great entertainment. Gripping young characters wrestle with Left Coast life. Several solo scenes are riveting. Vocal and instrumental arranging is of the highest order and performed with fluid expertise. And with so much energy that the technical wizardry of the set design must soar and surprise to keep pace. Wow. What an evening!
American Idiot can show Bway and the Met a thing or two - a thing or two.
