With only about a week before the first American Idiot preview on Broadway, excitement is running high for this Berkeley Rep-born rock musical.

Over at the official American Idiot website, there's a fantastic new video featuring director Michael Mayer, Green Day front man Billie Joe Armstrong, and actors John Gallagher, Jr. and Rebecca Naomi Jones. Check it out.

And then we have the the show's interns, Jamie and Amanda. Jamie was a Berkeley Rep intern last season, and we love her and are thrilled she followed her passion to New York and is once again working with the Idiot crew, who came to adore her last fall at Berkeley Rep.

Jamie and Amanda have filed their first Idiot intern video blog. Granted, there's not a lot of insider information, but their enthusiasm is infectious, and they do take us inside the St. James Theatre and allow us a few minutes with Rebecca, whose pink streak looks even grander and pinker than it did in Berkeley.

Enjoy the video.

American Idiot begins previews March 24 and opens April 20 at the St. James Theatre. Click here for ticket information.
