“American Idiot” Broadway Cast Recording Streaming NOW
If you haven’t heard yet, Green Day’s 2004 concept album about a post 9/11 America has inspired a stage musical, which is set to premier on Broadway. Like, NOW. Well, okay, technically it opens on April 20th, but that’s practically now.
The musical mixes songs from American Idiot and 21st Century Breakdown, both of which won Grammy Awards for Best Rock Album. The musical’s plot centers around three friends from a small town that encounter their own personal demons in a media obsessed, war ridden, jaded world where drugs, sex and violence are never that far away. It’s set in the present, by the way.
