American Idiot Musical (aka Things to Do in Berkeley When Punk is Dead)

green day musical

I’m not going to say that a “rock opera” can’t be punk rock. But I can’t lie… there’s something unsettling about Green Day’s “American Idiot” musical set to hit Berkeley Repertory Theatre in September. Look at that pic! Even Mike is all “Please get me outta here.”

Maybe I find it odd because I remember being 11 and listening to Dookie, singing “I’m taking pride In telling you to fuck off and die” and asking my parents the definition of “masturbation” thanks to Longview. Awkward. But I guess times have changed, and they did also claim to be a “Walking Contradiction” so I can’t say they didn’t warn us.

Anyway, you can see for yourself how seriously they’re taking the whole thing and check out its progress on the theatre’s blog here. Tickets are apparently selling fast, so if you’re in Berkeley and there’s nothing to protest, get yours fast.
