Green Day have confirmed that their 2004 album “American Idiot” will be turned into a musical.
It's now been confirmed that the production will run from September 4 to October 11 at the Berkley Repertory Theatre in California.The musical is a collaboration between the band and Michael Mayer, the director of hit musical Spring Awakening , which recently opened in London.
Billie Joe Armstrong told New York Times: “It doesn't make a lot of sense, but that's what I lve about it. When people see it, it's going to be my wildest dream.”
If the run in Berkley is a success, a move to Broadway looks likely.
Don't forget Green Day's new album '21st Century Breakdown' is released worldwide on May 15th.
