Greenday Album To Be Turned Into A Musical

Green Day's 'American Idiot' album is set to be turned into a musical. Yep, you read that right.

According to The New York Times, work on the show began in secret in 2008 in order to work out orchestration and choreography. Now, with the thumbs up from the band, the show will go into full production ahead of its premiere at the Berkeley Reportory Theatre on 4 Sep, where it will then run until 11 Oct.

Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong said: “It doesn't make a lot of sense, but that's what I love about it. When people see it, it's going to be my wildest dream. It's not the most linear story in the world”.
