Post American Idiot: A Green Day Musical.... SERIOUSLY?!?!?!
Seriously?!?!?! That's all I can say right now. I read about it on Broadway.com. If that comes to Broadway I will be livid... pissed... mad... UPSET!

It's not a jukebox show- it's a stage adaptation of Green Day's rock opera "American Idiot." They just, like Jesus Christ Superstar, Tommy, Evita and Chess before it, released the album first.

Yeah, this has been gestating for a while...

I'll be very interested in seeing how it's adapted for the stage.

I'm seeing it this weekend and am trying not to read any reviews, but most of them have been positive.
