I saw this rock opera at the Orpheum last weekend.


From the SF Weekly show review:

"American Idiot is a valuable work. It's blunt, loud, free of nuance, and a reminder of the uncanny power of three power chords and a soaring melody. And it's good fun. So anyone complaining about Green Day selling out for making a musical should see the production first. The punk rockers didn't bend to Broadway for this -- Broadway bended to them."

Great music, great staging, memorable acting, and one of the best shows I've ever seen.

(I'm a fan of Wicked, Chess, Cats, Les Mis, Phantom, and Book of Mormon, too. Broadway ftw!)
