Hey Drama Club Members, take those safety pins out of your face and stay awhile! This week, Logo Drama Club got totally punk and bumrushed the final sound check for the new Broadway musical, American Idiot. After my cameraman and I downed some brewskies, rushed the stage, and were kindly escorted out of the St. James Theater by two security guards and a gentleman with a taser, we managed to snag some interviews with some folks involved with this show based on Green Day songs.
In fact, International Superstars, Green Day, were there and feeling especially chatty. Who knew their favorite musicals include Drowsy Chaperone, Phantom of the Opera, and Bye Bye Birdie? John Gallagher Jr. and director, Michael Mayer, were also on hand to give us the low-down on this new musical dealing with angsty, post-9/11 American youth.
Billie Joe = big major showtune lover. For reals!
