From punk rock mosh pits and sold-out stadiums to the Great White Way, this electrifying documentary follows Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong as he transforms his mega-hit album, “American Idiot,” into a staged Broadway musical. The film goes behind the scenes to reveal the creative choices and challenges made by Billie Joe and Tony Award-winning director Michael Mayer to create the thrilling and one-of-a-kind musical experience. Allowing access to rehearsals and more, “Broadway Idiot” provides a unique window into the art of theater, as rock stars and stage stars collide. See how Green Day transformed Broadway, and how the world of theater transformed Billie Joe.
