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 works with Broadway producers to turn 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 Grammy winner Billie Joe and Tony winning director Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening) to create the thrilling and one-of-a-kind musical experience. More than just a show, but a personal and transformative experience for Billie Joe, the film provides insider access to Billie's journey from rock star to Broadway star, dress rehearsals, performances and more. BROADWAY IDIOT provides a unique window into the art of theater as rock stars and stage stars collide and create something never seen before.
BROADWAY IDIOT will open for an exclusive New York engagement on October 11th and expand to theaters across the country on October 18th. FilmBuff will release the film on VOD day and date with its expanded theatrical release on October 18 in the US and Canada on all leading digital platforms including iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Cable Movies On Demand, Google Play, Xbox Video, Sony Playstation, Cinemanow and Vudu.
