Michael Mayer Set For BROADWAY IDIOT Screening Q&A, 10/28
AMERICAN IDIOT documentary BROADWAY IDIOT is currently available on demand and in select movie theater showings around the country and the director of the Broadway show itself will speak about his experiences in bringing Green Day's memorable rock musical to the stage - and, now, to the screen via this revealing new doc - on Monday as part of a special screening of the film.
Michael Mayer will participate in a Q&A with New York Times film critic Janet Maslin at the Jacob Burns Film Center on October 28 at 7:30 PM.
More information on the special event is available at the official site here.
The official synopsis of BROADWAY IDIOT is as follows: "BROADWAY IDIOT follows Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong from a punk rock concert at Madison Square Garden to the opening of his musical American Idiot on Broadway - only ten blocks away, but worlds apart. From behind the curtain share in the crazy journey of turning the mega-hit album into a punk rock musical - and ultimately see how the world of theater transformed Billie Joe."
AMERICAN IDIOT opened on Broadway in 2010 and closed after 421 performances. The production was directed by Michael Mayer and the original Broadway cast included John Gallagher Jr., Matt Caplan, Stark Sands, Michael Esper, Rebecca Naomi Jones, Mary Faber, Christina Sajous and Tony Vincent. Two US tours and a UK tour have followed.
