BWW Blog: Briana Cuoco of L.A.'s AMERICAN IDIOT - Can You Hear the Sound of Hysteria?
by Briana Cuoco - May 08, 2015

Guys. We're just over a week away from opening… WHAT?! The last month has gone by SO FAST. Over the last two weeks, our team has been creating our Jingletown from the ground up - literally. Most all of the graffiti are on the walls, our 7-Eleven is lit up and our beers, bongs and booze are all in their correct positions! They have built our stages and in doing so, have helped us create these characters lives. One couch serves as the best and worst times in Will's life, one mattress holds Johnny and Whatsername's entire love story, one table is Tunny's life-altering hospital bed and one town that changes completely from the beginning of the show to the end.

BWW Blog: Briana Cuoco of L.A.'s AMERICAN IDIOT - Forget Me Nots and Second Thoughts
by Briana Cuoco - April 22, 2015

Hey Idiots!! So, I have to start off with this past weekend… in short, it was BADASS. In the middle of our rehearsal schedule our entire cast (including our director and one of our producers!) got to do an "American Idiot" night at the Viper Room and we rocked it, if I do say so myself! We did songs from the show, as well as our own covers and originals. The place was packed and the energy was palpable with every one singing out some great songs from Green Day. We definitely made fans that will be coming to see the show when we open. Yay! It was also so cool to see every one of these amazing cast members go on stage, do their thing and kill it. Did I mention it happened to be the same day that Green Day was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame? F**king perfect.  (more...)
