BWW Reviews: Green Day's AMERICAN IDIOT at SoLuna StudioBWW Reviews: Green Day's AMERICAN IDIOT at SoLuna Studio
by Melissa Giordano - Aug 5, 2015

When Green Day's American Idiot arrived on Broadway in 2010, it received a mixed response. When I saw the OBC, I thought they were absolutely stunning and found the book, like everyone else, safe. Furthermore, you have the hard rocking score that is Green Day's Grammy winning album that the musical is derived from. Overall, it was an enjoyable experience seeing it on the Great White Way and I am delighted Hauppauge's SoLuna Studio has added it to their summer season. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Green Day's AMERICAN IDIOT is A Mixed Bag at BeckBWW Reviews: Green Day's AMERICAN IDIOT is A Mixed Bag at Beck
by Roy Berko - Jul 14, 2015

Local theatres each tend to have a niche audience based on the venue's play selection. Dobama leans toward intellectual contemporary which are having their local premiers. convergence-continuum tilts toward off-beat writers and plots, many with homosexual themes. Cleveland Public Theatre thrives on a diet of creative, often devised theater offerings. Beck Center for the Arts is noted as the place for family offerings and scripts that appeal to the more conservative tastes of its older patrons (e.g., 'Mary Poppins,' 'Beauty and the Beast' and 'She Loves Me.')
