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 veterans to turn his mega-hit album, “American Idiot,” into a 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 making-of profile, “Broadway Idiot” is a portrait of a world-famous artist having the guts to try something totally new. The film grants insider access to the actors’ rehearsals, the creative team’s process and live performances that reveal Billie’s transformation from rock star to Broadway star. “Broadway Idiot” provides a unique window into the art of theater as rock stars and stage stars collide and create something never seen before.
