Destination: From Punk Rock to the Great White Way
Doug Hamilton’s electrifying documentary goes behind the scenes to follow Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong as he pensively observes and then begins to participate in the transformation of Green Day’s mega-hit album, “American Idiot,” into a staged Broadway musical. Allowing access to rehearsals and more, “Broadway Idiot” provides a unique window into the art of theater as raw and visceral rock music become characters and story for the stage. Unrated. 80 Min.
