Watch: Green Day Musical Hits the Stage in 'Broadway Idiot' Doc Trailer
Last summer, we learned that two new documentaries following the rock band Green Day were in the works, with one aiming for a release at Sundance in 2013. However, that didn't come to fruition, and neither of the documentaries have been heard from since. But a different doc featuring Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong as he attempts to turn the band's album American Idiot into a Broadway musical (which could also hit the big screen) is arriving this week on iTunes and limited theaters. For fans of the band and the musical, Broadway Idiot looks like a great look behind the curtain, literally and figuratively. Watch!
Here's the trailer for Doug Hamilton's Broadway Idiot, originally from Apple:
Broadway Idiot follows Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong as he works with Broadway veterans to turn his hit album, American Idiot, into a Broadway musical. The film shows the creative choices and challenges made by Billie Joe and Tony-winning director Michael Mayer to create the one-of-a-kind musical experience. The debut feature film from director Doug Hamilton ("American Masters" and "Frontline") grants insider access to the actors’ rehearsals, the creative team’s process and also live performances that reveal Billie’s transformation from rock star to Broadway star. The film arrives on iTunes and limited theaters on October 11th.
