A stage adaptation of the band’s highly successful American Idiot will be opening the 2009-10 season of the Berkeley Repertory Theater.

Billie Joe Armstrong co-wrote the show’s book with Spring Awakening’s Michael Mayer.

Operating in the same rock opera/concept vein as The Who’s Tommy and Pink Floyd’s The Wall, American Idiot is “a nihilistic coming-of-age story drenched in post-9/11 paranoia” following “disaffected contemporary American Everykid Jesus of Suburbia as he morphs into violent, drug-dealing alter-ego St. Jimmy and falls for anarchist girlfriend Whatsername.”

WOW. I think Mariah Carey should also have her own musical. Wouldn’t that be awesome? (Not at all…not in the slightest). For some reason I give a pass to Green Day.  Maybe it can be really creative and unique. They should blow up idiots on the stage hahah. That’ll bring in the crowd!
