Hamilton can't go too far wrong because American Idiot is such a killer collection of songs.
A fast-paced, thoroughly entertaining if hardly trenchant show biz documentary ...
"Broadway Idiot" has the controlled quality of something created to showcase the work and its participants only in the best possible light.
Fans of Green Day might find it harder to get the same rush out of the band's music after watching this extended, self-congratulatory PR plug for the 2009 stage adaptation of their 2004 album, "American Idiot."
Audience Reviews for Broadway Idiot
While mildly redundant and somewhat self-aggrandizing, it's also pleasantly heartfelt and works wonders as a powerhouse advertisement for the impressive stage production.
An exhilarating rockdoc about how one of the most acclaimed albums of the past 20 years got adapted to Broadway. If you're a fan of Green Day or musicals, I'd check this out.
Or... No, that's actually a pretty good name...
For fans of musicals, Green Day, or great documentaries, Broadway Idiot tells the story of Billie Joe Armstrong, the rock star, transforming to Billie Joe Armstrong, the playwright. I've heard many talk about the film as being a PR stunt, but I thought it was great. As a fan of Green Day, especially a fan of their 2004 masterpiece American Idiot, it was fun to watch the process of turning this album into a large scale Broadway musical. It probably won't be interesting to you if you're not into Green Day, but if you are, you have to check this out.
