Still image from the film Broadway Idiot
Broadway Idiot follows Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong from a punk rock concert at Madison Square Garden to the opening of his musical American Idiot on Broadway - only ten blocks away, but worlds apart. Go backstage as Green Day takes on Broadway – and ultimately see how the world of theater transformed Billie Joe. (HD Cam. 78 min. Not rated.)

Director Doug Hamilton is scheduled to be present. He will introduce and discuss this ‘rough cut’ of his film, before it appears in festivals.
