Green Day's "American Idiot" Takes On The Big Stage, Broadway

Bye, Bye Berkely Repetory, Hello Broadway. Though the starting dates and location have yet to be announced, casting calls are auditioning talent for Green Day and Tony Award winner Micheal Mayer's brain child "American Idiot" to participate in the show's run on New York City's Broadway.

Casting was announced on November 9, but it has since been confirmed that "Idiot" will see some time on the big stage. Questions remain, when will it start? What famed Broadway theater will take on this unconventional musical? And will we be seeing new stars to fill the shoes of the San Francisco run of "Idiot?" Unfortunately, nothing has been confirmed as of yet.

The San Francisco "Idiot" brought in large crowds and even extended its show dates by 5 weeks to accommodate the uber-popularity the show had gained. However, Broadway is a whole other story. Will "Idiot" make it big, or just go home?

Check out the San Francisco Cast here, and perhaps some (or all) of these faces will grace the stages in New York City.

New information on the shows dates, theater location, and cast will be posted when it is confirmed.
