can you hear the sound of hysteria?

american idiot, the green day musical based on the albums 21st century breakdown and american idiot, begins previews tonight at the st. james theatre in new york. despite some flaws, this was a jaw-dropper at berkeley rep last fall, and is already considered a front-runner for the tony award for best musical. it also looks likely to make the jump to the big screen, produced and/or directed by tom hanks.

sadly missing from the new york cast is matt caplan, whose tunny was one of the best things in the california production.

  1. I'll place my bet now that it takes the Tony awards for BEST MUSICAL.
