A number of you wrote in with the news that Green Day's rock opera, American Idiot, will soon be premiering as a live musical. Set to run from September 4th through October 11th, the musical was adapted by the band with Michael Mayer, the Tony Award-winning director of "Spring Awakening."

The show will be featured at the Berkeley Repertory Theater in California. The group themselves are a little shocked to see it come together with frontman Billie Joe Armstrong commenting:

It doesn't make a lot of sense. but that's what I love about it. When people see it, it's going to be my wildest dream.
