American Idiot Musical Premiere
Posted by Delfina

~A couple photos of the boys at the American Idiot premiere last night [1, 2]. There’s a review from the Mercury News but it’s not very enthusiastic at all: “The music sounds stale, sung by more than a dozen actors that have rehearsed the original fire right out of the songs.”

Actually, the San Jose Mercury News was quite positive. The quote you are using is from Jim Harrington on A & E Interactive(I probably have that wrong, but you can google it). Also want to say that I really enjoy your site — really thoughtful, and appeals to this 50’s+ GD fan

When will I EVER double-check before posting?! Sorry, both were from the Mercury News. Jim H is the rock critic. The positive review was by the theatre critic. Now, hope I didn’t get THAT messed up!

Thanks oldrocker. ;) I appreciate your nice words.

The other review had not been posted yet when I posted this, and I haven’t had a chance until now to update with many newer reviews, posted here:
