It’s been more than three years since the Green Day-fueled American Idiot debuted on Broadway. Now a documentary about that meeting of the mediums is set for a theatrical and VOD release. Digital entertainment curator FilmBuff is partnering with Abramorama to open Broadway Idiot on October 11 exclusively in New York followed a week later by a North American expansion and VOD release on all major platforms. Director Dug Hamilton’s film follows Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong as he works with Main Stem producers to bring the band’s 2004 album American Idiot into a Broadway musical — from creative decisions through performances. It premiered at the South by Southwest Festival in March.
