The American Idiot musical is set to begin previews on September 4th in Berkeley, California, and prep for the Green Day-inspired production is kicking into high gear: tickets for the limited run (scheduled through October 11th) are selling quickly, the Berkeley Repertory Theatre blogged a sneak peek at the show’s stage (revealing the set required extra support to accommodate its size and its massive walls will be covered in rock posters) and the show’s lead, John Gallagher, Jr. tweeted the cast had its first full-band rehearsal last night.

Idiot weaves Green Day’s punk opera together with established and up-and-coming stars of the theater world — but these are no ordinary musical theater actors. Many boast their own pop music careers, and several have starred in rock musicals including Spring Awakening, Hair and the Queen-based musical We Will Rock You: Check out the cast’s resumes, photos and videos of their live performances.
