Stage Addiction: Spring is Awakening (All Over Again)

Here's the TV spot for American Idiot, hands down the most interesting of the dozen or so new offerings bound for Broadway this spring. Based on the landmark album by Green Day, it shares a sensibility and sound (not to mention a director and a lead actor) with 2007's Tony winner Spring Awakening? Can lightning strike twice? Tell me what you think in the comments. (Hey, wanna go to opening night and meet the band?)



Musicals not your thing? Let me suggest two hot properties to warm up your spring ticket frenzy: A Behanding in Spokane, the celeb-stuffed world premiere beginning February 15 by Martin McDonagh (The Pillowman, The Lieutenant of Inishmore), and Red, which my London connections tell me is the most astonishing play they've seen in years. By John Logan (Never The Sinner, the screenplay of Sweeney Todd), it begins previews at the Golden in March.
