American Idiot to Hit Cranford Dramatic Club Stage in February

Usually albums are created after a play is written. In the case of American Idiot, the album preceded the play. Green Day‘s album was their seventh and tells a story through its songs. The album won a Grammy Award in 2005 and inspired a Broadway musical. The Cranford Dramatic Club is taking on the unusual production which is nearly 100% music.

As the cast and crew prepare for the musical’s debut on February 12, Cranford Radio had the opportunity to speak with three of the leads, Ali Gleason (Whatsername), Bill Geltzeiler (Johnny) and Ben Simons (Will), as well as the director/choreographer Megan Ferentinos. We began by getting an overview of the play from Megan.
