I believe in giving people bootlegs they really want, even if they have nothing to trade, because the whole point of bootlegs is making sure that people who were not able to see their favourite musical for whatever reason get to experience the parts of the show they don’t get from the soundtrack. Bootlegs expand the musical theatre audience to those who live far from New York, or don’t have the money to pay for tickets; people who just want to see their favourite actors or their favourite shows however they can. It is cruel to keep that from someone who so passionately loves musical theatre.
Broadway is all about inclusivity so include those people who are not privileged enough to go to Broadway!
No offence, but American Idiot is a musical masterpiece that not only portrays a time in America when
people were completely controlled by fear-fuelled media, but brought together the punk and broadway scene to discuss problems such as bigotry and capitalism in post 9/11 America and it has been coMPLETELY UNDERRATED BY THE BROADWAY COMMUNITY WHAT THE HELL
An interviewer was talking to Billie Joe right after the first of the musical , and he was completely at a loss for words and his eyes looked red as if he had been crying , Mike was there with Britt and so embraced him . Later Mike did a interview and said " I know Billie many years , I understand when he needs a moment of comfort."
Has there ever been a more appropriate time to revive a musical?
Edit: Okay so I see that a bunch of you thought this was real and that American Idiot was getting revived on Broadway and while I’m flattered that you thought my art was Broadway-quality (and this production definitely needs to happen😂) I just made this spur of the moment, as a fan of the show. Thanks for sharing/enjoying my work!

When you’re at the end of the road, and you’ve lost all sense of control. And your thoughts have taken their toll, when your mind breaks the spirit of your soul. Your faith walks on broken glass, and the hangover doesn’t pass. Nothing’s ever built to last. You’re in ruins.
