broadway idiots

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!
Much appreciated.

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."

the sweetest thing ever.




anonymous asked:

What are the green day ' eras ' and could u give example pics?

i usually separate most green day eras by album sound, as this band has always been evolving and changing their sound every time they release music. anyways here’s how i personally divide their eras starting from 1987 to current day

1987 - 1993 (the early days, pre-dookie)

includes the band’s formation, their first show, being signed to lookout records, releasing their first album, playing in backyards/basements to crowds of 5 people and eventually gilman, tré cool joining the band, the release of kerplunk

1994 - 1996 (rise to fame and “burning out”)

includes the release of dookie, green day becoming a household name overnight, woodstock 94′, the release of insomniac, touring nonstop for over a year and eventually having to cancel their tour due to exhaustion, as billie said it was a very confusing and overwelming time for the entire band

1997 - 2003 (experimental sounds and personal reflection)

this era is sort of long but is one of my favourites as i truly believe it is what allowed green day to be the band that they are today. it includes nimrod, warning, international superhits, and shenanigans. the release of songs such as good riddance, the band began to write whatever music they wanted to without caring about what others had to say

2004 - 2011 (reinvention, revival, and rock operas)

includes the release of american idiot and the “revival” of green day. the previous experimental era gave green day the guts to do something absolutely crazy and a full blown rock opera was the result. this era also includes bullet in a bible, foxboro hot tubs, another rock opera 21st century breakdown, american idiot on broadway, and awesome as fuck

2012 - 2015 (the trilogy and a well deserved break)

this era was a hectic one as green day released three albums in a row within the span of 5 months. it was a rough time personally for the members of green day, battling things such as addiction and cancer. this era also includes a very long (and needed) break for the band members, focus on their families and personal lives, as well as green day being inducted into the rock and roll hall of fame

2016 - now (revolution radio and happy days)

this is the era we are in now, as well as my personal favourite. green day has said themselves that they have never been healthier and happier after a long couple of years and i’m very excited to see what other great things this band will achieve in the following years. green day is currently on tour playing in australia

catch me i’m falling //  songs from the stage for those theatre kids who can’t remember how to be okay

before the lobotomy/extraordinary girl - american idiot // without you - RENT // see i’m smiling - the last five years // everything else - next to normal // quiet - matilda the musical // how did we come to this? - the wild party // days and days - fun home // no more - into the woods // as long as he needs me - oliver! // i dreamed a dream - les miserables // touch me - spring awakening // lifeboat - heathers the musical // i miss the mountains - next to normal // the moon - once the musical // drink with me - les miserables / 21 guns - american idiot // say it to me now - once the musical // light (finale) - next to normal

listen here

I remember hearing in an interview with John Gallagher Jr. where he said that every time Billie would go on as Saint Jimmy he would yell backstage to get into character and that everyone in the theater could hear it. And when that song was recorded in one of the performances with Billie, you can hear Billie screaming his head off in the background before he came on as Saint Jimmy.

musical theatre meme → [4/5] group songs → 21 guns
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.

The ‘Wicked’ movie is on its way — but these 9 musicals should hit theaters first

Wicked, is making its slow march to theaters. In an interview with Film Divider, producer Marc Platt let slip that a movie version of the show could be in theaters by 2016. Winnie Holzman (My So-Called Life, the original Wicked musical’s book) is currently writing the script and Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot) may direct, but Platt warns that nothing is set in stone.

Wicked is a fine musical. But before Hollywood goes and pours its cash into Elphaba and Glinda, it might want to consider these nine shows, which would not only make way better movies, but way more important ones.
