Q and A with John Gallagher on HBO go

 

MissJacquiR

Do you ever hang out with the ''Spring Awakening'' or ''American Idiot'' gang?

John Gallagher, Jr. says:

Certainly! There hasn't been any proper cast reunions lately but I stay close and in touch with many of the people I met doing those shows.

So, on December 16, 2010, John, Stark & Michael went "caroling" around the city. Their third stop was the Hard Rock Cafe, which put the guys on this landing above the store part of the restaurant.

One of my bus buddies said her mom and some friends so it in Joliet, Illinois recently and half the audience walked out.  She wanted to walk out too but she wasn't the driver in her group.  :(  Guess Joliet is not AI country.

I genuinely want to know two things: 1. What did they think they were about to see? and 2. At what point in the show do "walk-outs" happen?  Is it a particular moment that is too offensive, or just a slow realization of "this isn't my cup of tea"... I wonder.

 

If anyone has witnessed people walking out, I'd be curious to hear when and why.

She said they walked out after watching the sex and drug scenes.  I'm guessing these were subscribers and not single ticket buyers and probably had no idea what it was about.  She her mom didn't know and was quite shocked.  And yet this is the same woman that really enjoyed Book of Mormon.  Go figure.

Tom Kitt mentions "American Idiot" in an interview

 

And then you orchestrated and arranged the adaptation of Green Day's American Idiot, which was all about creating a piece where rock and theater meet.

The original album was conceived theatrically. It leaps out at you. Every chorus is rousing. Each song tells an individual story, but the entire album has a larger one. It's dramatic and sweeping. And the emotional content is always there, no matter what form the songs take. Even when the chorus repeats in "Wake Me Up When September Ends," the character needs to keep saying that.

You went back to the music world to do some arrangements on Green Day's studio album 21st Century Breakdown. It seems that while Elizabeth in If/Then sees things as either/or, you lean toward and/also.

I think it's important to get outside yourself whatever way you can. And it's a real compliment when someone thinks I can bring a new element to their music. I just got to work with Billie Joe Armstrong again on These Paper Bullets at Yale Rep. And getting out of my comfort zone can be a wonderful way to come up with new ideas. The more open you can be to different styles or genres, the more you can be true to a character or a moment in the story. Next to Normal is known as a rock musical, but there are also waltzes, classical piano. A rule I try to live by is, "Don't force the music on the musical."
