I caught it on SkyArts when it was shown a few days ago, and was pleasantly surprised. It was very well done; I thought maybe it would be a tad too much a sycophantic, self aggrandising ego-show ; but Green Day haevn't morphed into Bono/U2 or Jon BonJovi just yet, thankfully.
I remember the cries of surreality when it was mooted, announced, and then in theatre; a pop punk band, an album more-or-less literate if a bit naive in poltiical stance, and taking that to Broadway. However, it works, and it works bloody well!! The music - especially the uptemop, high octane numbers, worked brilliantly.
It's a well paced realisation of the project, and after viewing, you do come away with a respect, an understanding of the whole deal, and a wish to see it for yourself!
