Why? This thread is titled " Billie Joe Armstrong to write songs for the Yale Repertory Theatre Show" which is what that song is...a song he wrote for the Yale Repertory Theatre. Now there is a new thread about Billie "releasing" a "solo song". Ok.

It's an exciting thing that probably interests more people than just the ones who are interested in the musical in general so no harm having a thread to highlight it. You have a point about the title though, I'm going to alter it.

For all the New Yorkers out there, the show is not on sale to the general public yet, only to members.  However, they have a membership plan where you get 4 tickets to use in any combination of any of their productions.  I need 4 tickers, so I have a call out to them to find out if I can use all four tickets to one production.  They won't be in until tomorrow though.  That costs $229, as opposed to $300 at full price.  The tickets are $75 each.  And opening night is already sold out.  :(

For any interested NY'ers, the tickets for These Paper Bullets are on sale only for members right now.  However, I needed 4 tickets.  There is a membership option that allows gives you 4 tickets to use with any production they have and you can use them to one show.  The cost is $229 for the membership and the tickets are regularly $75, so that is a pretty significant savings.  The tickets are on sale to the general public on September 30.  However, if anyone is interested you might want to get together with other GDC'ers because this membership package is a big cost savings.

Also I got first row tickets to the date I wanted, but opening night is already sold out.

“BILLIE JOE ARMSTRONG, RETURNING TO THE THEATER AFTER HIS SUCCESS WITH THE MUSICAL AMERICAN IDIOT, HAS WRITTEN PASTICHE SONGS FOR THE OCCASION THAT ARE TOUCHED BY HIS BRILLIANCE!”

BILLIE JOE ARMSTRONG

BILLIE JOE ARMSTRONG (Music and Lyrics) is the front man of the Grammy Award®-winning, multi-platinum band Green Day.  Green Day’s albums include 1039/Smooth Out Slappy HoursKerplunk; 1994’s Dookie, which sold 15 million copies and garnered their first Grammy (and inspired a raft of imitators); InsomniacNimrodWarning; 2004’s landmark American Idiot, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard chart, spawned five hit singles, and won two Grammys, including Best Rock Album; 21st Century Breakdown (Grammy Award, Best Rock Album); and 2012’s consecutively released ¡Uno!¡Dos!, and ¡Tré! (as well as the behind the scenes DVD,¡Cuatro!). Last year, Armstrong and Norah Jones released Foreverly, a tribute to the Everly Brothers’ 1958 album, Songs Our Daddy Taught Us. The Tony and Grammy winning musical American Idiot, featuring lyrics by Armstrong, music by Green Day, and a book written by Armstrong and director Michael Mayer, debuted at Berkeley Rep in 2009 and opened on Broadway the next year. Throughout its run, Armstrong made cameo appearances in the role of St. Jimmy. The recent documentary, Broadway Idiot, chronicled his road to the Great White Way. His other film and TV credits include This is 40Nurse Jackie, and the upcoming feature films, Like Sunday, Like Rain and Geezer greenday.com
