All the deets:
“SHN (Shorenstein Hays Nederlander Theatres) and GOOGLE have announced a special live presentation with the cast of AMERICAN IDIOT as part of the Talks at Google series at their Mountain View headquarters. This very special event will take place this Thursday, June 14th at 3pm PST.
The event can be viewed around the world via livestream using the following link: http://www.youtube.com/user/
The presentation will feature a live performance of “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” as well as “21 Guns” by the entire cast. Viewers of the livestream can also participate in a Q & A by submitting questions directly to the American Idiot cast using the following link: https://www.google.com/
“The Talks at Google program is extremely excited to host cast and creative from the musical “American Idiot”, said Cliff Redeker, founder of the program. “This is the first time we’ve invited a Broadway show to the Googleplex and we’re proud to share the experience with the world through YouTube. We look forward to hosting many more Broadway productions together with SHN as the season unfolds.”
Talks at Google started in 2005 as an on-campus series to reach out to authors for exposure to the Google staff. The outreach has now surpassed Google employees and moved on to all who tune in via cyberspace. Everyone from then-candidate Barack Obama to superstar Lady Gaga has made their way to be on Talks at Google and it has since grown to include not just authors, but musicians, and now Broadway shows/performers as well!
AMERICAN IDIOT premiered at Berkeley Repertory Theatre in September 2009 and played through November of that year. In April 2010, the musical opened on Broadway where reviews were unanimously positive with Charles Isherwood of the New York Times calling the show “the most adventurous musical to brave Broadway in the past decade.”
