According to Berkeley Rep, "American Idiot" (see SFist's review here) has turned out to be the highest grossing show in the theater's history, with the biggest one-day gross and the largest advance sales of any show in all their 41 years in operation. Given its popularity, they've extended the show another two weeks, to a must-close date of November 15th. As we suspected, beyond the Green Day fans, it's a raucous and well-staged affair that's an easy crowd-pleaser, especially for young audiences. We just hope they're doing something to flesh out the story before the show moves on to face New York critics. Get your tickets here, and as always, everyone under the age of 30 can get half-price (starting at $19) if they just say so over the phone and show ID at the box office.
