Tonight maegwynn and I went to the opening night of the Raleigh run of the broadway musical Green Day's American Idiot. Runs tomorrow through Sunday locally and elsewhere in the US afterward. If you even vaguely like the album, or the kind of music of the album, you may like this. Overall, elements of the show's staging brought to mind Julie Taymor's film Across the Universe.
Preshow dinner was a food truck rodeo in the park out front, chose and liked ChirbaChirba Dumplings over the other options. We admired the work of an artist painting the above picture over dinner.
We had excellent seats: two left of centerline, front row of the pit, which played in nicely as one of the female leads gave maegwynn her guitar pick after the final number of the show as everyone left the stage.
Those were taken after the final bow, and from my seat.
