The Green Day frontman is currently working writing a new play inspired by the great Shakespeare.
According to Spin:
“The one time star of the American Idiot Broadway musical will reportedly write new songs for the company’s take on These Paper Bullets, a rock’n’roll version of William Shakespeare’sMuch Ado About Nothing. Set to have its world premiere in March 2014, the play follows a band from Liverpool, England as they navigate romance and London’s music scene. These Paper Bullets was adapted by Rolin Jones and will be directed by Jackson Gay.”
The “Oh Love” trio are currently in Austin for the SXSW Film & Music Festival where they will be having a special showing of their Quatro documentary. They’re also supposed to unveil the world premiere of Broadway Idiot today, which is a film about the band’s journey making American Idiot from the album to the play.
