For my most recent story, I covered the rehearsal process of BU On Broadway’s production of American Idiot. BU On Broadway is one of Boston University’s premier theater groups, which puts up three musicals per semester.
Whether you’re a first time actor, a huge theater fan, or simply love to sing and dance, there is something for everyone in BU On Broadway. If acting isn’t your thing, there are plenty of opportunities behind the scenes as well, with stage-managing and tech options.
This semester I have had the pleasure of acting in BU’s production of American Idiot, straight from Broadway. The smash-hit musical tells the story of three lifelong friends as they struggle with pursuing their dreams and leaving the safety of their suburban town. Complete with smash-hits from the Green Day album, rockin’ dance numbers, and an outrageously talented cast, American Idiot is sure to be a show that you do not want to miss.
Check out my preview video to see what the rehearsal process has been like and hear from the director, Sarah Gibson (COM ’18) herself.
