American Idiot took its first steps at The Berkeley Rep in 2009, to a year-long Broadway run and an international5 year tour.
This project went well beyond the realms of traditional costume design, spawning various expressions of pop culture — a look at how the lights of Broadway can impact fashion, art, and retail.
From the windows of 5th Avenue to the red carpet, American Idiot generated a cascade of inspiration for designers, retailers, and even tattoo artists.
