Just after American Idiot cast members took their final bows on the stage of the Roda Theatre, the work continued. A few days following the final performance on Nov. 15, the cast assembled at Green Day’s Jingletown recording studio. With Green Day producing, playing, and singing, they recorded a newly orchestrated (by Tom Kitt) version of “21 Guns.” I simply cannot stop listening to this awesome recording on Green Day’s website. Recorded by the cast of American Idiot from the Berkeley Repertory Theatre production on Dec. 9, 2009. Enjoy!
