Platinum ideas on a silver platter

September 20, 2009

Regarding the piece on the rock opera "American Idiot": ["From 'Idiot' to Opera," Sept. 13] All those talented people lending their voices do not compare to one Billie Joe Armstrong, but this is not about Green Day. This is a tribute to their work through the eyes of one man, Michael Mayer. As with "21st Century Breakdown," this is a case of platinum ideas served on a silver platter.

I believe its success is due to the fact that the "American Idiot" phenomenon was pulled from mass media before its time and has left the public thirsty for more. "American Idiot" is still as relevant today as it was five years ago.

Given the proper means, I am sure that many with a heartfelt interest could orchestrate a production of Armstrong's "American Idiot" to rival and surpass this vanilla vision.
