's acclaimed "American Idiot" musical has landed a run on Broadway. The production will open at New York's St. James Theatre at the end of March 2010. The show, directed by Michael Mayer and featuring songs from Green Day's albums "" and "", was a smash-success when it opened at the Berkeley Rep in California last year, 2009 - every night of its eight-week run was a sell-out.

A statement from Green Day frontman reads, "Experiencing American Idiot onstage in Berkeley was incredible... The musical arrangements are breathtaking. We've so proud that the show is coming to Broadway."

Reports suggest actor John Gallagher Jr. will reprise the lead role of Johnny when the musical opens on Broadway, but the cast has yet to be announced.
