These Paper Bullets! Cast Records Billie Joe Armstrong's "Follow You Around"

The Yale Repertory Theatre presents the world premiere of These Paper Bullets! featuring Fab Four-inspired songs by Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong. This "modish ripoff of William Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing" adapted by Rolin Jones ("Smash," "Weeds," "Friday Night Lights") reimagines the play's returning war veterans as a rock group from Liverpool that returns to Swinging ’60s London after conquering the U.S. The production features orchestrations and arrangements by Tom Kitt. Jackson Gay directs. Performances run through April 5 at the University Theatre. Here, cast members take to the studio to record Armstrong's Beatle-esque "Follow You Around."
