‘Idiot’ gathering

Tuner's opening night party rocks

The “American Idiot” producers needed every inch of the humongous Roseland Ballroom for their April 20 opening-night party. How else could those arch-rivals Rosie O’Donnell and Donald Trump inhabit the same space without having to bump into each other? Edie Falco, Serena Williams, Tony Kushner, Ed Norton and a few hundred other bodies functioned as so many human cushions to separate the two towering egos.

Billie Joe Armstrong and his Green Day cohorts brought out the rock journos and photogs, helping to turn the event into something resembling the blowout Broadway preems of yore, and no one seemed to mind the hotdogs and Fritos Corn Chips as a graffiti artist on stage entertained the masses with his paint rollers and spray cans to the very unpunk-like strains of “Satisfaction” by the Rolling Stones.
