About These Paper Bullets!
Meet the Quartos. Ben, Claude, Balth, and Pedro. Their fans worship them. Scotland
Yard fears them. And their former drummer will stop at nothing to destroy them. Can
these fab four from Liverpool find true love in London and cut an album in seven nights?
These Paper Bullets! is a rocking and rolling version of Shakespeare’s
Much Ado About Nothing with a serious backbeat.
Adapted by Pulitzer Prize and Emmy Award nominated writer Rolin Jones (Friday
Night Lights, Weeds) and featuring new songs by Grammy Award winning
Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong, who wrote the Tony Award winning musical
American Idiot, These Paper Bullets! is directed by Jackson Gay,
who staged Jones’s The Intelligent Design of Jenny Chow at Yale Rep
