Green Day's powerhouse album is brought to life in this electric-rock musical of youthful disillusion.
The two-time TONY Award-winning hit musical American Idiot, based on Green Day's GRAMMY Award-winning multi-platinum album, boldly takes the American musical where it's never gone before. This high-octane show includes every song from Green Day's album American Idiot, as well as several songs from follow-up release, 21st Century Breakdown.
Johnny, Tunny and Will struggle to find meaning in a post-9/11 world. When the three disgruntled men flee the constraints of their hometown for the thrills of city life, their paths are quickly estranged when Tunny enters the armed forces, Michael is called back home to attend familial responsibilities, and Johnny's attention becomes divided by a seductive love interest and a hazardous new friendship. An energy-fueled rock opera,American Idiot, features little dialogue and instead relies on the lyrics from Green Day's groundbreaking album to execute the story line.
American Idiot is a high concept show with strong social messages and endless creative possibilities. It will surely add an enticing edge to any theatre's season.
