GREEN DAY'S AMERICAN IDIOT

Book & Lyrics By Billy Joe Armstrong   |   Book By Michael Mayer   |   Music & Lyrics By Green Day

Directed By Jason Bayle   |   Music Direction By Brian Breen   |   Rated R

 

Green Day’s powerhouse album is brought to life in this electric-rock musical of youthful disillusionment.  The two-time TONY Award-winning hit musical Green Day’s American Idiot, based on the 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 quickly diverge 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.
