Rock out to Green Day’s American Idiot in a high-octane stage adaptation of the Grammy Award-winning multi-platinum album. The musical was designed to send bold social messages with every song from the album, plus several others from the punk band’s follow-up release, 21st Century Breakdown.
The story revolves around Johnny, Will, and Tunny – three disgruntled young men searching for more thrills in life. Johnny and Tunny leave the suburban life and get disillusioned with the city. Will is forced to stay to work out his relationship with his pregnant girlfriend, Heather. Through a strange twist of fate, Tunny joins the military and is shipped off to war. Johnny finds himself trapped between a seductive love interest with Whatsername, and a hazardous new friendship with his alter-ego, St. Jimmy.
An epic rock opera, American Idiot The Musical features little dialogue and rides the edgy beats and lyrics of Green Day’s energy-filled album to execute the story line.
