About this show

American Idiot, called "thrillingly raucous" and "emotionally charged" by Charles Isherwood of The New York Times, features the music of Green Day and the lyrics of its lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong. The book is by Armstrong and Michael Mayer, and direction is by Tony Award®-winner Mayer ("Spring Awakening"). "Since its inception, audiences have been surprised by the emotional journey the show takes them on, told almost exclusively through Green Day's songs, including many they are already familiar with and love," said Tom Hulce, producer. The musical features the hits "Boulevard of Broken Dreams," "21 Guns," "Wake Me Up When September Ends," "Holiday" and the blockbuster title track, "American Idiot" from Green Day's 2004 Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum album, plus several songs from Green Days 2009 album release "21st Century Breakdown," and an unreleased love song, "When It's Time."
