About this show

The multi-Tony Award-winning hit musical American Idiot, based on Green Day's Grammy Award-winning multiplatinum album of the same name, boldly took the American musical where it had never gone before. The high-octane show includes every song from the American Idiot album as well as several songs from Green Day's 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. Tunny enters the armed forces, Will gets called back home to attend to family responsibilities, and Johnny's attention is torn between a love interest and a hazardous new friendship. An energy-fueled rock opera, American Idiot contains little dialogue, instead relying on Green Day's lyrics to articulate the story.
