Based on Green Day's Grammy-winning concept album of the same name, American Idiot is a high-energy, two-time Tony-winning rock opera featuring the songs from the album, with direction by Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening), choreography by Steven Hoggett (Black Watch) and orchestrations and arrangements by Tom Kitt (Next to Normal). The story follows three lifelong friends -- Johnny, Will and Tunny -- as they are forced to choose between following their dreams or staying in the safety of the suburbs. Popular songs from American Idiot include "Boulevard of Broken Dreams," "21 Guns," "Wake Me Up When September Ends," "Holiday" and the title track, which was nominated for four Grammys when it was released in 2005.

Allan is a fine vocalist, though the banter between songs was content-free. I would have liked to have heard who the composer & lyricist are, perhaps the context that the song was written [during WWII ? For a particular musical ?] His quartet is fine, especially the pianist.
But the real disappointment.was several people around me texting during the performance. I complained to one of them and it lessened somewhat. The Amaroso Theater failed by not announcing to turn off cell phones before the performance, or are the rules different at that theater ? If so I won't be returning. I did complain to the head usher who came by right before the intermission ended to announce 'no cell phones during the performance,' but he did so so quickly and meekly that it proved ineffectual.
Quotes & Highlights
- “Relaxed, romantic, swinging, and extremely easy on the ears — jazz vocalist Allan Harris’s tribute to Nat King Cole ... got all the important things right.” --<em>Washington Post </em>
Nat King Cole left a permanent mark on the jazz world with his impeccable style and velvety smooth voice. Allan Harris, a world-class singer, guitarist and songwriter and a favorite of South Florida jazz audiences, brings his own special style and will captivate you with his interpretations to the Nat King Cole Songbook. Harris is a three-time winner of the New York Nightlife Award for "Outstanding Jazz Vocalist”, is a Gibson guitar artist and is Tony Bennett’s "favorite singer." Pascal LeBoeuf on piano, Jake Goldbas on drums and Leon Boykins on bass join Miami saxophonist, Jesse Jones, Jr. in Harris’s jazz ensemble as they perform an unforgettable evening of great jazz standards.
