The final musical collaboration by the legendary theater team of John Kander and Fred Ebb (Chicago, Cabaret and Kiss of the Spider Woman) comes to Los Angeles for a run at the Ahmanson Theatre. This surprising and inspiring story is based on the Scottsboro case from the '30s concerning nine young African-American men who were unjustly accused of a shocking crime and whose story would eventually contribute to the Civil Rights Movement. The Scottsboro Boys is told through a mix of innovative staging and piercing songs, and garnered 12 Tony Award nominations. This production is directed and choreographed by five-time Tony Award winner Susan Stroman (The Producers). Learn More

Great show!!! Bought these tickets to go with a friend and our teenage sons. Perfect after dinner outing. Not apropriate for children under the teenage years.

This is was a great musical. Not meant for kids under 15yrs old. There is a graphic bed scene. Other than that, it was cool to hear all the music.

Simulated sex scenes on stage made me a little uncomfortable since my 12 yr-old son was right next to me! I expected the F-bombs but not the sex... The performance was great and the singing spot on!

I imagine this show makes more sense for people that are better familairized with the source material than I am. The cast's performances were great; however, I found it a bit daunting to follow the story as there was barely any dialog to establish what was going on for the less initiated (at least that was my experience). My daughter seemd to quite enjoy the show and definitely had a better grasp of the story and characters (she is a Green Day fan). Did I enjoy myself? Yes (but more for sharing the experience with my daughter). Would I go again? Probably not (I'd much rather go see Jesus Christ Superstar again). The music, singing, dancing and use of the set were all great but I feel this show is better suited for Green Day fans over a general musical audience.
More Information About Green Day's American Idiot
Slinging razor guitars, thundering drums and an anti-hero named Johnny. Not the prelude of typical entries in the canon of musical theater. But these elements herald a groundbreaking American musical all the same: with the burning passion of characters who yearn for something more, songs bursting with emotion and a story that dares you to feel and celebrate and hope.
The music of Green Day and the lyrics of lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong captured the zeitgeist of a generation with its Grammy® Award-winning multi-platinum album. American Idiot puts those raw emotions front and center in a highly theatrical and thoroughly satisfying rock opera that burns up the stage.
Monster hits like “Boulevard of Broken Dreams,” “21 Guns,” “Wake Me Up When September Ends,” “Holiday” and the title track soar like they were written for the stage under the direction of Tony Award® winner Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening), choreography by Olivier Award winner Steven Hoggett (Black Watch) and music supervision, orchestrations and arrangements by Pulitzer Prize winner Tom Kitt (Next to Normal).
