Description

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).
