Direct from Broadway, the smash-hit musical American Idiot tells the story of three lifelong friends, forced to choose between their dreams and the safety of suburbia. Their quest for true meaning in a post 9/11 world leads them on the most exhilarating theatrical journey of the season. In 2004, the band Green Day released their 7th album entitled American Idiot. In June of 2008, fueled by a passion for the story embedded in the album and possessed by a desire to unearth and expand upon it, acclaimed Tony Award-winning director Michael Mayer and Green Day began a collaboration to bring American Idiot to the stage. The music of Green Day and the lyrics of lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong captured the spirit 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. Based on Green Day’s Grammy Award-winning multi-platinum album, American Idiot boldly takes the American musical where it’s never gone before. The result is an experience Charles Isherwood of The New York Times declares “thrilling, emotionally charged, and as moving as any Broadway musical I’ve seen this year!” But you don’t need an experts opinion to know that. Featuring monster hits like “Boulevard of Broken Dreams,” “21 Guns,” “Wake Me Up When September Ends,” “Holiday” and the blockbuster title track, “American Idiot.” This rock fueled movement is the anthem of today’s youth culture. Won’t you join the movement? Don’t miss this highly acclaimed musical. It’s something unpredictable, but in the end it’s right…
