About the Play
Green Day's powerhouse album is brought to life in this electric-rock musical of
youthful disillusion.

The two-time Tony Award-winning hit musical Green Day's American Idiot, based
on the Grammy Award-winning multi-platinum album, boldly takes the American
musical where it's never gone before. This high-octane show includes every song
from Green Day's album, American Idiot, as well as several songs from its follow-
up release, 21st Century Breakdown.

American Idiot is a high-concept show with strong social messages and depictions
of war, drug abuse, and other mature issues.

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 are quickly estranged when Tunny enters the armed forces, Will is
called back home to attend to familial responsibilities, and Johnny's attention
becomes divided by a seductive love interest and a hazardous new friendship. An
energy-fueled rock opera, American Idiot, features little dialogue and instead relies
on the lyrics from Green Day's groundbreaking album to execute the story line.
