About the Event
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. Based on the rock band 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!” Featuring the hits "Boulevard of Broken Dreams," "21 Guns," "Wake Me Up When September Ends," "Holiday" and the blockbuster title track, American Idiot features the music of Green Day and the lyrics of its lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong; direction by Tony Award-winner Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening); choreography by Olivier Award-winner Steven Hoggett (Black Watch); music supervision, orchestrations and arrangements by Pulitzer Prize-winner Tom Kitt (Next to Normal); Tony Award-winning set design by Christine Jones; and Tony Award-winning lighting design by Kevin Adams.
Nationally-touring productions exhibit the same quality seen on Broadway. Some shows use the same sets and costumes from the Broadway production.
