"Information age of hysteria, it's going out to idiot America"

AMERICAN IDIOT tells the exhilarating story of a new generation of young Americans as they struggle to find meaning in a post-9/11 world, brought to life by Green Day’s electrifying score. With an 8 member onstage band and a cast of 19 led by by Tony Award-winner John Gallagher Jr., this high-octane musical includes every song from the acclaimed album American Idiot, as well as several songs from the band’s Grammy Award-winning new release, “21st Century Breakdown.”


Green Day won two Grammy Awards for the groundbreaking rock opera American Idiot, which sold more than 12 million copies worldwide. Billie Joe Armstrong and the band collaborate with one of the theatre’s most acclaimed creative teams to bring this explosive, iconic album to the stage.
