THEATER | "American Idiot" 

Winner of two Tony Awards, "American Idiot" is a stage-musical adaptation of pop-punk band Green Day's rock opera of the same name, which follows the story of three childhood friends in the wastes of suburbia, searching for elusive meaning in a post 9-11 world. The show features the music of Green Day, including "Boulevard of Broken Dreams," "21 Guns," "Wake Me Up When September Ends," "Holiday," and "American Idiot" from Green Day's 2004 Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum album. The book is by Billie Joe Armstrong and Michael Mayer, and direction is by Tony Award-winner Mayer ("Spring Awakening").
