THEATER | "American Idiot" 

The Grammy-winning Green Day album, "American Idiot," comes to life this summer at the Jewish Community Center's CenterStage (1200 Edgewood Avenue). With a book written by Michael Mayer and Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong, "American Idiot" presents an expansion of the stories found in the concept album. Focusing on three young men, trapped in the stagnating pit of suburbia, the musical focuses on the angst found in middle class youth, with emphasis on the slow, yet inevitable movement into adulthood. A Tony-Award winning play, "American Idiot" has appeared at Broadway's St. James Theater, and was the subject for the Netflix documentary "Broadway Idiot".

This adaptation of "American Idiot" is directed and choreographed by Ralph Meranto and Meggins Kelley, and performed by 18 local high school and college-aged students, as part of JCC's SummerStage program. The play runs Saturday, July 11, through Sunday, July 19, with show times at 8 p.m. on Saturdays, Wednesday, and Thursday, and 2 p.m. on Sundays. Tickets are $26 for reservations, $24 for members, and $20 for students. For more information, visit jcccenterstage.org.
