Green Day’s powerhouse album is brought to life in American Idiot, an electric-rock musical of youthful disillusion. Working class characters – from the suburbs to the city to the Middle East – seek redemption in a world filled with frustration.

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, Michael is called back home to attend 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.
