Green Day’s American Idiot

Bold, brash, and fun, American Idiot takes Green Day’s chart-topping punk rock album and brings it vibrantly to life. Music by Green Day, lyrics by Billie Joe Armstrong, and book by Billie Joe Armstrong and Michael Mayer, American Idiot follows a young anti-hero, Johnny, the self-proclaimed “Jesus of Suburbia”, and his two buddies, Will and Tunny, as they attempt to break out of their mind-numbing, aimless suburban existence. After escaping to the city, Johnny finds himself embroiled in a passionate affair with a stunning and unpredictable young woman, and an even more passionate affair with hard drugs Tunny quickly gives up on life in the city, joins the military, and is shipped off to war, but is wounded in the line of duty, both physically and emotionally. Meanwhile, Will, who decided to remain in the suburbs with his newly pregnant girlfriend, becomes glued to his couch, hopeless and stuck. Each of the men struggles to find the balance between rage and love — a conflict that defines their generation.
