AMERICAN IDIOT tells the story of Johnny, Tunny, and Will who are struggling to find meaning in a post-9/11 world. When they leave the constraints of their hometown for the thrills of city life, their paths quickly diverge as Tunny enters the armed forces, Will is called back home to attend to familial responsibilities, and Johnny’s attention becomes divided by a seductive love interest and a hazardous new friendship.
The story of the two-time Tony-Award-winning production is fueled by music from Green Day’s American Idiot and 21st Century Breakdown albums. All music for AMERICAN IDIOT was composed by Green Day. Billie Joe Armstrong wrote the lyrics, and co-wrote – along with Michael Mayer – the book for the musical.
AMERICAN IDIOT is recommended for mature audiences only. The show contains graphic language, suggested drug use, violence and sexual situations.
