A critical smash on Broadway and in London, the two-time Tony Award® winning musical AMERICAN IDIOT tells the story of three lifelong friends searching for meaning in a post 9-11 world. Through incredible spectacle, thrilling performances and the hope embodied by a new generation, AMERICAN IDIOT has given audiences the time of their lives night after night since its Broadway run at the St. James Theatre (March 2010 – April 2011) and its subsequent national tour, which launched December 2011 in Toronto.
Based on Green Day’s GRAMMY® Award-winning multi-platinum album and featuring the hits “Boulevard of Broken Dreams,” “21 Guns,” “Wake Me Up When September Ends,” “Holiday” and the blockbuster title track, AMERICAN IDIOT boldly takes the American musical where it has never gone before. Also included in the score are several songs from Green Day’s 2009 release “21st Century Breakdown,” and an unreleased love song, “When It’s Time.”
AMERICAN IDIOT premiered at Berkeley Repertory Theatre in September 2009, and played through November of that year. In April 2010, the musical opened on Broadway where reviews were unanimously positive with Charles Isherwood of the New York Timescalling the show “the most adventurous musical to brave Broadway in the past decade,” and the Toronto Star naming it “the first great musical of the 21st century!”
