"This BLISSFUL EXTRAVAGANZA makes  you think even as it knocks you out."

- Bob Verini, Variety

"This RAMBUNCTIOUS CAST captures [Green Day’s] performance energy brilliantly."
  - Paul Hodgins, The Orange County Register

  Should thrill Green Day fans while   recruiting legions of new ones."
  - Les Spindle, Back  Stage

"Rabble-rousing pop-punk show.
  - Charles McNulty, Los Angeles Times

Slinging razor guitars , thundering drums and an anti-hero named Johnny. Not the prelude of typical entries in the canon of musical   theatre. But these elements herald a groundbreaking American musical all  the same: with the burning passion of characters who yearn for something  more, songs bursting with emotion and a story that dares you to feel and  celebrate and hope.

The music of Green Day and the lyrics of lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong captured the zeitgeist of a generation with its Grammy® Award-winning  multi-platinum album. American Idiot puts those raw emotions front and center in a highly theatrical and thoroughly satisfying rock opera that burns  up the stage.

Monster hits like “Boulevard of Broken Dreams”, “21 Guns.,” “Wake Me Up When September Ends,” “Holiday” and the title track soar like they  were written for the stage under the direction of Tony Award® winner Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening), choreography by Olivier Award winner Steven Hoggett (Black Watch) and music supervision, orchestrations and arrangements by Pulitzer Prize winner Tom Kitt (Next to Normal).

music for the Stage.
