"A wonderfully RAUCOUS and gorgeously wrought ROCK OPERA…
--The New York Times

The music of Green Day and the lyrics of lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong capture the spirit 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. The songs are bursting with emotion. The story dares you to feel and celebrate and hope.

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).

Tickets start at $20!
