Green Day's American Idiot

Green Day's powerhouse album is brought to life in this electric-rock musical of youthful disillusion. American Idiot -- based on Green Day's Grammy Award-winning multi-platinum album, a scorching attack on what they saw as the hypocrisy and moral evils of the Bush Administration after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, as well as the increasingly submissive nature of the American public -- boldly takes the American musical where it's never gone before. Lost and disconnected in a post-9/11 America, Johnny, Tunny, and Will struggle to find meaning in their lives. The three twenty-somethings flee the constraints of their hometown for the thrills of city life, but their paths quickly diverge as Tunny enters the armed forces, Will is called back home to attend to a pregnant girlfriend, and Johnny descends into an urban underworld, following a seductive love interest and a deadly new best friend. As each of the three men learns to navigate his "alienation," we see in them America's struggle to find a new path in this new millennium, after a long period of darkness.

This powerful, high-octane, rock fable includes every song from Green Day's album American Idiot, as well as several songs from follow-up release, 21st Century Breakdown.
