American Idiot Summary

Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong has joined the cast of American Idiot. Based on the multi-platinum album, American Idiot tells the story of three lifelong friends as one takes off for a life in the city, one leaves home to fight for his country and one stays behind, frozen in the safety of suburbia. Their quest for meaning in a post 9-11 world leads them on an exhilarating journey of self discovery. “Thrilling! American Idiot is the most adventurous musical to brave Broadway in the past decade!” – Charles Isherwood, The New York Times

"A groundbreaking musical event!" - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
