American Idiot!

June 13-23, 2019

Playhouse After Dark

Directed by: Ashley Reese

SHOW SPONSOR: Terrapin Station

The two-time Tony Award-winning hit musical Green Day’s American Idiot, based on the Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum album, boldly takes the American musical where it’s never gone before. This high-octane show includes every song from the Green Day’s album, American Idiot, as well as several songs form its follow-up release, 21st Century Breakdown.

Johnny, Tunny and Will struggle to find meaning in a post-9/11 world. When the three disgruntled men flee the constraints of their hometown for the thrills of city life, their paths are quickly estranged when Tunny enters the armed forces, Will is called back home to attend to familial responsibilities, and Johnny’s attention becomes divided by a seductive love interest and a hazardous new friendship. An energy-fueled rock opera, American Idiot, features little dialogue and relies on the lyrics from Green Day’s groundbreaking album to execute the story line.

For Mature Audiences.
