Performance / Green Day’s American Idiot

American Idiot...

is a sung-through stage adaptation of punk rock band Green Day's rock opera, American Idiot. After a run at The Berkeley Repertory Theatre in 2009, the show moved to the St. James Theatre on Broadway. The story, expanded from that of the concept album, centers on three disaffected young men, Johnny, Will, and Tunny. Johnny and Tunny flee a stifling suburban lifestyle and parental restrictions, while Will stays home to work out his relationship with his pregnant girlfriend, Heather. The former pair looks for meaning in life and tries out the freedom and excitement of the city. Tunny quickly gives up on life in the city, joins the military, and is shipped off to war. Johnny turns to drugs and finds a part of himself that he grows to dislike, has a relationship and experiences lost love.
