A one-act show, American Idiot takes place in post-9/11 America, and the characters are young and rebellious. Johnny escapes from suburbia and tries to find a place in life as "Jesus of Suburbia," but it's not that simple. He winds up finding the "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" and a drug dealer called St. Jimmy. His friend Tunny goes to war in Iraq, and Johnny meets a girl called Whatsername.
The plot comes from Green Day lyrics to songs like "Wake Me Up When September Ends," evoking a sense of tragedy and alienation. This is one of today's hottest rock operas, so find American Idiot tickets at TicketNetwork!
