American Idiot
“…is about people trying to find something they can believe in…”
– Billie Joe Armstrong

Called “the first great musical of the 21st century” by The Toronto Star, American Idiot tells the story of three lifelong friends, forced to choose between their dreams and the safety of suburbia. Their quest for meaning in a post 9-11 world leads them on an exhilarating journey. The rock opera is based on Green Day‘s groundbreaking album of the same name. Billie Joe Armstrong and the band staged musical adaptation of the album first premiered at the Berkeley Repertory Theatre in September 2009

“Do you know what’s worth fighting for?
When it’s not worth dying for?…”
