Broadway was rocked like it'd never been rocked before when Green Day's American Idiot arrived in 2010. Based on the band's Grammy winning (and platinum-selling) concept album of the same name, this high-energy, Tony-winning rock opera uses the songs from the album plus several from its follow-up release, 21st Century Breakdown, to drive the story. Three lifelong friends -- Johnny, Will and Tunny -- must navigate the aimless drift of suburbia in a post-9/11 world. But fear, war and drugs soon prove to be easier choices than freedom, which leads to the erosion of their friendship and dreams. With its timely-as-ever examination of the hearts of young Americans craving purpose in a cynical world, American Idiot now brings its electrifying punk rock pulse to the Cupcake Theater in North Hollywood.
