"thrillingly raucous and gorgeously wrought"

The New York Times

A two-time Tony Award-winning hit musical, Green Day’s American Idiot is based on the Grammy Award-winning multiplatinum album—and boldly takes the American musical where it has never gone before. Johnny, Will and Tunny struggle to find meaning in a post-9/11 world. The three disgruntled men flee the constraints of their hometown for the thrills of city life, but quickly go in separate ways when Johnny’s attention becomes divided by a seductive love interest and a hazardous new friendship, Will is called home to attend to family responsibilities, and Tunny enters the armed forces. This high-octane show includes every song from Green Day’s album, American Idiot, as well as several songs from its follow-up release, 21st Century Breakdown. Features students from JMU’s School of Theatre and Dance and School of Music.
