American Idiot Broadway ShowAmerican Idiot on Broadway
The acclaimed Green Day album American Idiot is now an edgy rock musical. Following a hit run at the Berkeley Rep, American Idiot is now rocking Broadway at the St. James Theatre. The show features all of the songs from the Grammy Award winning album plus songs from Green Day's follow-up, 21st Century Breakdown, all with new musical arrangements and sung by a talented ensemble who embody the world of frustrated suburban youth that Green Day created on the American Idiot album.

The cast was originally headed by Spring Awakening's John Gallagher Jr., as well as Michael Esper, Tony Vincent, and Rebecca Naomi Jones, even featuring occasional appearances by rockers like Melissa Etheridge and even Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong himself. On March 1st, American Idol finalist-turned-Broadway star Justin Guarini and AFI's Davey Havok joined the cast.

Summary Based on Green Day's Grammy Award-winning album, American Idiot follows the lives of frustrated working class youth struggling to find their place in a society that they feel alienated from.

Age
Teens and Up. (Strong language and simulated sex and drug use.) Children under the age of 4 are not permitted in the theatre.

Our Recommendation
As in director Michael Mayer's previous foray into the teenage wasteland, Spring Awakening, American Idiot both looks and sounds spectacular, thanks to an excellent young cast, Green Day's many memorable songs ("When September Ends," "Boulevard of Broken Dreams," etc.), Tom Kitt's fine arrangements, and all-around terrific design elements (including Darrel Maloney's clever video design). However, the loose concept that makes Green Day's American Idiot album feel like a cohesive story is very weak when put up onstage, so the show is better enjoyed as a staged concert than as an actual Broadway musical. Even then, it seems that American Idiot would fare better in a smaller concert-friendly venue that would allow the audience to rock along. (Or maybe the show just needs to take a page from Rock of Ages' book and find ways to create a more festive atmosphere.)
