The Tony Award-winning show captures the story captures the story of three adolescent friends finding themselves in a different world, post 911. “Since its inception, audiences have been surprised by the emotional journey the show takes them on, told almost exclusively through Green Day’s songs, including many they are already familiar with and love,” said Tom Hulce, producer. “This is such a potent time for our country and the search of our characters for what to believe in is gorgeously celebrated through Billie Joe Armstrong and Green Day’s wonderfully lush score,” he added.
This inspirational and wildly entertaining story is an absolute must-see for Broadway fanatics and Austin locals alike. The musical features the hits “Boulevard of Broken Dreams,” “21 Guns,” “Wake Me Up When September Ends,” “Holiday” and the blockbuster title track “American Idiot” from Green Day’s 2004 Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum album.
