Overview

American Idiot tells the exhilarating story of a new generation of young Americans as they struggle to find meaning in a post-9/11 world, borne along by Green Day's electrifying score. With an eight member onstage band and a cast of 19 led by Tony Award-winner John Gallagher, Jr., this high-octane musical includes every song from the acclaimed album American Idiot, as well as several songs from the band's Grammy Award-winning new release, 21st Century Breakdown.

Green Day won two Grammy Awards for the groundbreaking rock opera American Idiot, which sold more than 12 million copies worldwide. Now Billie Joe Armstrong and the band collaborate with one of the theatre's most acclaimed creative teams: Tony Award-winning director of Spring Awakening Michael Mayer, two-time Tony Award-winning composer and orchestrator Tom Kitt, and Olivier Award-winning choreographer Steven Hoggett, to bring this explosive, iconic album to the stage.

I have been a Green Day fan since my middle school years and have grown up listening to all their music. I bought every album as it was released. When Green Day released their American Idiot album, I was immediatly sucked into the underlying story of St. Jimmy and the Jesus of Suburbia. In April 2010, this story premiered under the lights of Broadway. This cast recording is captivating and addicting. With instrumentation performed by Green Day themselves and powerful vocals from the cast, this album completely captures the apathy, rage and desperation of the characters as faithfully as a studio recording can. The instrumentation, though re-recorded for this album, sounds like it was lifted directly from American IDiot and 21st Century Breakdown. The only thing I didn't like about this cast recording is the lack of dialogue and song lead-ins. Unless you knew you were listening to a Broadway Cast recording, one might think they were listening to Green Day karaoke.
