OB Playhouse & Theatre Co. presents the high-octane punk rock musical, AMERICAN IDIOT. Based on Green Day’s Grammy Award-winning multi-platinum album and featuring the hits “Boulevard of Broken Dreams,” “21 Guns,” “Holiday” and the hit title track, American Idiot boldly took the American musical in a new direction, capturing not just the sound of a generation, but also the frustrations, fears, dreams and challenges of becoming an adult in the media-saturated, new millennial world.
With a book by Billie Joe Armstrong and Michael Mayer and lyrics by Billie Joe Armstrong, American Idiot tells the story of three lifelong friends who are grappling with the decision to either challenge the status quo and break out of their aimless rut or to remain in the safe confines of their suburban existence. Their quest for true meaning in a new millennial world leads them on a journey of self-discovery, heartache, and revelation.
At the helm of this production is director, Juztine Tuazon, who staged OB Playhouse’s hit musicals/plays, Reefer Madness, I Love You Because, and Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead. Juztine Tuazon collaborates with acclaimed choreographer, Michael Mizerany, on bringing this punk rock score to life in a brand new staging, that aims to fully immerse the audience in a truly experiential piece that will move and sock you at your core.
“A pulsating portrait of wasted youth that invokes all the standard genre conventions — bring on the sex, drugs and rock ’n’ roll, please! — only to transcend them through the power of its music and the artistry of its execution, the show is as invigorating and ultimately as moving as anything I’ve seen on Broadway…”
– The New York Times
“…the furious, alienated and unshowered youth of Green Day’s ‘American Idiot’ comes to explosive life on the Broadway stage in a heart-pounding, punk-rock opera that sounds the unmistakable siren of a generational shift.”
– The Chicago Tribune
