When “American Idiot” comes to the Boston Opera House for five shows this weekend, a crowd of friends and family will turn out to see Duxbury’s Mariah MacFarlane. “I was telling people my dad sort of bought out everything, so if they need tickets they have to see him,” she says. The 22-year-old Emerson College graduate plays Heather in the touring company of the Broadway musical drawn from on the album of the same name by Green Day. She’s looking forward to getting back to her boyfriend and apartment in Boston, if only for a few days.

"Back then, I just wanted to write songs I could be proud of and be able to play in five years," Green Day singer-guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong says, recalling his state of mind exactly 20 years ago – on February 1st, 1994, the day his band's third album and big-record-deal debut, Dookie, was released. He has another, earlier memory, just after Green Day got their advance money from Reprise Records, part of the Warner Bros. company, which issued Dookie and is still Green Day's label.
