Direct from Broadway, the smash-hit musical American Idiot tells the story of three lifelong friends, forced to choose between their dreams and the safety of suburbia. Based on Green Day’s Grammy Award-winning multi-platinum album and featuring the hits “Boulevard of Broken Dreams,” “21 Guns,” “Wake Me Up When September Ends,” “Holiday” and the blockbuster title track, American Idiot boldly takes the American musical where it’s never gone before. With direction by Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening), choreography by Steven Hoggett (Black Watch) and orchestrations and arrangements by Tom Kitt (Next to Normal), the result is an experience Charles Isherwood of The New York Times declares “thrilling, emotionally charged, and as moving as any Broadway musical I’ve seen this year!”
Clowes Memorial Hall 4602 Sunset Avenue
Indianapolis, IN 46208
For almost 50 years Clowes Memorial Hall has remained one of the Midwest's premiere performing arts facilities. Clowes Memorial Hall opened its doors October 18, 1963 in memory of the late Dr. George Henry Alexander Clowes, former research director for Eli Lilly and Company. Dr. Clowes devoted his life to science and the arts. The idea of a multi-purpose hall to serve Indianapolis and the community as a center for all the entertaining arts was conceived by Dr. Clowes. Funds to erect and complete the hall were subscribed by Dr. Clowes' family, with his wife, Edith Whitehill Clowes as the principal donor, Butler University and a small circle of friends sharing in Dr. Clowes' devotion to the arts.
