Tickets are now on sale for the show which runs May 28-June 2 at the San Diego Civic Theatre.
Winner of two Tony Awards, AMERICAN IDIOT is the story of three boyhood friends, each searching for meaning in a post 9-11 world.
The New York Times called the Broadway hit “wonderfully raucous” and “emotionally charged."
“Flat-out electrifying” said the Boston Globe.
AMERICAN IDIOT features the music of Green Day with the lyrics of its lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong.
“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 and Green Day’s wonderfully lush score,” he added.
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. Also included in the score are several songs from Green Day’s 2009 release “21st Century Breakdown,” and an unreleased love song, “When It’s Time.”
The musical is coming to the San Diego Civic Theatre on 3rd and B Street in Downtown San Diego May 28-June 2.
