    It’s never quite clear who’s fighting whom and what stakes are involved, but the restless energy, the desire to fight something -- anything -- quickly takes the audience for a ride.

    The touring production of the 2009 Tony Award-winning musical opened at the Keller Auditorium on Tuesday night, bringing music from Green Day’s 2004 Grammy-winning album, "American Idiot", to the stage.

  • Jared Nepute wasn't always so political. But when the 24-year-old actor joined the touring company of"American Idiot," he started to see the world a little differently.

    "I didn't think I was a mindless drone," Nepute said. Spending his childhood in a safe suburban neighborhood, he never really concerned himself with the world around him. "American Idiot," the 2009 Tony Award-winning Broadway musical based on Green Day's 2004 Grammy-winning album, showed him the light.
