Green Day's American Idiot!

Green Day's American Idiot!

Presented by Jopuka Productions
Green Day's explosive, award-winning Broadway musical American Idiot comes to the Central Coast in March 2023.

Bold, brash, and fun, American Idiot takes Green Day's chart-topping 2005 punk rock album and brings it vibrantly to life. American Idiot follows a young anti-hero, Johnny, the self-proclaimed “Jesus of Suburbia”, and his two buddies, Will and Tunny, as they attempt to break out of their mind-numbing, aimless suburban existence.

After escaping to the city, Johnny finds himself embroiled in a passionate affair with a stunning and unpredictable young woman, and an even more passionate affair with hard drugs.
Tunny finds a sense of purpose by enlisting in the Army, but is wounded in the line of duty, both physically and emotionally. Meanwhile, Will, who decided to remain in the suburbs with his newly pregnant girlfriend, becomes moored to his couch, hopeless and stuck.

Each of the men struggles to find the balance between rage and love -- a conflict that defines their generation.
With Green Day's heart-pounding, visceral songs and a young cast who rage against the machine of society with heart and spunk, American Idiot is a knockout guaranteed to bring the house down.
