Photo Flash: Meet the Cast of glory|struck's Immersive AMERICAN IDIOT in LA

glory|struck productions presents an immersive, environmental staging of AMERICAN IDIOT, to be vibrantly brought to life in a yet-to-be-disclosed warehouse venue of Downtown Los Angeles' Arts District. Performances begin May 15th. Scroll down for a sneak peek at the cast in costume!

This electrifying stage adaptation of the punk album features James Byous as Johnny, Lindsay Pearce ("Glee") as Whatsername, Briana Cuoco ("The Voice"), Payson Lewis ("The Sing Off"), Jonah Platt (HAIR), Caitlin Ary, Alec Cyganowski, Bianca Gisselle, Matt Magnusson, Abraham Lim ("The Glee Project"), Michelle Raitzin ("The Voice"), Shelley Regner (Pitch Perfect 2), Jordan Booker, Barrett Crake, Casey Hayden, Reesa Marie, Jenna Townsend, and Zach Zagoria.

AMERICAN IDIOT, crafted from the iconic Grammy Award-winning album by Green Day, chronicles the frustration, anger, and dreams of a lost generation of young Americans as they struggle to find meaning in a post 9/11 world.

Conceived by Michael Mayer and Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong, this high-octane show features every song from the album, including "Boulevard of Broken Dreams," "Wake Me Up When September Ends," "Holiday" and the title track "American Idiot." The score also includes "21 Guns" among other songs from Green Day's Grammy Award-winning 2009 release "21st Century Breakdown."

AMERICAN IDIOT is directed by Topher Rhys and Jen Oundjian, who reunite again with musical director Elmo Zapp. This rock-infused presentation will be produced for glory|struck by Topher Rhys, Jamie Lee Barnard, and Juliana Scott who most recently brought the award-winning, Ovation nominated Los Angeles revival of bare to life at the historic Hayworth Theatre. Before that, glory|struck produced the wildly successful, grunge-inspired Spring Awakening in Concert to raise awareness for the LOVE IS LOUDER campaign.

Jen Oundjian (whose work has been seen on The Oprah Winfrey Show, America's Got Talent, and Dancing with the Stars) and Erik Hall will choreograph the show. Other key team members include co-producers Nicci Claspell and Stephanie Lazard, lighting design by Brandon Baruch, sound design by Jon King, associate music production by Alex Seller, and assistant choreographer Dominic Masta.

This production of AMERICAN IDIOT will launch a social action campaign to generate awareness for TO WRITE LOVE ON HER ARMS and HOMEFRONT RISING, two non-profits whose missions closely align with the themes of the show.
