ABOUT THE SHOW: ? "A Rock Opera for This (and every) Generation!?"
In the Tradition of The Who's "Tommy" and Pink Floyd's "The Wall" comes a Rock Opera for This Generation. Johnny, Tunny and Will struggle to find meaning in a post-9/11 world. When the three disgruntled men flee the constraints of their hometown for the thrills of city life, their paths are quickly estranged when Tunny enters the armed forces, Will is called back home to attend to familial responsibilities, and Johnny's attention becomes divided by a seductive love interest and a hazardous new friendship. An energy-fueled rock opera, American Idiot, features little dialogue and instead relies on the lyrics from Green Day's groundbreaking album to execute the story line.
A Lakewood Playhouse Premier AND a South Sound Premier!
