American Idiot: The Musical

Cordwainer Productions is proud to bring its third production, the scorching AMERICAN IDIOT: The Musical to the stage.

American Idiot is based off of Green Day's anthemic pop-punk rock opera of the same name. Set on the edge of the grunge of the 90s, American Idiot is about youths who are fed up with the state of the union. Revolting against the system, on the backdrop of some of the most important events of the early 21st Century, the show shatters the way we imagine the American dream, and steps all over the broken pieces.

Following three young men on their journeys through the American military, the urban underground, the tribulations of teenage pregnancy and what it's like to have grown up in a society that sucks the identity from you, American Idiot is a Tony Award winning adrenaline rush - running just over 80 minutes, with no intermission, it's a non-stop punk-grunge extravaganza.You won't want to miss out!
