A critical smash on Broadway and in London, the two-time Tony Award winning hit musical American Idiot tells the story of three lifelong friends, forced to choose between their dreams and the safety of suburbia. Their quest for true meaning in a post 9/11 world leads them on an exhilarating theatrical journey. Green Day's Grammy Award-winning multi-platinum album, American Idiot is an energy-fueled rock opera that boldly takes the American musical where it's never gone before.
PG-13: Strong language and mature content.
