Augustana will present the two-time Tony Award-winning musical "Green Day's American Idiot" May 7-10.
The show is based on the Grammy Award-winning multi-platinum album. It includes every song from Green Day's album, "American Idiot," as well as several songs from its follow-up release, "21st Century Breakdown."
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 separated. An energy-fueled rock opera, "American Idiot" relies on the lyrics from Green Day's album for the story line. (Music Theatre International)
Book and lyrics are by Billie Joe Armstrong, book by Michael Mayer, and music and lyrics by Green Day. It is directed by Shelley Cooper.
