Green Day always knew their Grammy-winning rock opera would be more than just a record. Developed by frontman Billie Joe Armstrong with director Michael Mayer, American Idiot translates the concept album into a rock musical unlike any other. Following three disillusioned suburban youths trying to find meaning in a post 9/11 world, the show includes very little dialogue, relying instead on the band’s lyrics to tell its story. Hardcore fans delight: The musical contains songs from several albums and even an unreleased track. Kurt Wehner directs the Woodlawn’s production.
