Chrysler Hall is set to welcome the AMERICAN IDIOT national tour this upcoming winter, the punk rock adaptation of Green Day's conceptual album of the same name, from tonight, January 25 and tomorrow night, January 26th.
AMERICAN IDIOT is a one-act, sung-through stage musical that infuses traditional story telling with the steampunk, electro-explosive music of Green Day. Centered around three friends, Johnny, Will, and Tunny, the show displays the stifling atmosphere of suburbia and their parents' restrictions. Turning to the urban jungle, the friends attempt to find the vibrancy of life - and the methods to get through it unscathed.
As previously reported by BroadwayWorld, the show's cast has recently been revamped, now including Alex Nee as Johnny, along with Thomas Hettrick as Tunny, Casey O'Farrell as Will, Alyssa DiPalma as Whatsername, Jenna Rubaii as The Extraordinary Girl, Kennedy Caughell as Heather and Trent Saunders as St. Jimmy.
AMERICAN IDIOT will also feature ensemble members Aurie Ceylon, Carson Higgins, Antwaun Holley, Daniel C. Jackson, Brandon Kalm, John Krause, Alison Morooney, Turner Rouse, Jr., Jamal Shuriah, Dustin Harris Smith, Ashley Tobias, Chelsea Turbin and Jared Young.
AMERICAN IDIOT was nominated in 2010 for three Tony Awards, including best musical. The show closed on Broadway in April 2011, and subsequently launched the first U.S. national tour, which is scheduled to travel throughout the rest of 2012 and into 2013.
