Hot off the heels of celebrating their 30th Anniversary year, Lichfield Garrick Youth Theatre are back with a bang to present the thrilling Broadway musical American Idiot.
Green Day’s powerhouse album of the same name is brought to life in this electric-rock musical of youthful disillusion. The two-time Tony Award-winning hit musical American Idiot, based on Green Day’s Grammy Award-winning multi-platinum album, boldly takes the American musical where it’s never gone before.
This high-octane show includes every song from Green Day’s album American Idiot, as well as several songs from 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 estranged when Tunny enters the armed forces, Will is called back home to attend familial responsibilities, and Johnny’s attention becomes divided by a seductive love interest and a hazardous new friendship.
An energy-fuelled rock opera, American Idiot, features little dialogue and instead relies on the lyrics from Green Day’s groundbreaking album to execute the story line.
LGYT presents the Lichfield premiere of American Idiot from Tuesday 29 March until Saturday 2 April at Lichfield Garrick Theatre.
