City Theater Company closes out the 21st season this April with the Delaware premiere of Green Day’s American Idiot. The Tony Award winner is a rock opera following three friends on a search for meaning in a post 9/11 world. From the suburbs to the city, the trio navigates their early twenties via the punk rock music of Green Day, with lyrics by lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong and a book by Armstrong and Michael Mayer. Music and multimedia collide to create a fascinating production.
Hits from the show include “Boulevard of Broken Dreams,” “21 Guns,” “Wake Me Up When September Ends,” “Holiday,” and “American Idiot.” Director Michael Gray’s approach to the piece is true to the material and consistent with CTC’s in-your-face style.
Green Day’s American Idiot stars Will Brock, Ben Deane, Dylan Geringer, Jake Glassman, Jeff Hunsicker, Leslie Kelly, George Murphy, Alex Orgera, Emma Orr, Amanda Panrock, Frank Schierloh, Brendan Sheehan, Grace Tarves, Adam Wahlberg.
Musicians include Joe Trainor; Dave Marion; Sean Dougherty, Kenny Rhoades, and Sean Flynn of Poor Yorick; Jessica Eaves, Andrea Miller, and Norwood Coleman.
