Details: Winner of two Tony Awards®, American Idiot is the story of three boyhood friends, each searching for meaning in a post 9-11 world. Through incredible spectacle, thrilling performances and with the hope embodied by a new generation, the show will give audiences the time of their lives night after night on tour in the same way it did during its acclaimed Broadway run at the St. James Theatre for over a year.
Four Canadians leading the charge include Jake Epstein as Will, Scott J. Campbell as Tunny and Talia Aaron and Gabriel Antonacci in the ensemble. Original Broadway cast member Van Hughes will star as Johnny, the role in which he concluded the show’s Broadway run, along with Broadway cast member Leslie McDonel as Heather, Gabrielle McClinton as Whatsername, Nicci Claspell as The Extraordinary Girl and original Broadway cast member Joshua Kobak as St. Jimmy.
The musical features the hits “Boulevard of Broken Dreams,” “Wake Me Up When September Ends,” “Holiday” and the blockbuster title track “American Idiot” from Green Day’s 2004 Grammy Award-winning, multi- platinum album. Also included in the score are several songs from Green Day’s Grammy Award-winning 2009 release 21st Century Breakdown including “21 Guns” and an unreleased love song, “When It’s Time”.
