Green Day's American Idiot is a high-energy punk rock opera exploring the disillusionment of a generation coming of age in a tumultuous world. Johnny, Will and Tunny each search for meaning in the post 9/11 era. Fuelled with sex, drugs, and vital angst, the friends' dreams smash against reality with rock 'n' roll force.
Winner of two Tony Awards, plus a Grammy for Best Musical Show Album, the show features the music of Green Day, and a book written by lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong himself alongside award-winning director Michael Mayer.
As relevant today as when it first burst onto the American stage in 2009, this electric show speaks to anyone looking for their place in a fast-changing world – and packs a powerful theatrical punch.
The ADC Theatre is Britain's oldest University playhouse, today administered and maintained by the University of Cambridge. Plays have been presented on the site since 1855, when the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club (CUADC) was founded, and the society met and performed in the back room of the Hoop Inn, which stood almost exactly where the ADC Theatre stands today. Today, the ADC Theatre is the centre of University drama in Cambridge, run almost entirely by students with no Faculty involvement.
