An energetic rock musical, American Idiot, is a high concept show that takes Green Day's chart-topping 2005 punk rock album and brings it vibrantly to life. The musical centers on three young, restless men, Johnny, Tunny and Will. In their attempt to break out of their uninspiring suburban world, the group parts ways in search of higher meaning in each other's lives. In the journeys, they encounter in the city, the army, or back home- the young men explore the delicate balance between rage and love- a conflict that defines their generation.

 

The mundaneness of concrete structure was used to tie in urban and suburban lifestyle presented in the show. I viewed the production being about leaving what you know to find that what you needed to discover was yourself
