History

American Idiot is a one-act stage musical and an adaptation of punk rock band Green Day's rock opera, American Idiot. Following a run at the Berkeley Repertory Theatre in 2009, the show moved to the St. James Theatre on Broadway. Previews started on March 24, 2010 and the play officially opened on April 20, 2010. The show came to a close on April 24, 2011 after 422 performances. While Green Day did not appear in the production, vocalist/guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong played the role of "St. Jimmy" occasionally throughout the run.

The story, expanded from that of the concept album, focuses on three disaffected young men, Johnny, Will, and Tunny. Johnny and Tunny run away from a stifling suburban lifestyle and parental restrictions, while Will stays home to work out his relationship with his pregnant girlfriend. The former pair search for meaning in life and try out the freedom and excitement of the city. Tunny eventually gives up on life in the city, joins the military, and is shipped off to war. Johnny finds a part of himself that he grows to dislike, has a relationship, and struggles with lost love.

The book was written by Armstrong and director Michael Mayer. The music was composed by Green Day and the lyrics were by Armstrong. The score featured all the songs from American Idiot and additional Green Day songs from other sources, including 21st Century Breakdown, American Idiot b-sides, and a song called "When It's Time."

Reviews of the musical were mixed. The show was lauded for its music and energy but was also criticized for lack of emotional depth. The musical won two 2010 Tony Awards: Best Scenic Design of a Musical for Christine Jones, and Best Lighting Design of a Musical for Kevin Adams. It also garnered a nomination for Best Musical. On February 13, 2011, it won a Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album.

The production premiered at the Berkeley Repertory Theatre. Previews kicked off on September 4, 2009 and the official opening took place on September 15, 2009. After the show became the top-grossing show in the theatre's history, the producers extended the limited run twice to November 15, 2009. The cast featured John Gallagher Jr. as Johnny, Matt Caplan as Tunny, Michael Esper as Will, Tony Vincent as St. Jimmy, Rebecca Naomi Jones as Whatsername, Mary Faber as Heather, and Christina Sajous as the Extraordinary Girl.

On December 1, 2011, it was confirmed that the musical would be touring the UK, as well as Ireland, in the fall of 2012. The tour made its way to Manchester, Southampton, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dublin, Birmingham, and London. It began on October 9, 2012 at Southampton's Mayflower Theatre, and ended on December 16, 2012 at HMV Hammersmith Apollo in London.

On October 28, 2013, it was confirmed that the third national tour cast would feature Jared Nepute as Johnny, Casey O'Farrell as Will, Dan Tracy as Tunny, Mariah MacFarlane as Heather, Olivia Puckett as Whatsername, Taylor Jones as Extraordinary Girl, and Daniel C. Jackson as St. Jimmy. The ensemble consists of Alex Boniello, Liam Fennecken, Sean Garner, Francesca Granell, Antwaun Holley, Andrew Humann, Alison Morooney, Johnny Newcomb, Michael Pilato, Eric Presnall, Turner Rouse, Jr., Josephine Spada, and Chelsea Turbin. In January 2014, Carson Higgins, who had been a performer on the UK tour, took over the role of St. Jimmy, following Daniel C. Jackson's departure from the show.
