On August 7, 2013, American Idiot played in Japan for the
first time, and on September 5, it made its debut in South Korea. Sean Michael Murray played Johnny, Mariah MacFarlane played
Heather, and Daniel C. Jackson played St. Jimmy.
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.
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.
