About American Idiot Bakersfield
Green Day enjoyed phenomenal success in the 1990s as one of the best-selling rock groups of all time. With over 75 million records sold worldwide, the rockers went on to win a whopping 5 Grammy Awards for Best Alternative Album, Best Rock Album, Record of The Year, another Best Rock Album, and Best Musical Show Album. With the help of the Tony Award winning director Michael Mayer, Green Day turned their rock opera album "American Idiot" into a successful Broadway musical. The American Idiot musical follows a similar storyline to that of the album. Through the characters Johnny, Will, and Tunny, we see these three young men experience disillusionment after wasting away in the suburbs, feeling lost in the city, and getting shipped off to war. The musical's book was written by Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong, and he also created many new songs for the musical, in addition to the tracks that were already included on the album.
American Idiot made its world premiere at the Berkeley Repertory Theatre, and quickly broke records and became the highest grossing show in that theater's history. The original cast during the musical's first debut included John Gallagher Jr. as Johnny, Matt Caplan as Tunny, Michael Esper as Will, and Tony Vincent as St. Jimmy. After a brief stint at the Berkeley Repertory Theatre, American Idiot made its official Broadway debut at the St. James Theatre on April 20, 2010. The Broadway production of American Idiot was a resounding success, and longtime fans of Green Day were blown away by their favorite frontman's new creative endeavor. American Idiot's Broadway production won many awards, including a Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Director of a Musical, Tony Awards for Best Scenic Design of a Musical and Best Lighting Design of a Musical, an Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Lighting Design, and a Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album.
