‘American Idiot’ at The Comedy
“American Idiot”, Green Day’s award-winning Broadway phenomenon, is on at the Comedy Theatre. Winner of two Tony Awards and the Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album, “American Idiot” is the story of three boyhood friends, each searching for meaning in a post 9/11, Trumpian-suburbia, discovering love, loss, drugs, sex and rock and roll along the way. The show features the music of Green Day with lyrics by lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong. “American Idiot” features every song from the album of the same name as well as several songs from the follow-up release, “21st Century Breakdown”. The music theatre/rock show showcases an all-australian cast including Phoebe Panaretos as Whatsername and Aussie rock legends Phil Jamieson, Adalita and Sarah Mcleod playing in rotation as St Jimmy.
