“American Idiot” returns to rock QPAC’S Playhouse this month. Winner of two Tony Awards and the 2010 Grammy Award-winner 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. Featuring the music of Green Day, this thrilling new musical has introduced a generation of theatregoers to their powerful and moving musical style. The high-octane Brisbane season will include an all-australian cast featuring Phil Jamieson and Sarah Mcleod and includes every song from Green Day’s album “American Idiot”, as well as several songs from their follow-up release, “21st Century Breakdown”.
13–21 April, Playhouse, QPAC, cnr Grey and Melbourne Streets, South Bank. 136 246. qpac.com.au
