Green Day’s Rock Mu­si­cal AMER­I­CAN ID­IOT Hits the Zilkha Stage at TUTS in Septem­ber

Public News (Houston) - - THEATER -

Hous­ton - The­atre Un­der The Stars’ (TUTS) Humphreys School of Mu­si­cal The­atre (HSMT) presents the tal­ented, young cast of AMER­I­CAN ID­IOT, which runs Septem­ber 15-16 in Zilkha Hall at the Hobby Cen­ter for the Per­form­ing Arts. The stel­lar cast tells the story of Johnny, Tunny, and Will who are strug­gling to find mean­ing in a post9/11 world. When they leave the con­straints of their home­town for the thrills of city life, their paths quickly di­verge as Tunny en­ters the armed forces, Will is called back home to at­tend to fa­mil­ial re­spon­si­bil­i­ties, and Johnny’s at­ten­tion be­comes di­vided by a se­duc­tive love in­ter­est and a haz­ardous new friend­ship. The story of the two-time TonyAward-win­ning pro­duc­tion is fu­eled by mu­sic from Green Day’s Amer­i­can Id­iot and 21st Cen­tury Break­down al­bums. All mu­sic for AMER­I­CAN ID­IOT was com­posed by Green Day. Bil­lie Joe Arm­strong wrote the lyrics, and co-wrote - along with Michael Mayer - the book for the mu­si­cal. Star­ring in the pro­duc­tion are Noah Car­lin as Tunny, Jes­sica Hel­gerud as St. Jimmy, Saman­tha Lank as Les­lie, Alexa Ma­gro as What­ser­name, Miles Mar­molejo as Theo, Paco Me­d­ina as Will, Emily Mesa as Alysha, Cameron Mills as Johnny, Zac Mole­graaf as Joshua, An­drew Ricks as Chase and Court­ney Sch­mitt as Heather.
