American IdiotWhen Green Day's Grammy award-winning multi-platinum album American Idiot was released in 2004, the unique 'rock opera' format drew many to lament the fact that it wasn't actually a stage production. Well, worry no longer. Based around songs from both American Idiot and the subsequent album 21st Century Breakdown, the show tells the captivating story of three lifelong friends and their quest to escape the safety of post 9/11 suburbia. The show has been described by The New York Times as "thrilling" and "emotionally charged" and there's even a feature film version in development, produced by Tom Hanks.
