Green Day's American Idiot the Musical to return to Bridlington SpaMon 9th April 2018
THE GROUNDBREAKING SMASH HIT UK PRODUCTION OF GREEN DAY’S AMERICAN IDIOT WITH MUSIC BY PUNK POP & MULTI GRAMMY AWARD-WINNING BAND GREEN DAY RETURNS TO THE UK FOR A SPECIAL 10TH ANNIVERSARY OUR WITH PERFORMANCES AT BRIDLINGTON SPA IN MAY 2019.
Following two critically acclaimed and celebrated West End runs and a sell-out UK Tour, Green Day’s explosive Tony Award winning rock musical, American Idiot, returns to mark the show’s 10th anniversary and the 15th anniversary of the Grammy Award winning album. The special anniversary tour will be at Bridlington Spa Tuesday 7 to Saturday 11 May 2019.
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 world. The show, which premiered in December 2009 at Berkeley Rep Theatre, features the music of Green Day with the lyrics of its lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong and book by Billie Joe Armstrong and Michael Mayer.
This story of youthful disillusion and mistrust of society and government has never been more current; particularly with the modern parallels in the USA where school children have mobilised to form an impressive campaign for gun law reform.
The musical’s hit songs include “Boulevard of Broken Dreams,” “21 Guns,” “Wake Me Up When September Ends,” “Holiday” and the blockbuster title track “American Idiot” from Green Day’s 2004 Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum album. Also included are several songs from Green Day’s 2009 release “21st Century Breakdown,” and an unreleased love song, “When It’s Time.”
American Idiot The Musical is directed and choreographed by Racky Plews, with musical supervision by Richard Morris, sound by Chris Whybrow and lighting by Tim Deiling. The production is produced by Selladoor Worldwide and presented by arrangement with Music Theatre International (Europe) Limited.
Casting to be announced in due course.
