Broadway was rocked like it had never been rocked before when Green Day's American Idiot moved in. Based on the critically acclaimed band's 2004 album of the same name, the musical is a punk rock opera that follows three disaffected young men. Johnny, Tunny and Will live in suburbia and know they want something else -- they're just not sure what that something is. Fear, war and drugs soon prove easier choices than freedom, eroding their friendship and dreams. With a crazed rock pulse, American Idiot at the La Mirada Theatre is an intense look into the hearts of young Americans craving purpose in a cynical world.
