Returning to Los Angeles in spring 2014, the groundbreaking Broadway musical “American Idiot” from Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong and Tony Award winner Michael Mayer will play at the Pantages Theatre in from May 13 to May 18, 2014.

“American Idiot” may have the unconventional elements of a musical – an anti-hero for a lead character, a rock music theme with shrieking sharp guitars and bolting drumbeats, and a dark tale about the present generation’s existential struggle after the tragedy of the 9/11 bombings – but it didn’t spare the show some well deserved critical acclaim and success at the box office. With songs like “21 Guns”, “Wake Me Up Before September Ends” and “Boulevard of Broken Dreams”, this show will shake you to your core and even question your beliefs at best, but you will surely leave the Ahmanson Theatre with exhilaration that you can only get from a rock musical with raw emotion and substance. The performance running time is 1 hours and 35 minutes with no intermission.
