Seasonal Special Happenings

Green Day via Broadway

When: Fri., April 25 2014

Green Day’s 2005 concept album American Idiot follows the story of three friends searching for meaning in a post-9/11 world. The album got rave reviews when it came out and the title track along with singles “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” and “Wake Me Up When September Ends” became huge hits. At the time, it didn’t seem like something that could become a Broadway musical. But then you could say the same thing about the John Waters’ flick Hairspray. After a run in the band’s hometown of Berkley, Calif., the musical moved to Broadway where it had a long, successful run. It features the music of Green Day and the lyrics of lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong. Tonight’s performance takes place at 7:30 at the Palace Theatre and performances are scheduled through Sunday. Tickets are $35 to $70. (Niesel)
