Tickets on sale now for Green Day’s ‘American Idiot’ show in Indy

TERRE HAUTE — Broadway in Indianapolis has announced that tickets for the national tour of Green Day’s explosive Broadway hit “American Idiot,” called “wonderfully raucous” and “emotionally charged” by The New York Times and “flat-out electrifying” by the Boston Globe, are on sale now. The show will be presented April 2-7 at Clowes Memorial Hall.

“American Idiot,” a 2010 Tony Award-nominated Best Musical and 2010 Grammy Award winner for Best Musical Show Album, features the music of Green Day with the lyrics of lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong. The book is by Armstrong and Michael Mayer. Direction is by Tony Award-winner Mayer (“Spring Awakening”).

The creative team also includes choreography by Olivier Award-winner Steven Hoggett (“Black Watch”) and orchestrations and arrangements by Pulitzer Prize-winner Tom Kitt (“Next to Normal”). The Tony Award-winning scenic design by Christine Jones and the Tony Award-winning lighting design by Kevin Adams will also be featured in the tour.

Ticket prices range from $25 to $80 and are available at the Broadway Across America box office downtown at 342 Massachusetts Ave.; Clowes Memorial Hall; The Old National Center ticket office; online at BroadwayAcrossAmerica.com; or by calling 1-800-982-2787.

Winner of two Tony Awards, “American Idiot” is the story of three boyhood friends, each searching for meaning in a post 9-11 world. Through incredible spectacle, thrilling performances and with the hope embodied by a new generation, “American Idiot” has given audiences the time of their lives night after night since its Broadway run at the St. James Theatre (March 2010 – April 2011) and its subsequent national tour, which launched December 2011 in Toronto.

“Since its inception, audiences have been surprised by the emotional journey the show takes them on, told almost exclusively through Green Day’s songs, including many they are already familiar with and love,” said Tom Hulce, producer. “This is such a potent time for our country and the search of our characters for what to believe in is gorgeously celebrated through Billie Joe and Green Day’s wonderfully lush score,” he added.

The musical features the hits “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 in the score are several songs from Green Day’s 2009 release “21st Century Breakdown” and an unreleased love song, “When It’s Time.”

The performance schedule will be Tuesday through Thursday at 7:30 p.m., Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m., Saturday matinee at 2 p.m., Sunday matinee at 1 p.m. and Sunday evening at 6:30.
