March 2, 2011

From the release:

The explosive Broadway hit “American Idiot” will be presented in Los Angeles next spring as part of Center Theatre Group/Ahmanson Theatre’s 2011-2012 season at the Los Angeles Music Center.

The 2010 Tony Award®-nominated Best Musical, called “thrillingly raucous” and “emotionally charged” by Charles Isherwood of The New York Times, will be presented March 14 through April 22, 2012, at the Ahmanson Theatre, with the opening set for March 16.

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

Choreography is by Olivier Award-winner Steven Hoggett (“Black Watch”), and music supervision, orchestrations and arrangements are by Pulitzer Prize-winner Tom Kitt (“Next to Normal”). The Tony Award®-winning set design by Christine Jones and the Tony Award®-winning lighting design by Kevin Adams will also be featured at the Ahmanson.

Open auditions for the national tour of “American Idiot” will be held Saturday, March 5, at the Debbie Reynolds Studio in North Hollywood, and continue at later dates in Toronto, Boston and Chicago. For more information on the auditions, please visit
