London’s Arts Theatre welcomes back its 2015 smash hit rock musical American Idiot.

Featuring songs by Rock ‘N’ Roll Hall of Famers Green Day, lyrics penned by Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong and a book by Armstrong and Michael Mayer, American Idiot tells the story of three childhood friends trying, and failing, to navigate a post-9/11 world.

Winner of two Tony Awards and a Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album, American Idiot is a heart-pounding 100 minutes of pop-punk heaven. Adapted from Green Day’s award-winning, platinum-selling album American Idiot, itself inspired by epic rock operas such as Jesus Christ Superstar and The Who’s Tommy, the musical features a full catalogue of hits including ‘Boulevard of Broken Dreams’, ‘Wake Me Up When September Ends’ and chartbusting title track ‘American Idiot’. The super-charged score is seamlessly united with a tense narrative about coming of age in a splintered modern America.

Directed and choreographed by Racky Plews, American Idiot stars double-platinum-selling artist Newton Faulkner in the lead role of Johnny and X Factor finalist Amelia Lily as love interest Whatsername.

Absolutely brilliant! I didn't know what to expect, I knew nothing about the show or the storyline beforehand. I cried with joy as soon as it started, during the poignant moments and at the finale. I was so overwhelmed with unexpected happiness. I was just blown away. I could not take my eyes off the stage, the set, the performers, who are also musicians. The choreography was fab. It was anarchic, frenetic, loud, funny, sad. There was minimal, but necessary dialogue. It is the best show that I have ever seen. The three main leads were brilliant (Newton Faulkner playing the lead role) - actually, the full company was amazing. The costumes were really cool. Everything perfectly fitted in with the Green Day songs. I could see this again and again. I will probably never stop talking about it! As soon as I hit the 'submit review' button, I will probably think of something else to say! Highly recommended. Please, whole world, go and see this show!

My Grandaughter has loved Green days music for years, I took her last year to see American Idiot and as I am 72 was very sceptical, but I am an eclectic theatre goer. I really enjoyed it and loved the terrific energy of the cast. Yesterday I came again with my other two grandchildren as well plus my two daughters everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. Although rock music is not my thing to watch the fabulous cast dancing was great and I loved the slower lyrical songs.

This show was so disappointing! The recorded soundtrack was so loud you couldn't hear the singers. The play was dispiriting and with no character development, and the performers jarred and jarring.
