Fresh from a national tour to Sydney, Adelaide, Perth and Darwin, the all-new 2018 production of Green Day’s explosive, award-winning Broadway phenomenon American Idiot returns home to rock QPAC’s Playhouse from 13 April!
With re-imagined lighting and set design, this Tony Award® and Grammy® Award winning show is the story of three boyhood friends, each searching for meaning in a post 9/11, Trumpian-suburbia. The show features the music of Green Day with the lyrics of its lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong and book by Billie Joe Armstrong and Michael Mayer.
This thrilling new musical has had Green Day fans in rapture and introduced a generation of theatregoers to their powerful and moving musical style. So come and discover what all the noise is about!
This high-octane Brisbane season will include an all-Australian cast featuring Phil Jamieson2 (Grinspoon) and for the very first time, Sarah McLeod (The Superjesus)2 in the role of St Jimmy.
So come and discover the new American Idiot, but be quick before the season closes on Saturday, 21 April!
