First Preview Performance was Great!,
Mar 25, 2010
reviewer: from Cumberland, RI
I'm biased because I am a huge Green Day fan, but I thought the show was fabulous. It was a high energy performance that was enhanced by there being no intermission. The show started out immediately with passion and angst, and it kept it up all the way to the very end. The songs from 21st Century Breakdown were fused well into the story line, and it was a real treat to hear some old Green Day music, as well. Green Day was there to support the show and its talented cast. I could see Billie Jo and Mike throughout the performance, and they seemed to be pleased and proud o the production (as well they should be). I thought the set was perfect, and I really liked how the "orchestra" was on stage. I was releived to see that the audience was not 99% teenagers - I was afraid I would be the only "grown up". That proves that this is a show for anyone of any age who likes an intense and explosive rock opera. Go see it!!

AMAZING,

reviewer: from Connecticut, USA
American Idiot was amazing ! The choreography, stage design, music vocals and dance were top notch. This is a must see ! It's on par with the original HAIR and Rent. If you loved either of those you will love this and the music is memorable and meaningful. This musical has a message and you are enraptured from the opening

Fantastic!!,
Mar 31, 2010
reviewer: from USA
I would have used the title "Amazing" for my review if another person hadn't already. In the most literal sense, I was amazed; I absolutely loved it. The set, the actors, the singing, the choreography, the music was incredible/wild/depressing/uplifting/thought provoking/colorful/loud/inventive.

Breathtaking,

They cut no corners in putting this show up: I was blown away by the set, lighting, singing, choreography, and emotional range. When the Extraordinary Girl comes down from the ceiling, I felt like I was flying myself.

Just saw it yesterday (4/3) and loved it. The way they arranged Before the Lobotomy was beautiful and moving, & the heavy songs kept all of the energy of the originals. Can't wait 4 the original cast sountrack CD!!
