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

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!!

"Debbie from Arkansas", how about you do a little bit of research before you buy tickets? The fact that the musical is based on Green Day's album should tell you a bit about the content. Maybe you should opt for Mary Poppins instead.

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.

Bridget obviously did not have her thinking cap on. She probably did not understand "Hair", nor "Rent" either. Reviewers like this should be required to reveal their level of education. If you tune out, you won't see the marvel and intense insight flawlessly displayed through the intertwining of music and thought in this unbelievably relevant and thought-provoking show. Everyone should experience this musical.

When I first heard this show was on Broadway, I knew immediately I would be attending my first Broadway show. What a way for me to start my Broadway viewing career. The show was amazing and the cast did an outstanding job of portraying a large portion of today's youth. If you think this type of stuff is not going on with today's youth, then you are truly blind or live in a bubble. I hope this show has a long prosperous run on Broadway.

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!!
