My husband wasn't totally on board with going to the show, but in the end, I got my way.
If you are planning on seeing American Idiot, just be forewarned there is a lot of profanity, drug use, and sex scenes. I had thought about taking my 14 year old daughter, but almost immediately felt relieved that she didn't come. While I am sure these are subjects she can handle just fine, I think witnessing their portrayal with her parents would have been a bit awkward for her.
The energy was high and the performers did a great job on the musical numbers. However, I wasn't sure they executed their storyline as well as they could have. It was almost halfway through the show before I realized there were 3 different stories unfolding in the performance. However, the show was still great- not Rock of Ages great, but worthwhile to see once.
Are you a Green Day fan? What musical band would you like to see featured in a theatrical performance?
