Green Day’s ‘American Idiot’ at Landis Theater
Calling all American Idiots!
The Landis Theater will host a show featuring the rock music of Green Day performed by local musicians. But this is no tribute … it’s “American Idiot.”
“American Idiot” is a musical based around Green Day’s 2004 concept album of the same name. Featuring epic tracks such as “Jesus of Suburbia,” “Holiday” and “Boulevard of Broken Dreams,” it tells the story of three disillusioned suburban youths and their attempts to flee from their mundane lifestyle within America. The original production ran on Broadway in 2010, and for the next two weekends, the Landis will host a series of performances of the show.
Three performances will take place this weekend at 8 p.m. Friday, April 23, and 3 and 8 p.m. Saturday, April 24. Tickets are $30 and can be purchased at TheLandisTheater.com.
The Landis Theater is located at 830 E. Landis Ave. in Vineland.
