American Idiot Cast Release 9/11 Tribute

American Idiot at the Arts Theatre

To mark the anniversary of 9/11, cast members from the musical American Idiot have recorded a cover of Green Day’s When September Ends. This emotional rendition of the song is performed by Alexis Gerred, Aaron Sidwell and Steve Rushton. The story of American Idiot, expanded from that of the concept album, centers on three disaffected young men post 9/11, Johnny, Will, and Tunny. Johnny and Tunny flee a stifling suburban lifestyle and parental restrictions, while Will stays home to work out his relationship with his pregnant girlfriend, Heather. American Idiot is currently running at the Arts Theatre until 22nd November 2015

REVIEW: American Idiot, Arts Theatre ✭✭✭

American Idiot at the Arts Theatre

American Idiot is a bit of a frustrating production; whilst the music of Green Day has plenty to offer a musical, it doesn’t seem right for a sung-through stage adaption. However, whatever it lacks in plot and characterisation, it more than makes up for in energy, passion and pure good fun.
