this is the album that saved my life. it was 2003 and I had just been activated to go to Iraq war. 2004 came around and I returned home and the only thing that could save my mental capacity at the time was music and this album of Green Day was one of them to save me as well as the killers, Sevendust, and many other rock albums. to see the show something that I have been attempting to do since the Broadway days just like another rock musical that changed the world I saw it first with a bunch of semi professional performers and I'm glad I did because it's something about seeing an amazing musical with semi professionals who do it for the love of the art and not just money. this is a show with heart this is a show with a bunch of talented perfo... full review

Green Day’s American Idiot was in and of itself a highly successful album. Green Day’s American Idiot the Rock Opera draws on the fans and does not disappoint. The story has a strong arc. Three Friends go off on individual journeys of self-discovery, descend into their private hells, and come out the other side. The Doma Theatre gives us another fine production from an energetic cast. Playing as it is during the Hollywood Fringe Festival, Green Day’s American idiot is a great example of a fringe production that made it big. Of course, it all starts with very fine music but the presentation can either add to the production or detract. In this case the dialogue between the songs was delivered with color and energy and definitely added to... full review
