The X Factor’s Amelia Lily and double platinum selling artist Newton Faulkner star as the Tony Award-winning Green Day-inspired rock musical American Idiot returns to the Arts Theatre.

Subsequent to a hugely successful 2015 run at the West End venue and a smash-hit 2016 UK tour, the sounds of “Boulevard of Broken Dreams”, “21 Guns” and “Wake Me Up When September Ends” will once again have audiences rocking for a strictly limited run, with Faulkner and Lily continuing in their roles.

Packed with many of Green Day’s greatest hits, the punk band’s music scores three young boyhood friends, seeking a place in a world still feeling the shockwaves of the events of 9/11.

Directed and choreographed by Racky Plews, the show also includes several songs from Green Day’s 2009 release “21st Century Breakdown,” and an unreleased love song, “When It’s Time.” This is a punchy, vociferous musical which might just offer you The Time Of Your Life.

Unlike film, theatre doesn't have an official age classification organisation. That means all age recommendations are subjective and should be treated as guidelines unless otherwise stated. With this in mind, we ask you to use your judgement in regards to a show’s suitability prior to purchase. However, we are more than happy to help you make a decision.
