Hot Date: Green Day’s American Idiot

photo by Doug Hamilton

DECEMBER 28 TO JANUARY 15 Punk rock gets the Broadway treatment as the hit musical American Idiot comes to Toronto. Based on the Grammy-winning 2004 album by Green Day, this modern-day rock opera tells of angst-filled youths caught between their dreams and the confines of suburbia. Conceived by bandleader Billie Joe Armstrong, this emotionally charged production combines Green Day’s familiar songs—“Jesus of Suburbia,” “Wake Me Up When September Ends” and more—with a dramatic story of longing, loss and redemption. Toronto Centre for the Arts, $62 to $180; call 416-644-3665 or visit here for showtimes and to buy.
