American Idiot Des Moines | Civic Center

American Idiot Des Moines | Civic Center

Punk band Green Day’s venture into musical theatre proved to be a huge success on Broadway garnering rave reviews and multiple awards. For two days only, catch this runaway theatrical success at the Des Moines Performing Arts Civic Center in January 2014.

Three best friends dream of leaving their dreary lives in suburbia and hit it big in the city. But their lives take drastically different paths right from the beginning. Will’s girlfriend reveals that she is pregnant so he must stay behind to try to face the responsibilities of fatherhood – which he resents. Tunny becomes disillusioned with life in the city and enlists in the army in hopes of becoming part of something greater, then get injured in action. And Johnny meets the girl of his dreams then spirals on a roller coaster with St. Jimmy, his alter ego, who tempts him on a path of drugs and distraction instead.

Amecan Idiot by Green Day will play at the Des Moines Performing Arts Civic Center on January 24 and 25, 2014 only. The curtains rise at 7:30pm on the 24th and performances on the 25th will be at 5:00pm and 9:00pm.
