"5/5 Stars...An exuberant cast and dynamic staging merge boundless energy and pop punk power to make this the best musical of the season." - TVJerry

" energetic, high-powered production built on great music and supported by a fully committed cast.” – Julinda Lewis, the Richmond Times-Dispatch

"That’s refreshing...everything about the production worked." - Karen Newton, I Could Go on and On

"Firehouse Theatre’s AMERICAN IDIOT is a wild and crazy night of awesome theater. I LOVED THIS SHOW. The cast. I could write a paragraph on each. The actors are all superior musicians...A sublime job. AMERICAN IDIOT is a hit and might just be the greatest musical achievement in Richmond this season." - Fred Kaufman

Directed by Firehouse's Associate Producer Adam B. Ferguson, AMERICAN IDIOT tells the story of Johnny, Tunny, and Will who struggle to find and make meaning in a seemingly meaningless world. Johnny flees the constraints of his hometown, lured by the possibilities of a new life in the big city; Tunny joins the armed forces; and Will gets trapped in a stultifying suburban lifestyle that his friends have abandoned. This adrenaline-fueled rock opera relies on the music and lyrics from Green Day's groundbreaking album to tell the story. In Firehouse's production, the ensemble of ten performers are also the band and accompany themselves.
