(CRANFORD, NJ) -- Green Day’s American Idiot is barreling into CDC Theatre.

It follows the exhilarating journey of a new generation of young Americans, led by friends Johnny, Tunny and Will, as they struggle to find meaning in a post-9/11 world, borne along by Green Day's electrifying score with music and lyrics by Billie Joe Armstrong and book by Billie Joe Armstrong and Michael Mayer.

Johnny, Tunny and Will struggle to find meaning in a post-9/11 world.
