ABOUT AMERICAN IDIOT

Opened: July 20, 2017

Closed: July 29, 2017

Location: Marjorie Lyons Playhouse

WINNER! 2 Tony® Awards! Green Day’s AMERICAN IDIOT, based on and including every song from the Grammy Award-winning multi-platinum album, as well as several songs from follow-up release, 21st Century Breakdown, boldly takes the American musical where it’s never gone before. Johnny, Tunny and Will struggle to find meaning in a post-9/11 world. When the three disgruntled men flee the constraints of their hometown for the thrills of city life, their paths are quickly estranged when Tunny enters the armed forces, Will is called back home to attend familial responsibilities, and Johnny’s attention becomes divided by a seductive love interest and a hazardous new friendship. An energy-fueled, high-octane rock opera, AMERICAN IDIOT is unlike anything else you will see this summer!

ABOUT CURTAINS

Opened: November 8, 2017

Closed: November 12, 2017

Location: Emmett Hook Center

It’s the brassy, bright, and promising year of 1959. CURTAINS unfolds backstage at Boston’s Colonial Theatre, where a new musical could be a Broadway smash, were it not for the presence of its talent-free leading lady. When the hapless star dies on opening night during the curtain call, a local detective arrives on the scene to conduct an investigation into the entire cast and crew. But the lure of the theatre proves irresistible and after an unexpected romance blooms for the stage-struck detective, he finds himself just as drawn toward making the show a hit, as he is in solving the murder.
