|The Cast of "American Idiot"|
Onto the stage of City Lights Theater Company bursts a vigorous, heart-pumping, invigorating American Idiot with a cast that gives and gives and gives some more. Even if the story or some of the characters’ motivations are not totally clear to any audience member not already fully versed in Green Day music and lyrics, this cast, director, and production team ensure the overall punk-flowing messages are there for the easy taking.
