Direct from Broadway, the smash-hit musical AMERICAN IDIOT tells the story of three lifelong friends, forced to choose between their dreams and the safety of suburbia. Based on Green Day’s GRAMMY® Award-winning multi-platinum album and featuring the hits “Boulevard of Broken Dreams,” “21 Guns,” “Wake Me Up When September Ends,” “Holiday” and the blockbuster title track, AMERICAN IDIOT boldly takes the American musical where it’s never gone before. With direction by Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening), choreography by Steven Hoggett (Black Watch) and orchestrations and arrangements by Tom Kitt (Next to Normal), the result is an experience Charles Isherwood of The New York Times declares “thrilling, emotionally charged, and as moving as any Broadway musical I’ve seen this year!”
Tickets go onsale to the public on Friday, November 30 but through a special offer, we'll be able to order tickets in advance (to have a chance at better seats) and get a group rate for 10+ Meetups. We also have 30 discounted seats on hold in 3 different sections. See below for details.
It is also OK if you would like to just take advantage of the ticket discount separately; for example, if you wanted to treat someone (date, family, friend, etc.) and just need a couple seats but don't want to necessarily sit in the Meetup group sections. In this case, you'll get the best seats possible for a given price range at the time the order is finalized.

In addition, there will be a special After Party at the Backstage Bar/Cabaret Theatre (1/2-block walk from Heinz Hall) featuring fun 'Green Day inspired' cocktails, wine specials (only $3.50 per glass), and craft beer specials ($2.50/bottle) ... as well as a complimentary Improv Theater performance on February 21. This is one evening you won't want to miss!!

Note that the $50.25 Meetup price is a discount compared to the normal $62 ticket ... plus you're saving ticket handling charges. Similarly, the $43.05 Meetup ticket would normally cost $53 while the $25 Meetup ticket would normally cost $33.
FYI, the cheapest ticket for this show is $20 (upper balcony farthest from stage) although there won't be a discount

Also, if you'd rather sit somewhere else (maybe if you're bringing someone) but still want the discount let me know. You don't have to sit with the Meetup group to get the ticket discount.
Step 3 -- when you RSVP, please indicate which ticket price level you'd like before February 19
Also, if you'd like to sit a little closer to the stage or cheapest $20 seats, email me and I'll see what might be available.
It is also OK if you'd like to decide after February 19 and we can see about getting some smaller groups of seats together depending on price and availability.
