a not very good analysis of american idiot as a musical
so i went and saw a local production of american idiot a couple days ago and it was really good. local shows can be a bit hit or miss but this was really well done, the set was amazing, the costumes were perfectly done and fit right iin with the aesthetics of the abum, and the acters were insanly talented and really well cast.the story was the pretty typical escapes small town and everything kinda goes to sh*t because yay drugs, teenage pregancy and parental expectations. what set it apart though was how it showed additction, it showed how they seemt o make everything better and how they seemt o set you on this new plane of existance but then the addiction slowly rips everything apart and creates a whole new level of sh*t. it also quite exelently showed how getting sober sucks, it not fun, its nto exciting, and its definetly not fun, but you become a person again and how you get your life back. american idiot showed this pretty well with how the main character didnt really do anything monumentus but he saw his old friends again and came back to where everthing started after it had ended.overall a really good musical and if theres every a production going on near you, its worth seeing. also shout out to the old ladies that were sitting next to me, they were cool.
