With Allison at the first preview of American Idiot last night!
I was surprised by how much I liked the show. I was particularly moved by the dancing (I enjoy modern) and the spectacular performance by Tony Vincent, who plays St. Jimmy.
There is also a breathtaking scene involving the “Extraordinary Girl” and one of the lead males. I don’t want to ruin the surprise, so will simply say that this powerful scene brought tears to my eyes.
My only criticism is that the show lacks a real plot. It’s loose, at best.
The best part: all the hipster parents at the stage door with their eyeliner-wearing kids.
