To the tune of American Idiot by Green Day

     Don' want to be an american idiot.

Cause it sucks and has no structure.

Didn't think a show could be that bad, But I guess I was wrong.

    And you know what else is depressing,

there stupid choreography honey,can't take them…

Go Ask Alice, or Rather, the Jesus of Suburbia

    All of suburbia shuffles to the Orpheum, to bask in the lights of the Seven-11. They flock, an intrigued congregation, to meet Johnny, the Jesus of Suburbia. People proceed to shuffle into their seats, iced drinks in hand, even well into the first act. “Entertain us with head-banging therapy,” the audience whispers. “Please fill the void.”

    Ladies and gentlemen of Suburbia, I give you Billy Joe Armstrong’s American Idiot:  A nearly-plotless collage of shameful American…

A few confessions

Max Singer

American Idiot

A few Confessions

I’ll start with two confessions. The first confession is that this is probably going to be my weakest review this season.  Which leads me to my second confession: I don’t really know what I thought of the show. That might be my fault, but it might be that of the show’s. I can’t tell. American Idiot is not quite like any other show I have…
