If you were alive in the '90s and early aughts, you should remember a little band known as Green Day. If you were in high school or college around 2004, you definitely rocked out to "American Idiot" while driving in your car. It's one of those songs that spoke to the cultural moment in a way that resonated with the young adult psyche -- even if the members of the band were somewhat past that time of life themselves.
But these things tend to come full circle, and just as many of the young adults who loved the song (and the album of the same name) are becoming not-so-young adults with more-grown-up interests and disposable income, American Idiot, the two-time Tony Award-winning Broadway musical, is born.
As it makes its debut at Broward Center for the Performing Arts March 25, the Riverwalk Arts & Entertainment District has put together a special Fort Lauderdale welcome for those coming to see the show.
Those who purchase a ticket to American Idiot can present their ticket stubs at America's Backyard or Stache after the show. They will have their cover charge waived and receive a free drink (choice of wine, beer or cocktail) -- an added value of at least $20.
Package participants must be 21 years of age or older to redeem the offer.
Opening night is Tuesday, March 25, at 8 p.m. at the Broward Center for Performing Arts, located at 201 SW Fifth Ave. in Fort Lauderdale. Showtimes are 8 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, 2 p.m. Saturday, and 1 and 6:30 p.m. Sunday. The show runs through April 6. Tickets cost $34.50 to $114.50. Call 877-311-7469, or visit Browardcenter.org.
