First,to all the people who complained about profanity,similated drug use,sex,etc...IT WAS BASED ON A PUNK ROCK RECORD!!! I saw the show on Broadway and am very excited that it is coming to Houston. My mother doesn't like loud music,so no,I wouldn't bring her,nor would I bring a child who is unfamiliar with Green Day. If you are letting your children listen to the band,then they are already familiar with the contents of the play. If the content shocked you,then maybe a little more research on your part would have done some good.

Saw the show in New York two weeks after it opened. It was a very moving experience for me even though I've been a Broadway theater-goer for years. I am sorry I didn't buy a second ticket for the weekend that I was there. I am looking forward to seeing this show again when it comes to Pittsburgh. I recommend this show to anyone. Was the best theater experience I have ever had.

I have seen many Broadway Shows.....this is by far my favorite!! I was super excited to see it was coming to Philly! The first time I saw the show, the tickets were a gift, and I had to drag my hubby to NYC.....this time he is buying the tickets and can't wait to see it again! YES!

This was an amazing show. It is a true Rock Opera. It is helpful to know that the Jesus of Suberbia ( Johnnie) and St Jimmie are one in the same person ( sort of a Fight Club , Edward Norton/ Brad Pitt thing). The songs are powerful and the dancing is awe inspiring. This is a truly modern, hip, musical ... Rock Opera... Like any Opera, open to interpretation in many areas. Can't wait for the proposed movie. Even if you do not know Green Days music ( which is fabulous... BillieJoe Armstrong is a poet) You Will Be Moved ...

Spectacular musical, not suggested for kids though. Maybe only mature teenagers.

I didn't really want to see a play about Green Day, but I'm glad I did. The dancing and singing was amazing. Also the lights/effects were phenomenal. Although, like the previous reviewer said it is not G rated,I highly recommend it.

The show is awesome. I saw the cast at the UK. I wish you would show the current cast photos.
