Acclaimed Hypocrites Style American Idiot Now Playing Through October 25th

Chi, IL LIVE Shows On Our Radar

American Idiot

It's been a crazy busy end of summer/start of fall here at ChiIL Mama & ChiIL Live Shows. We're finally going to get over to review American Idiot this Friday so check back soon for our take on the show. We've heard great things and can't wait to check it out. Don't miss THIS!

We've had the pleasure of seeing the Broadway touring version twice, but we're huge fans of The Hypocrites past works and eager to see what they've done with the production.

"A viceral and impassioned theatrical experience,"
- Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune

"American Idiot feels precisely as raw, real, reckless and angry as it should."
- Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times

"A rousing reinvention."
- Time Out Chicago

"Utterly entertaining."
- Chicago Readers

"Go see it before it's over."
- Gapers Block

"Director, Steven Wilson, integrates the amazing flexibility of his hugely talented young cast with the material in a strikingly rich fashion."
- Chicago Tribune

"This particular version of
American Idiot is a work of endurance, timing, commitment, passion and insuppressible talent... The Hypocrites continue to rise not just to the rank of one of our city’s best storefronts but one of Chicago’s best theaters period."
- Newcity Stage
