The Tony-nominated production of “American Idiot,” the play based on the concept album of the same name by Green Day, comes to L.A.’s Pantages Theatre next month.

The limited one-week engagement runs from May 13 through May 18. Amoeba Hollywood will be auctioning off two tickets to the opening May 13 show at our May 3 charity auction. The tickets also include a meet-and-greet with the cast after the show.

We’ll also have merchandise from the show available to bid on, so head to Amoeba that day for a chance to win. The charity auction goes to benefit Sweet Relief, a non-profit that provides a fund for musicians in medical and financial need.

The musical features the music of Green Day and lyrics by frontman Billie Joe Armstrong, using hit songs from the album like “Boulevard of Broken Dreams,” “Wake Me Up When September Ends” and “American Idiot,” as well as songs from Green Day’s 2009 album 21st Century Breakdown and the unreleased Green Day song “When It’s Time.” The show’s Grammy-winning soundtrack is available now.

Tickets for the show start at $25 and are available here. In addition, the show will have a lottery before every performance in which people can enter their names for the chance at deeply discounted tickets ($25 for front row seats). They’ll release 26 tickets per show for the lottery, and you can enter two and a half hours before each day's performance. Head to HollywoodPantages.com/Lottery to enter and for more information.
