Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong Joins American Idiot Broadway Cast
American Idiot, the Green Day-inspired rock opera, will mark vocalist/guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong’s debut on Broadway. Armstrong composed and co-penned the Tony Award-winning musical, and he’ll plays St. Jimmy in it Sept. 28-Oct. 3 at the St. James Theatre.
The story is loosely based on Green Day’s album of the same name and follows three lifelong buddies faced with the ultimatum of choosing to pursue their no-guarantee dreams or a quiet life in safe suburbia.
Tommy Vincent, the original St. Jimmy actor, will resume performances Oct. 12.
The Original Broadway Cast Recording of American Idiot Featuring Green Day dropped April 20, the same day as the musical’s premiere. The record features the 24-member Broadway cast, along with Green Day. You can order the two-disc set here.
