Nice! This will be a really inneresting change of pace!

Melissa Etheridge will be hitting the Broadway stage next month, taking on the role of St. Jimmy for a one-week period in the musical American Idiot!

For the rest of February, Green Day frontman - and American Idiot's composer/co-author - Billie Joe Armstrong will play the part!

Director Michael Mayer says:

“Billie Joe and I always believed that it would be incredible to have a woman take on the role of St. Jimmy. This character is seductive, thrilling and dangerous. Melissa Etheridge is all that and so much more. She's a rock icon and we couldn't be more thrilled that she's bringing her immense talent to American Idiot.”

Her appearance will DEFINITELY peak some interest, we'd imagine!

We're very curious to see what she does with the part!

Check out her list of performance times…AFTER THE JUMP!

* BILLIE JOE ARMSTRONG: January 18 - 30

    American Idiot is right. Perfect timing. Broadway? HA HA HA HA HA! Why does this douchebag think she can act? or sing or dance or do anything that anyone gives a crap about. GAWD! Hundreds of talented people out there and this has been gets a part on Broadway? She needs to check her ego stage left

    Sorry to be pedantic, but shouldn't that read 'PIQUE some interest', and not 'PEAK'?

    Melissa Etheridge in American Idiot — I wouldn't see it, but it sounds ironically appropriate

    Great - let's hope she uses some of the money for child and spousal support.

    Are you serious? she is the last person in the world who I thought would do this. I'm curious to see how this is going to turn out.
