melissa-etheridge-to-appear-in-american-idiot

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!

Filed under: Broadway BabiesGreen Day

His first one did alright for itself, so why the hell not?!

Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong has confessed to sources that he is eager to get to work on a new Broadway musical, following the success of his first show, American Idiot. He explained that he's really "interested" in writing songs "specifically for a show" and feels his talent is best suited for this kind of work. He added:

"The kind of music that I like is very immediate and very catchy, and you identify with it quickly, and I try to write that way. And in musical theatre it's the same thing - you identify with the songs immediately. The good ones anyway."

Very true! Look at what a thespian he's become!

Move over, Stephen Sondheim! Your competition has arrived!

Filed under: Broadway BabiesGreen Day

If this doesn't boost ticket sales, nothing will. (To which then they should consider canning the thing!)

Due to one of the cast members taking a leave to deal with a family matter, Billie Joe Armstrong was asked to step in and understudy for a pivotal role in his band's rock opera, American Idiot.

The Green Day frontman is slated to be taking over the role of St. Jimmy for eight performances, starting this Tuesday.

What a marketing ploy! They really should of thought of doing this sooner!

Hey New Yorkers - think any of U will throw down to see Billie Joe in his own musical?
