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!
