Billie Joe on Broadway

American Idiot

Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong made his Broadway debut tonight in the musical he co-wrote.

Armstrong will appear in the rock opera this week, from Tuesday until Sunday, at the St. James Theatre. The Green Day lead singer, who co-authored “Idiot,” will play St. Jimmy; a role typically helmed by stage performer Tony Vincent, who will be on leave for a family matter. []
