Newsflash – Melissa Etheridge to Join American Idiot?


That’s what producers announced today. The Oscar and Grammy winner will step into the role St. Jimmy, currently being played by Green Day front man Billy Joe Armstrong. Etheridge will be in the part for a one week run during the first week of February afterwhich Billy Joe Armstrong will return to the role to complete his previously announced limited engagement. “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,” says Michael Mayer.
