Billie Joe Armstrong Heads to Broadway
Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day took to the Broadway stage in September to take the lead in the Green Day musical, “American Idiot,” and he enjoyed his time so much that he decided to reprise the same role in 2011.
The musical has already been nominated for three Tony Awards (including Best Musical), and with Billie Joe as the lead, the show seems to gross even more money. When he was in the play back in September, the week’s earnings were over $1 million, while more recent weeks (with someone else in the title role) have averaged at about $600,000 per week.
Armstrong has decided to take on the role of St. Jimmy for another 50 shows beginning on January 1. He’ll perform from January 1-9, January 18-30, and February 10-27.
Will you be seeing it?
