Well, we never would have seen this coming, but we kind of like it! Melissa Etheridge will be filling in for Billie Joe Armstrong in Broadway’s American Idiot.
She’s a Grammy- and Oscar-winning singer who will now be turning punk!
Green Day’s Billie Joe will be taking a short break from his American Idiot musical and allowing Melissa to fill in, The Associated Press reports.
From Feb. 1–6, Melissa will take over the role of St. Jimmy, the drug dealer.
“This character is seductive, thrilling and dangerous. Melissa Etheridge is all that and so much more,” director Michael Mayer says.
Billie Joe is set to return to the musical on Feb. 10.
Do you think Melissa is a good choice for a temporary replacement?
