Chris Cheney and Phil Jamieson cast in Green Day musical
The Australian cast of the Green Day musical American Idiot has been announced today, with a couple of our country’s biggest rock stars leading the cast.
Chris Cheney from The Living End and former Double J Artist In Residence, Phil Jamieson from Grinspoon share the role of St. Jimmy in the show, which will see them performing alongside a cast packed full of young stars of Australian musical theatre.
You can check out the full cast at the American Idiot website.
Historically, the role of St. Jimmy tends to be the one most often given to established musicians. It has been filled by Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong, AFI’s Davey Havok and Melissa Etheridge in past performances around the world.
The musical debuts at QPAC in Brisbane on Thursday 23 February and runs to Sunday 5 March. There has been no indication of performances in other states.
