Welcome to BWW's ON THIS DAY Series celebrating theatrical birthdays, openings and special events that took place on this day in theatre history!
Happy Birthday, Billie Joe Armstrong! Best known as the lead vocalist, main songwriter and lead guitarist for the American punk rock band Green Day, Armstrong recently brought one of his most popular concept albums to Broadway- American Idiot. In 2010, Armstrong joined the cast of American Idiot, which won two Tonys, for one week in the role of St. Jimmy. He replaced the original Broadway cast member Tony Vincent in Fall of 2010 and returned to the role for 50 performances in January 2011.
In celebration of this day, we bring you 'Boulevard of Broken Dreams' and 'Holiday' as performed at the 2010 Tony Awards. Click below to check it out!
