Jeanna de Waal Replaces Mary Faber in Broadway's American Idiot
The musical features a score by Green Day. It is directed by Michael Mayer, who wrote the book with the band's frontman Billie Joe Armstrong, and features choreography by Steven Hoggett. It follows working-class characters from the suburbs to the city to the Middle East, as they seek redemption in a world filled with frustration.
The principal cast also includes Tony Award winner John Gallagher Jr., Tony Award Nominee Stark Sands, Michael Esper, Rebecca Naomi Jones, and Christina Sajous. As previously reported, Armstrong will play a limited engagement as St. Jimmy, beginning January 1.
Waal is making her Broadway debut. She recently appeared in the West End production of We Will Rock You.
