More from the release:
Casting has been announced for the upcoming North American tour of Green Day’s AMERICAN IDIOT, the two-time Tony Award®-winning Broadway hit called “wonderfully raucous” and “emotionally charged” by The New York Times, which will premiere in Toronto December 28, 2011 – January 15, 2012 before continuing on to 14 other markets across the United States.
Original Broadway cast member Van Hughes will star as Johnny, the role in which he concluded AMERICAN IDIOT’s Broadway run, along with Canadian Jake Epstein as Will, Scott J. Campbell as Tunny, original Broadway cast member Leslie McDonel as Heather, Gabrielle McClinton as Whatsername, Nicci Claspell as The Extraordinary Girl and Joshua Kobak as St. Jimmy.
AMERICAN IDIOT will also feature two Canadian ensemble members, Talia Aaron and Gabriel Antonacci, along with Krystina Alabado, Larkin Bogan, Matt DeAngelis, Dan Gleason, Kelvin Moon Loh, Tommy McDowell, Jillian Mueller, Vince Oddo, Okieriete Onaodowan and Kaitlyn Terrill.
Winner of two Tony Awards®, AMERICAN IDIOT is the story of three boyhood friends, each searching for meaning in a post 9-11 world. Through incredible spectacle, thrilling performances and with the hope embodied by a new generation, AMERICAN IDIOT will give audiences the time of their lives night after night on tour in the same way it did during its acclaimed Broadway run at the St. James Theatre from March 2010 to April 2011.
The musical features the hits “Boulevard of Broken Dreams,” “Wake Me Up When September Ends,” “Holiday” and the blockbuster title track “American Idiot” from Green Day’s 2004 Grammy Award-winning, multi- platinum album. Also included in the score are several songs from Green Day’s Grammy Award-winning 2009 release “21st Century Breakdown” including “21 Guns” and an unreleased love song, “When It’s Time.”
