Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong To Close Out 'American Idiot' Broadway Run

It's been a rough day for Broadway's rock 'n' roll musicals. In addition to the news on Thursday that U2's  Bono,The Edge and producers had determined that the struggling Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark needed a new creative team, sacking director Julie Taymor,  it was announced that Green Day's American Idiot would close on April 24. The good news? Billie Joe Armstrong will play "St. Jimmy" for the last three weeks of the show's run.
