shake & stir theatre co Executive Producer Nick Skubij is excited to get the show on the road: “There are so many reasons why audiences, some first time theatre-goers, are going to love 'American Idiot',” he says. “It is utterly contemporary, disarmingly relevant and features some of the country's most loved rock and roll music theatre performers.”
Getting back into the role of St. Jimmy is Grinspoon's own frontman Phil Jamieson.
“Absolutely stoked to the eyeballs to be reprising the role of St. Jimmy for 'American Idiot' in 2018... So many great tunes, such a great time,” he says. “I can't wait to bring it to y'all around the country!”
