Director of American Idiot, Michael Mayer said:
[quote]Billie Joe and I always believed that it would be incredible to have a woman take on the role of St. Jimmy. This character is seductive, thrilling and dangerous. Melissa Etheridge is all that and so much more. She's a rock icon and we couldn't be more thrilled that she's bringing her immense talent to American Idiot.[/quote]
American Idiot will not be the first musical that Melissa will be preforming in her lifetime. In the past Etheridge has joined the cast of the musical "Million Dollar Quartet" for a special jam session at the finale of the show last June.
