My Green Day

Just as I was ready to dismiss seeing 'American Idiot', a new musical based on Green Day's Grammy-winning album, they announced the cast list that has been changing my mind. As expected, John Gallagher Jr. ('Spring Awakening') is heading the show but it's the inclusion of Stark Sands that's going to bring me to St. James Theatre sometime this year. I've been a fan of Sands since his turn in 'Journey's End' and his role in the HBO miniseries "Generation Kill" only cemented himself as one of those actors I'll be keeping an eye out for. The show itself will launched March 24th. Oh, I hope Sands can ease my doubts when he and the cast performs '21 Guns' on the Grammys this Sunday. (Playbill)
