The cast for the forthcoming London premiere of the Tony Award-winning musical American Idiot at the HMV Hammersmith Apollo will be an all-American affair.
Alex Nee, Thomas Hettrick and Casey O’Farrell will star as Johnny, Tunny and Will, three boyhood friends searching for meaning in a post 9/11 world.
Based on and featuring music from the Grammy Award-winning rock bank Green Day’s concept album of the same name, the lifelong friends are forced to choose between their dreams and the safety of suburbia as their quest for truth leads them on an exhilarating journey.
Joining the three leading men in the cast are Alyssa DiPalma, Jenna Rubaii, Kennedy Caughell and Trent Saunders, and ensemble members Aurie Ceylon, Carson Higgins, Antwaun Holley, Daniel C. Jackson, Brandon Kalm, John Krause, Alison Morooney, Turner Rouse, Jr., Jamal Shuriah, Dustin Harris Smith, Ashley Tobias, Chelsea Turbin and Jared Young.
American Idiot plays at the HMV Hammersmith Apollo for a two week season from 4 to 16 December following a UK tour.
