Have your say

THE cast of a musical featuring tracks by rockers Green Day has been announced ahead of its performances in the Capital later this year.

American Idiot, which has been hailed a huge success on Broadway, tells the story of three boyhood friends searching for meaning in the world after 9/11.

Alex Nee will star as lead character Johnny in the musical, which has claimed two Tony Awards as well as a Grammy in 2010.

The all-American cast open their UK tour in Southampton on October 8, before beginning a six-night run at the Edinburgh Playhouse on October 22.
