'American Idiot' Broadway Show Closing in April

Green Day

"American Idiot," the Broadway show based off Green Day's 2004 album of the same name, will close, the producers announced in a statement Thursday.

Ticket sales had plummeted when the band's front man, Billie Joe Armstrong, departed earlier this month. Box office sales went from $1.3 million to $395,275 in the first week after he left.

Armstrong will reprise his role of St. Jimmy beginning April 5 for the final three weeks on stage. His return marks the one-year anniversary of the "American Idiot" opening.

After 421 performances and 27 previews on Broadway, the final show is set for April 24.

The first national tour launches this fall.

The show garnered a 2011 Grammy for "Best Musical Show Album," two 2010 Tony Awards, a Drama Desk Award, an Outer Critics Circle Award and was honored with the Actors' Equity Association's Award for "Extraordinary Excellence in Diversity and Equal Opportunity on Broadway."
