Melissa Etheridge is about to get in touch with her punk side.
Etheridge, best known for her song "Come to My Window," will play drug dealer "St. Jimmy" from Feb. 1 to Feb. 6. Armstrong, the composer and co-author of the musical, returns Feb. 10.
The high-octane show follows three working-class characters as they wrestle with modern life. One joins the Army, one becomes a father and one descends into a drug-fueled life - thanks to St. Jimmy.
Says director Michael Mayer: "This character is seductive, thrilling and dangerous. Melissa Etheridge is all that and so much more."
