The casts of the American Idiot UK Tour and West End joined forces to raise money for the Ben Kinsella Trust and the Barn Theatre. Together, they performed a medley of Green Day hits including “Boulevard Of Broken Dreams”, “Holiday” and “Extraordinary Girl / Letterbomb”.
About the performance, here’s what Organiser Alex Gerred said :
“I wanted to utilise the incredible talent and creativity of my Idiotic friends during a time of such uncertainty in the Performing Industry.
This is a chance to help bring awareness, funds and hope to Charities and Fundraisers that mean a lot to us… but ultimately if this medley just puts a smile on someone’s face, then that is also job done. We all need something to smile about at the moment and reconnecting with my friends to create this has been hugely rewarding. We are Idiots forever. Enjoy.”
