Cast Away 

Wednesday, Jun 27 2012
If you haven’t been living under a rock the last couple of weeks, then you have likely heard that the musical American Idiot, based on Green Day’s album by the same name, is back in town at the Orpheum. But do you know what the cast of American Idiot is also up to while they are in the Bay Area? Tonight, they join jazz songstress Paula West and Broadway star and Emmy Award-winning Bruce Valance -- of Hairspray acclaim -- in the fight against AIDS. The cast is armed with the weapons of upbeat music, dance, and jokesmithing. To some, these might not seem like the most powerful weapons, but it’s in the capable hands of touring casts like these that The Richmond/Ermet AIDS Foundation has been able to raise and distribute over $2.6 million to AIDS service agencies. One Night Only with the Cast of American Idiot cabaret doesn’t include any songs from musical, which may delight or annoy you, depending on your level of fandom. However, for an extra $20, you can hang out after the show with the cast and enjoy complimentary wine, cocktails, and desserts (limited tickets available).
