'American Idiot' cast member Thomas Hettrick's favorite songs from the show

Thomas Hettrick, who plays Tunny in the touring production of American Idiot, which opens tonight at the Palace Theatre, was a big Green Day fan even before he got the part in AI. But he admitted that his favorite songs in the production may not have been his favorite on the record.

Here's his favorite sequence - Before the Lobotomy and Extraordinary Girl.

"On Before the Lobotomy, if you've heard the original, it's been arranged for a quartet, and it really stands out from the original. Really Broadway."

"And for Extraordinary Girl, well, I get to fly through the air, so..."

The Beat can dig that.

Stay tuned for a Beat video with the cast! We hope to be having "the time of our life."
