As the sinister drug dealer St. Jimmy in Green Day’s rock opera American Idiot, Tony Vincent finds himself heading to some dark places on stage. Vincent decided to extend Jimmy’s dreariness into his own dressing room at the St. James Theatre by creating a cavern-like atmosphere. “This color is called temptation,” Vincent says of the painted walls of his elevated space, from which he can look out onto Idiot's stage. “It totally works for the character.” Vincent invited Broadway.com even further to the depths of his rock star world by showing off his favorite keepsakes and goodies.

"Every dressing room should have a few proper bottles of bubbly."















"I’m a Prada freak and I think they have great eyewear. Even though I don’t need glasses I use them as a fashion accessory."














"This is a picture of my wife [American Idiot ensemble member Aspen Vincent] and me in transit on our honeymoon in Napa Valley."














"This is an ice bucket that was personally made for me for this show from a fan club based in the UK. It's a great reminder of the support team I’ve had throughout my career."














"These are a signed Depeche Mode vinyl and Radiohead poster. If you’re involved in American Idiot, you have to have references of legit rock-and-roll bands in your dressing room!"
