Stars of Broadway Version Head to the West End to take on the Lead Roles in the Popular Musical
Its success has been felt on both sides of the Atlantic and with this in mind it is sharing its stars thanks to the new announcement, with the Broadway version’s Nic Rouleau and Brian Sears making their way to the West End to take on the roles of Elder Price and Elder Cunningham respectively.
The Book Of Mormon is the famous musical from South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, plus Avenue Q’s Robert Lopez. It focuses on Mormon missionaries who head out to Uganda in order to spread the word of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. However this proves to be more difficult than first thought and they soon feel far from home as the inhabitants are more concerned with war and famine than they are with religion.
Musical numbers include You And Me (But Mostly Me), I Am Here For You, Making Things Up Again, Spooky Mormon Hell Dream and Tomorrow Is A Latter Day, among others.
Nic Rouleau, in addition to appearing in The Book Of Mormon on Broadway has also amassed credits such as the New York production of Toy Story, plus US regional versions of Legally Blonde The Musical and Les Misérables.
Meanwhile, Brian Sears has appeared in numerous role in The Book Of Mormon as performer, understudy and standby, whilst also working as an understudy in various other productions and appearing in the likes of Grease The Musical.
The Book Of Mormon opened at the Prince of Wales Theatre last year, replacing Mamma Mia! (which moved to the Novello Theatre) and proving to be a big success, picking up Laurence Olivier Awards and attracting large crowds of people with theatre tickets.
The production continues at the Prince of Wales Theatre and, thanks to a recent extension, is currently booking for performances up to Saturday 7th March 2015.
