The Book of Mormon standby Nic Rouleau will assume the leading role of Elder Price in the Tony-winning musical. Original, Tony-nominated star Andrew Rannells left the production following the performance on June 10 to star in the new NBC sitcom The New Normal. Rouleau and fellow replacement Jared Gertner made their debuts on the national stage on June 10, performing The Book of Mormon's opening number "Hello!" on the Tony Awards.
Featuring a score and book by Trey Parker, Matt Stone and Robert Lopez, The Book of Mormon follows two mismatched Mormon missionaries as they are sent to Uganda to spread their religion. Upon arrival they learn their training may not have quite prepared them for the many challenges they are about to face.
Rouleau made his Broadway debut as Rannells’ standby in The Book of Mormon. His other credits include Emmett in Legally Blonde: The Musical, Woody in Toy Story: The Musical and Marius in Les Miserables.
The Book of Mormon continues to run at Broadway's Eugene O'Neill Theatre.
