Broadway alum Nikki Renée Daniels is the latest to step into the role of Nabulungi in The Book of Mormon on Broadway. The Porgy and Bess star has replaced Syesha Mercado in the Tony-winning tuner at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre.
In addition to Porgy and Bess, Daniels' previous Broadway credits include Anything Goes, Promises, Promises, Les Miserables, Lestat, The Look of Love, Nine and Aida.
Featuring a book and score 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. The show currently stars Nic Rouleau as Elder Price, Ben Platt as Elder Cunningham, Matt Loehr as Elder McKinley and Daniel Breaker as Mafala Hatimbi.
