Just saw it for the 5th time and the show literally gets better every time I see it. This was my first time seeing Cale and I really like what he has done with the role. It was also great to see how far Nic has come since I saw it last. I always seem to forget just how perfect it is, but then I see it again and it I remember how profoundly much I love this show. Ah… What a lovely afternoon :)
I might be missing some because like…. have you ever tried digging through 5 years of social media?! And like some of the Arnolds make Google go “this guy played Arnold too! Close enough!” No it’s not, Google!!!
I’m also not sure if the Standby!Cunninghams at BOM!AU have gone on yet.
1st Row: Will Blum, Jordan Matthew Brown, Michael Buchanan, David O’Reilly
2nd Row: John Finley, Lee Slobotkin, A.J. Holmes, Nyk Bielak
3rd Row: Cale Krise, Jared Gertner, Coby Getzug, Brian Sears, Cody Jamison Strand
4th Row: Ben Platt, Chris O’Neill, Conner Peirson, Josh Gad.
Some of them could have a stronger likeness. Some faces are easier to draw than others.
OKAY! I am so confused. Is Will Blum or Cale Krise performing as Elder Cunningham on Bway right now?
Will and Cale perform every other week, with their rotation being Friday - Thursday. The official website, poster, playbill and Playbill Vault entry are changed accordingly. They stand by for each other when not onstage.
I would just like to say that I completely agree with everything you said about The Book of Mormon. Nic, simply put, can't sing like Andrew. He has a hard time going from a low note to a high one, and a hard time, in general, hitting the high notes. His voice is also really weak, and too soft for this role. As for Cale, I also agree that he plays Cunningham to be retarded and it's really annoying. What were your thoughts on Samantha as Nabulungi?
I actually liked Samantha as Neosporin. I wasn’t sure how it would go because Nikki was so great, but she filled her shoes well I thought. Granted I only saw the show twice, but I’ve listened to the OCR about 50 or 60 times so it *feels* like I’ve seen it many times over :)
I hope Rory and Brian stick around for a while longer. And my favorite Ugandans, John Eric Parker and Michael James Scott!
