The hilarious Mormons have almost arrived in Portland. The national tour of the Broadway smash The Book of Mormon begins performances at the Keller Auditorium on January 1 and runs through January 6. Before the award-winning musical from the creators of South Park arrives to ring in the New Year, take some time to get to know the talented cast. Jared Gertner stars as Elder Cunningham, Elder Price ‘s (Gavin Creel) mission brother in the national tour of The Book of Mormon. Ever the “mess-up Mormon,” Gertner says Elder Cunningham just wants to fit in, despite his flaws. Listen to the actor talk about being “schlubby” on stage, not ever worrying about his looks while in character and the show’s “pro-faith” message.
