The Mormons are days away from converting 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 hilarious cast. Gavin Creel leads the mission across the U.S. as Elder Price. Although he’s a Broadway favorite, Creel admits that like his character in The Book of Mormon, he assumed his dreams could be achieved easily. The actor describes how sharing that type-A personality with Elder Price helps Creel understand him. Listen to the Tony nominee talk about loving his costars and why America’s going to “eat up” this hilarious musical.
