Talitha Farrow is a swing on the 1st National Tour and is also a cover for Nabulungi

Of course! Silly me. Even Nick Spangler is u/s for Price on Broadway! My bad :P

I'm not a huge fan of Mark, I but don't understand how anyone can say he doesn't look right for the part?

He looks like a Mormon, he can pull of cheesey by just his smile. Regardless if you think Mark is a brilliant actor or if you think he's wooden, slightly awkward and always smiling - those characters are perfect.

I think Mark was cast however they've thought "Will the show really work in the UK, do we want to risk it with someone who's never played the role" How about we bring over to Americans and try Mark out in the USA, the americans will love this guy and hay if not we're the book of fucking mormon nothing will effect our ticket sales.  

I really hope this show does well, not too well but well.

So an audio recording came out a few days ago of Gavin Creels 'I Believe' - Having not seen Gavin before, I'm very excited. Looks like he's singing it in a lower key though interestingly.

Quite different from Andrew, but he's got such a great voice and approach to it. Really looking forward to seeing him :)

So, here's a question. Is the London cast now fully cast? Because it appears to be lacking in female ensemble members. The Broadway/Tour/Chicago casts all have 5 female ensemble members including Nabalungi whereas the London production only consists of 3 female ensemble members inc. Nabalungi. Anyone know what the deal is there?

I thought so too. Perhaps they're still trying to find some actresses?
