if someone proves not to be up to the high standards of the show (not saying anyone is mind) they won't necessarily be the leads in London come June.

True, they fired their Mckinley and Nabalungi during rehearsals for Chicago. Anyone noticed there's no standby for Price either for the London show?

They also reportedly fired Cale Krise from the Broadway show too (he got some pretty bad reviews from people who saw him as Elder Cunningham).

The Americans are loving Mark from the initial comments I've seen - maybe this role is more suited to him than Sam (though I thought he was OK as Sam).

After hearing Cales version of Man Up, I think it's a shame he's gone, I much preferred his rendition to Will Blums as it's more...Cunninghamesque. But then again I haven't seen them perform the role so can't really say. Maybe Cale just had a 6 month contract while they look for a more permanent Cunningham? (He and Blum went on as much as each other).

I think I saw Cale on Broadway and he was good. I much preferred his voice to the Cunningham on the cast recording.

Hello! New member here. This is not about casting specifically but-- Does anyone have any idea about when the next batch of tickets for The Book of Mormon will be available? I heard they would be opening new booking periods monthly but there's been nothing since the beginning of November. I'm planning a trip to London in June to see it and I want to go see some other things as well, but I'm waiting till I have the tickets for Mormon in my hand before I plan any further and I'm going crazy.

Thanks!

Question: Is there first post correct in saying that the 7th is Day 1 of rehearsals?...Or has it changed now? None of the cast seem to be mentioning it.

One of the cast said it started a week on Monday, which makes sense as Jared's not here yet.
