But Gavin Creels voice is fabulous..?! Maybe he's ill

Maybe, I'll have to see it again to compare (such a hardship) ;) Last night at least his voice didn't sound very strong and he kept running out of air.

They have 2 Cunningham standbys just like 2 covers for any other part however because Cunningham needs to stand out and look so different from the other Elders his covers cannot be a part of the cast hence y they are offstage and called standbys. Price, McKinley, General, Mafala etc all have 2 covers as well x

That said, the second understudy in all 3 American productions is one of the ensemble guys (and indeed, the lead Cunningham in Chicago is very different to the traditional Cunningham look too).

I can only comment on the London Production as that is what I know.

I too saw the dress rehearsal and thought it was fantastic! I worried a show that poked fun at everything would simply become a two and a half hour pantomime (similar to  Spamalot) but this show has lots of heart.
If anyone has any questions, I'd be happy to answer

Is the set similar to the broadway version, is the white arch around the stage still there with the planets above it?

Yes, from what I've seen in pictures of the Broadway set, it looks identical.

I have a sneaky audio of of creel in the US Tour production, and his voice doesnt have the lightness that Andrew Rannells has, The score was adjusted for Rannells' voice, which is pretty high, and he hits some amazing notes. Creel's voice doesnt sit as high naturally, so i think he has to work harder to reach all the top notes. Rannells voice also has so much character to it, and IMO, whilst Creel has a great voice, its pretty bland.
