Although I think that is expected, that hasn't been confirmed and I doubt a deal will have been done yet!

It was rumored he'd be in the UK for six months only, but I remember having read an imterview with Gavin where he said he'd have a one year contract.

I saw this for a third  time last week. Still good fun, and strong cast.

However, I still find the deliberate corpsing after "I believe" to be painfully unfunny. And it must be deliberate as they both corpsed again each time. Was the same in Hairspray during "timeless to me". I don't mind genuine corpsing, but when it is clearly "staged" it is more than a bit lame. Ok, perhaps for someone seeing it first time it is hilarious....but even so.

I dont remember corpsing when I saw BOM at all? Must have either not taken much notice or forgotten

The Hairspray corpsing has always been slightly different eachtime I saw it and it depended on the cast how  genuine it seemed. Mostly though it was well done and funny

The Hairspray corpsing was cringeworthy

Then i have been unlucky with BOM each time. The only wildly jarring note in an otherwise excellent show.

I've seen it 3 times and there was no corpsing at the end of I Believe, so I doubt it was deliberate.

Mark Evans recently tweeted that he'd be staying with the US tour of Mormon for a further six months, to the end of the year.  Though given that cast changes for this show tend to happen unannounced (or at least not until they have happened) - I'm not sure such a statement means much.
