While I would like a souvenir programme too, I fear it may be very expensive as well... The one on Broadway is $25 iirc.

What bothers me most about the broadway brochure is that it is packed with pictures of the original cast... I was a little disappointed as I had seen all the pictures at the coffee table book already... Since Andrew and Josh (and even Rory) have left long ago, they could have changed at least some of the pictures...
I bought it because they didn't have brochures when I saw it in London (and still don't have them now) but it was definitely overpriced.
It's true that broadway is more expensive, but all the other shows I saw had 20$ brochures, which is still expensive but Mormon tops that with additional 5$...
Also Mormon seems to be the only show on Broadway that doesn't give out souvenir cups at the bar but sells them for a lot more money as merchandise...

They have 2 full pages of photos in the programme, so I doubt we'll see a brochure

This makes me feel slightly better as I thought I'd miss out getting them when I went to see the show! Mormon was the first (of many) shows we saw on our trip and because of that we didn't know about the souvenir cups yet. Did get some from other shows we saw ^_^

It's a Scott Rudin joke a bit like when Harvey Weinstein announced he had given up cigarettes Scott (allegedly) sent him round a carton of 200

So I'll finally get to see the understudy of the year! So excited to see Ashley as Elder Price!

Edit: thought Ashley was a fab Elder Price. Acted the part really well and showed some superb vocals. And finally someone who's I'm nineteen sounded believable.

Quite strange though: Sat in the Circle with no free seat available. When I looked around in the second act I spotted 8-10 free seats, so a few people must have left at the interval. Everybody else (including myself) seemed to have thoroughly enjoyed it.

When did they change the announcement? At my last visit in May it was still the 1 minute break before the actual start, but they started yesterday immediately after they said that Ashley was on.
