I want to hear more about toilet roll bot.
I have always hated eggs. I remember back when I was a sperm I tried to head-butt one. It did not end well.

So, Dan Mackinlay made his Elder Price debut tonight. Anyone see it?

I think he might be on all week as Gavin is on holiday (I think) and Luke Newton mentioned something about being on for someone all week.

Not sure you'll get a reply yet - the show's not finished!  

Luke is on for Ashley Day who is also off this week.  Luke was 2nd cover for Elder Price, so I'm not quite sure why he's not on as Price unless Evan and Ben are on in different tracks.

Just to note that David O'Reilly was on as Elder Cunningham last night for the first time - initial reviews of him are that he's funnier than Dan.

Do Evan, Luke, Ben and Matt all cover the seven mormon boy tracks or do they split the 7 among them do you know?

I thought he was very good - singing was great and he was a very naive/innocent Cunningham.  He wasn't as funny as Jared though.

I was at the show tonight, but I'm not sure I can help as it was my first time so I have no frame of reference!

Dan Mackinlay was great though, according to his twitter he was only given half an hours notice, but I'd never have guessed as he was very confident.

David O'Reilly was brilliant, incredibly funny. I'm sure they only announced that Dan was covering Elder Price, so it wasn't until the interval that I spotted the Elder Cunningham in the programme was not the one on stage.

What an amazing show... I managed to stay spoiler free to get the most out of it, so now I've got 85 pages of WoS comments to get through ;)

I went yesterday and David was on as Cunningham. He was really funny and has great energy! His Nabalungi ad-libs were hilarious and there was one which absolutely brought the house down!
A few of the swings were also on and they were brilliant too!

I was there yesterday matinee too and it was amazing. David did very well. Stand-out performers definitely Stephen and Alexia but you can tell Gavin Creel just fits the show and Price like a glove.
