Gavin Creel is currently on a third go-round as a West End leading man, following Mary Poppins and Hair, with a knockout turn as Elder Price in The Book of Mormon, which opens March 21 at the Prince of Wales Theatre. Those other London credits were great, of course, but Mormon is something else—it’s an event.
The Book of Mormon marks your third show in London. I mean, I’m very much an American to the core, but I really love being here and pretending it’s home!
Behind the musical are writers Trey Parker, 43, and Matt Stone, 41, who created South Park in 1997.
