How did you get started in show business?

I grew up in St. Louis, Missouri. My sisters took dance classes several nights a week, so it was easier for my Mom to just bring me along. I think I was about six when I started taking class. One weekend a bunch of the moms were taking their daughters to audition for The St. Louis MUNY and I tagged along. I marched in place and belted out “You’re a Grand Old Flag” at the top of my lungs and, to my delight and surprise, ended up being cast in the children’s ensemble of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella. I became addicted to performing almost instantaneously. I went on to do shows at The MUNY and other local theaters for many years to come.

How is it working with The Book of Mormon company?

The cast and crew of this production are absolutely incredible. The amount of talent and creativity on stage and behind the scenes is overwhelming. I’m fairly new to the company. I actually joined the tour about 6 weeks ago, and it has been nothing short of a dream come true. I remember seeing “The Book of Mormon” on Broadway when it first came out in 2011 and thinking it was the most hilarious show I had ever seen. I wanted to be a part of it SO badly. So, I still have these moments where I’m like “Whoa I’m really here. This is really happening.” I feel so lucky that I can go to work every day and be a part of such an important, culturally relevant piece of theater that makes people laugh and cry and sometimes gasp in horror and encourages people to think about faith, religion, and the human experience a little differently. It’s awesome.

What connection do you have to San Antonio?

San Antonio holds a special place in my heart because as a kid it was my first family vacation, and the first time I left St. Louis. My family made it an annual thing and we’d drive down in 2 days stopping overnight in Oklahoma City. We’d always visit The Alamo and The River Walk and The Ripley’s Believe it or Not. It’s also were my lifelong obsession with Tex Mex cuisine started. To this day it’s still my favorite.

Tell us a little bit about the show.

“The Book of Mormon” It’s a religious satire which focuses on two young, mismatched Mormon missionaries Elder Price and Elder Cunningham (brilliantly portrayed by Mark Evans and Christopher John O’neill) as they journey to Uganda and learn a little bit about the world, themselves, and what they believe.

What is your character in the show?

I play a Mormon missionary (Elder Young/Neely) as well as Elder Cunningham’s father. I also show up as Jesus and the ghost of Adolf Hitler. So, it’s definitely a wild ride.

What do you like about being on tour?

I love traveling and getting to see parts of the United States that I maybe haven’t seen or don’t get to see often. I love trying local delicacies and restaurants, making new friends as well as seeing old friends who live in some of the cities we’re traveling to. One great thing about this tour’s schedule is that we get to escape a couple months of the cold in Florida!

What don’t you like about being on tour?

The only downfall about being on tour is that you are away from your friends and the people you love. Some of us in the cast have relationships back home and it means making long-distance work. It’s 2013 though so with iPhones, and Facetime and Skype long-distance isn’t what it used to be. It is true that ‘distance makes the heart grow fonder.’ Love will prevail.

The Book of Mormon Mismatched Elders Ben Platt and Nic Rouleau Interview

Ben Platt and Nic Rouleau work side by side in Book of Mormon eight times a week as the mismatched Elders travel to Uganda on their two- year mission. Now settled into their lengthy 11-month run in Chicago, both Rouleau and Platt are able to enjoy the ride. Breaking box office records for the Bank of America Theatre twice last December, the show grossed a record high $1,645,201 for one week of performances.

Ben Platt and Nic Rouleau interviewed by Grant Myatt at – Here is the Interview:

“There’s really nothing like performing this show for an audience, it’s such a rush and it really never gets old” said Rouleau. “I’ve been doing the show for over a year and a half now and I never dread going on stage…it’s always fun and feels like the first time.”

“The day before I was supposed to move I got cast (in Pitch Perfect), so I had to sit with my parents that day for a few hours and talk it through and decide,” said Platt. “It was a pretty easy decision I couldn’t really pass up, and Columbia was very understanding about deferral.”

“About a month before rehearsals were starting, my agent called saying that the creative team from Book of Mormon has heard about you through ‘Pitch Perfect’ and think you might be a good match for Elder Cunningham and they want to see what your take on it is,” said Platt. After going in a couple of times for the part he received the offer, ultimately choosing to put school on hold for “Book of Mormon.”

“I do love school and would consider myself a pretty academic person, but I just thought I’ll never regret taking advantage of these opportunities while they’re here,” said Platt.

“I always wanted to start my own company and start fresh,” said Rouleau. “I never got to sit down with the cast and build the show up from scratch…so it was really great to do a full rehearsal process.”

As a young performer, Platt has received insight on the industry from his father Marc, a Broadway and film producer.

“We are very careful about keeping our careers separate,” said Platt. “I certainly have been lucky to witness what it’s like from a business standpoint…I understand that it’s a commercial venture just as much as it’s an artistic venture.”

Transferring from the Broadway Company that is sold out for months in advance, Rouleau said he was a little nervous about how the Chicago audiences would respond to the “off-beat material.” Rest assured, Chicago audiences have pulled through.

“The show actually runs a little longer than it did in New York, and it’s us having to hold for their laughter and applause…it’s crazy,” Rouleau said.

Amongst the four different productions of “Mormon” in the U.S. and London, Rouleau said the Chicago Company is the youngest.

The Book of Mormon Star James Vincent Meredith Interview for RedEye

James Vincent Meredith co-stars in the Chicago production of ‘The Book of Mormon” interviewed By Julia Borcherts for RedEye.

What was your audition process?
April of this year, I was called in to audition at the equity offices here in town. I had a scene and a few bars of a song. They called me back—maybe a week later at the most—and I did the same thing again with the director in the room and a few more people behind the table [laughs]. And then after that, I just kind of waited and waited and I actually I think I knew via my agent in May or June. But there were so many other things to get worked out that I didn’t really go public with it until the last few weeks. [Laughs]

What did you do when you found out you’d landed the role?
First, I was crazy with excitement and then I got crazy with fear because I haven’t done a musical on this big a stage in…uh…ever.

I think I’d only done one musical before and that was “The King and I” out at Drury Lane Oakbrook—maybe five, six years ago—and I didn’t really have to sing much [laughs], so that was a lot less stressful.

So once I got over the excitement and the following fear, I just got to work and started seeing a vocal coach and tried to learn about as much of the musical as I could before I went to New York for rehearsals.

What’s one of the craziest or most unexpected things that’s happened so far during rehearsals?
At one point, we had finished a run-through and there’s a guy who’s piping in with these notes here and there and I don’t really know who he is but I imagine he’s important because no one is cutting him off and he’s literally sitting right next to our director. And everyone’s taking his notes—and they’re pretty good notes.

So we get through the whole process and at the very end, I’m talking to one of the actors and I’m like, “Should I know this guy?” And they’re like, “Yeah, that’s Trey Parker!” [laughs]

I’m like, “No [bleep]!” I couldn’t believe that that was the guy who was giving us these notes—at the very beginning of rehearsals and through the process, we never really had an opportunity where we met Trey and Matt, and I had never honestly really seen them.

So I actually went up and met him afterwards and told him that and he kind of cracked up.
