The Book of Mormon musical story follows two young missionaries who travel from Utah to Uganda, where they hope to convert people in a remote village by sharing their scriptures. They are met by resistance and the harsh cruelties that are part of everyday Ugandan life. Yet it’s from just such tragedies — AIDS, famine, female circumcision — that Stone and Parker derive the musical’s most comedic moments.

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.

Ben Platt Will Join The Book of Mormon Tour December 2012 in Chicago

Ben Platt will be joining the national touring cast of “The Book of Mormon” beginning December 11, 2012 in Chicago.

Created by “South Park” writers Trey Parker and Matt Stone, in collaboration with Robert Lopez, the songwriter from “Avenue Q,” “The Book of Mormon” made a splash when it hit Broadway in 2011, winning nine Tony Awards, including “Best Original Score” and “Best Musical.” Platt will play Elder Cunningham, played by Josh Gad in the original Broadway cast. He will perform alongside Nic Rouleau, who will be playing the role of Elder Price. Rouleau is currently in the Broadway cast of “The Book of Mormon” in the same role.

Zoë Miller of Spectator talked to Platt about his experience with musical theater, his process, and what it’s like being in a feature film.

What is your past experience with theater? How did you get to where you are now?
Ben Platt: I’ve been doing professional musical theater since I was nine or 10 years old. I used to do a lot of stuff as a kid, and then all through middle school and high school I would do a job here and there, whatever I could do while staying in school. And the movie was right out of high school.

What led you to audition for “The Book of Mormon,” specifically? How did the opportunity arise?
BP: So, during the fall I would go in for a few things here and there. Because of school I would only go for really big projects or things that would be really big for my career, not sort of everyday auditions. Otherwise, I wouldn’t be able to stay in school. What happened was, one of the people on the creative team saw “Pitch Perfect” and thought that my interpretation of my character Benji would be a really good match for Elder Cunningham in “Book of Mormon,” so … she had me come in, and I went through, I believe, three rounds of auditions.

How do you prepare for your various roles?
BP: For film and theater, your preparation is different, because for film, you’re kind of working towards one incident for each scene. You create each scene only once. For theater, you have to … sort of create this cycle that your body is used to where you can complete a full character’s journey any time, so, eight times a week, or however many times a week. My biggest challenge so far has been—apart from just finding the character and figuring out what my take on it is, because I’m a bit different from the guy that usually plays the character­—has been just the stamina, the cardio of it, because you can never really leave the stage. You’ve got song after song­—you don’t get a lot of down time.

Do you prefer being in films or in theatrical productions? Why?
BP: I certainly love the experience of the movie, and I can really appreciate the subtleties of it. But just because of, you know, growing up, and because I fell in love with theater from a really young age, I think that will always be my most favorite thing.

Were there any movies, shows, or actors that were really influential in making the decision to become an actor yourself?
BP: I’m not sure if it was actors, or more that I grew up and my dad was in the business. He, you know, would play us musicals in the car every day. So, I grew up sort of knowing all about … what’s a revival, what’s an original show, like all this sort of Broadway information you know if you grow up in New York. I think that was what set me on the track. I ended up being the only one that really wanted to stick with it—fell enough in love that I wanted to make a career out of it.
