Actor Matt Doyle (and a 2011 Out100 honoree) will return to the Broadway stage as Elder Price in the award-winning musical The Book of Mormon. The young performer will replace Nic Rouleau in the New York-based cast, who will continue to play the role during the musical's second national tour. A premiere date has not yet been set for the new cast, though Doyle is already well into prep, as seen from a photo the actor tweeted Friday of his script and the LDS holy book (pictured).
With such big roles already behind him, Doyle makes a natural casting choice for a new, impossible-to-get-tickets production of Mormon. But that doesn't mean Matt has stopped striving for new creative outlets: He's also released an EP, "Constant."
The show's national tour kicks off December 11 with performances at Chicago's Bank of America Theater.
