Mormon Cabaret Features Nic Rouleau, Will Blum, Jason Michael Snow and More
By Adam Hetrick
Book of Mormon cast members Nic Rouleau, Will Blum and Jason Michael Snow are part of the July 16 benefit concert Mormons: A Musical Cabaret of Godly Proportions.
The 9 PM cabaret, hosted by Ryan Simmons at the Triad, serves as a benefit for the 2012 FringeNYC production of Matthew Greene's play #MormonInChief.
Joining Rouleau, Blum and Snow are Nikki Bohne (Bring It On), Stephanie Umoh (Ragtime), Kendal Hartse (On a Clear Day...), Karis Danish, Seth Baird, Jeremiah Ginn, Becca Schwartz and Jeffrey Scott Stevens.
The concert promises musical theatre songs for "saints and sinners alike."
#MormonInChief, according to presenters, tells the story of Connor Jorgensen, "an unassuming Mormon who becomes the center of national media frenzy when his tweets about a Mormon presidential candidate go viral. Inspired by comments the candidate allegedly made in a church meeting, Connor spreads his presidential pick's views on 'the gays, gangsters and bleeding hearts,' leading ambitious reporter Lydia Strout to his door. As Lydia tries to find the man hiding behind the orthodox Mormon facade, and Connor navigates the unfamiliar world of Tweets, news feeds, and blogs, both are forced to confront the choice between living by facts or walking by faith."
