Emily Goss: Absolutely Book of Mormon! He would be hysterical [as] Elder Price. I think a white shirt, book, and an MTC badge is in his future!
The Book of Mormon was another popular choice for Tveit, whose preppy good looks and wholesome charm would be well-suited to the role of Elder Price. And we know he could sing a great rendition of "I Believe."
Tveit sang a moving rendition of "If I Loved You" from Carousel at his 54 Below concert and told the audience the role of Billy Bigelow is one of his dream roles. Maybe his dream will come true sooner than expected!

Anything Disney - and royalty - would be well-suited to Tveit, according to his fans.
Tveit could follow in the footsteps of his Les Misérables co-star Hugh Jackman, who played the role of Joe Gillis in Australia. Playing the down-on-his-luck screenwriter who is seduced into a world of forgotten glamour, Tveit would certainly be believable as the object of Norma Desmond's obsession.

This would certainly be a change of pace for Tveit, and the score, which includes the song, "Anything For Him," which many of his fans would want to sing along to.
If Tveit were cast as Aaron Samuels in the musical adaptation of the hit movie by Tina Fey, that casting would be so fetch.
