Local grad makes it to Broadway

Original post made on Jul 12, 2012

Gee, the girl who made the remark about his facial expression made her point with such passion that it brought a tear to my eye.
And the non quotes of the drama teacher, Beth Orr, was so overwhelmed as to appear a bit jealous.....
THE BOOK OF MORMON is a fantastically written and very funny show which does is very outrageous for most conservative minds.
I personally did not see him the night I went to the show, but it is the best thing on Broadway and a sell out.
The author of the article, certainly did not cover what deserved to be more kudos for this young man who, apparently, has more talent than was described.

A hearty congratulations to Nic Rouleau! I worked with Nic at Peninsula Youth Theatre (PYT) in the 1990s. I was choreographer for several productions with PYT during Nic's time with the company. I remember Nic well. He was not only hard-working and very talented, but he showed a kind heart toward the younger, less-experienced students and was very respectful to the adults on staff. I am so happy to read of his successes thus far. Broadway is lucky to have Nic Rouleau. Bravo!

I happened to be at Nic's Broadway debut in Book of Mormon last year. He was perfect!! Now you can see him 8 shows a week as the permanent Elder Price, a leading role! He opened the Tony's this year saying to Ricky Martin, " Hello! My name is Elder Price...." Even Nic admits, "I can't believe my life!"
Go see him in NYC!! You won't be disappointed!
