"I feel like we can all relate to being a teenager when you knew how the world worked and you were confident you were going to go out and conquer everything. Immediately. That’s how I relate to the character of Price. When I was graduating high school, and then college, I thought that the world would instantly respond to me being there. As it turns out, everything takes time and a lot of hard work, and sometimes, like in the show, you have to look at things from a different perspective."

Nyk Bielak will be on as Elder Cunningham for the next couple of weeks. Tonight was his first performance with the first national tour after transferring from the second (via Broadway). Congratulations, Nyk!

Fifteen years ago David Larsen effectively left the Portland area, attending Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, living briefly in Los Angeles and then settling down and establishing his acting career in New York City with his wife, Amanda Kloots Larsen.

This week, Larsen returns triumphantly, starring in the ultra-successful Broadway musical “The Book of Mormon,” playing Elder Price, an alpha-male do-gooder who thinks highly of himself.

To the contrary, as much as he has been through in 15 years, Larsen has been humbled by such notoriety.

“I feel fortunate to continue to work in this business,” says Larsen, 34, a Hillsboro High School graduate. “I’m glad that it happened. I’ve been working toward it for a long time.”
