Josh Gad Reveals 'The Book of Mormon' Was Filmed with the Original Broadway Cast

Josh Gad has some good news for fans of Broadway who might want to see more shows at home, just like Hamilton.

The Tony-nominated actor has revealed that The Book of Mormon was filmed with the original Broadway cast, though he has never watched the footage.

“A lot of people are asking me and yes, there is a tape that exists somewhere of the original cast of #BookOfMormon – we shot it in the last few months I was there but I have never seen it,” Josh said.

While Hamilton was filmed with the intention of making a film for theatrical release, it’s not known if The Book of Mormon was shot with the same intent. Most Broadway shows are shot for archival purposes and many recordings are available to be viewed at the New York Public Library.

The original Broadway cast of The Book Mormon featured Josh, Andrew Rannells, and Tony winner Nikki M. James. The show took home nine Tony Awards in 2011 and it has been a smash hit for nearly a decade now.
