19 Insanely Great Videos of Gavin Creel, Because He’s Elder Price Now

It’s one of our favorite theater moments ever — the one wherein Gavin Creel stepped onstage in Thoroughly Modern Millie, sang about four notes and made us fall instantly and madly in love with him and his golden pipes of magnificence. Ever since then, we’ve been more or less obsessed with his handsome, exceptionally tall self in more or less everything he’s done including a role that we may never actually see him play: Elder Price in The Book of Mormon. Why won’t we ever see it? Well… have you ever tried getting tickets to The Book of Mormon? Yeah, well… yeah. Here’s a small tribute to Gavs, featuring our absolute favorite Creel-related YouTube videos, including his semi-duet with Aaron Tveit, his solidly breathtaking turn as Melchior Primo in Spring Awakening, and his take on a Next to Normal song… before it was a Next to Normal song. We’ve also included his famous underwear dance, and his bleary backstage Tony Awards interview with Andrew Rannells from a few years ago. Just for fun. Or just because those things are absolutely necessary for your health and happiness. Enjoy!

    (I am watching all of these videos because I’m super bored at work)

    I’ve never seen the Side By Side with Susan Blackwell video and a) it was joyful but b) I’m trying to decide if I judge myself for spending most of the video wondering which of Gavin’s understudies she saw.

    THANK YOU for putting this list together. I just—thank you. SO MUCH.

    There is no other way I’d prefer to procrastinate studying for final exams.
