The Book of Mormon 2013
The Book of Mormon is a critically acclaimed Broadway Musical from Trey Parker, Robert Lopez and Matt Stone, the creators of the popular animated series South Park. Book of Mormon tickets are available now!
The Book of Mormon invites you to learn the story of two young missionaries, Elder Price and Elder Cunningham, who try to help and restore faith to a small troubled village in Uganda. The book of Mormon (one of their scriptures) is used in a way to connect with the villagers; however the missionaries are faced with a number of issues. Firstly, due to the incompetence of Cunningham, who has not read or studied the book, and secondly as the villagers are more focused upon other concerns regarding war, poverty, aids and of course the resident warlord. The demand for the Book of Mormon tickets has been somewhat overwhelming.
The first show premiered on Broadway at the Eugene O’Neill theatre in March 2011, before starting its first US National Tour in 2012, launching in Denver, Colorado which reportedly sold all Book of Mormon tickets within five hours of sale.
Furthermore a UK production debuted in February 2013 at the Prince of Wales theatre, with the London tour of The Book of Mormon advertising tickets as a must have. The musical received outstanding acclimations, boasting 9 Tony awards including Best Musical and a Grammy award for best musical theatre album. Additionally The Book of Mormon cast album set a new record for sales, previously held by Phantom of the Opera.
Finally with a promising cast including Gavin Creel as Elder Price and Jared Gretner as Elder Cunnigham, together, the original cast members from both the first US tour and the West End tour, along with prestigious careers to vaunt, this musical promises to be a humorous and enjoyable experience for all, with many of The Book of Mormon tickets still available to purchase.
