Get ready to laugh until you cry at The Book of Mormon, a show hailed as both “the best musical of this century” and the “funniest musical of all time.” From Trey Parker and
Matt Stone, the no-holds-barred creators of South Park, the show satirizes Mormon practices and beliefs in a way that can even make LDS members laugh. This bold, brash, and delightfully offensive
production has been selling out tickets since 2011, so don’t miss the chance to see The Book of Mormon for yourself.
Together with Robert Lopez, the co-creator of Broadway sensation Avenue Q, Parker and Stone bring to the stage the story of 2 Mormon missionaries on a journey to share their scriptures with a tiny Ugandan village. The tale follows the hilarious misadventures of mismatched duo Cunningham and Price as they struggle to convert the villagers, who are far more preoccupied with problems like racism, AIDS, famine, and the threat of death at the hands of a warlord. While the show undoubtedly talks about tough topics, it does so with humor and heart, leaving the audience feeling touched and uplifted by the time the curtain falls.
The Broadway production of The Book of Mormon was nominated for 13 Tony Awards, winning 9 including Best Musical, Best Book, and Best Original Score. The cast recording won the 2012 Grammy for Best Musical Theater Album, with hit songs such as “Hello,” “All-American Prophet,” “Making Things Up Again,” and “Tomorrow Is a Latter Day.” With tickets being sold for shows at New York City’s Eugene O’Neill Theatre, as well as across the United States in 2018, there are more chances than ever to get your Mormon on.
