The perfect Broadway musical. Behold The Book of Mormon. An exhilarating Broadway musical at once revolutionary and classic, hilarious and humane, funny and obscene, uncompromising in production standards and unafraid of just about anything.
In 2011, following a storming reception at its Denver premiere, the four-time Emmy Award-winning creators of South Park, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, gifted the world with this outrageously funny Broadway musical about a pair of mismatched Mormon missionaries sent on to a place that's about as far from Salt Lake City as you can get. Replete with 19 original, hilarious songs and plenty of eyebrow-raising lines (and peppered with more than a handful of expletives), The Book of Mormon isn't for the faint-hearted or easily offended, but has already won over a whole new generation of musical theatre fans.
The Book of Mormon has had awards heaped upon it, earning 13 Tony nominations in 2012 and going to win nine of them including Best New Musical. In the same year, it also won four Drama Desk Awards, four Outer Critics Circle Awards, and even a Grammy Award in 2012! This smash-hit musical was written in collaboration with Robert Lopez, the Tony Award-winning writer of Avenue Q, and co-directed by Mr. Parker and three-time Tony nominee Casey Nicholaw (Spamalot, The Drowsy Chaperone).
'The greatest time of a Mormon kid's life is his mission,' sings Elder Kevin Price before finding out where and who with, his journey will begin. But things are not as the handsome and pious Elder Price predicted when he's paired up with the hapless and puppy-like Elder Cunningham and sent off to the wilds of ...UGANDA! Disneyland this isn't, boys.
Their adventure unfolds as Elders Price and Cunningham attempt to preach The Book Of Mormon to a Ugandan rural community that has been blighted by disease and ruled over by an evil war lord. Despite some truly cringeworthy false starts and misunderstandings they learn about themselves, the true meaning of friendship and what their religion ultimately means to them.
Perfection takes time, and unlike the world, The Book of Mormon wasn't created in six days, and there certainly wasn't a day of rest. In 2003, Robert Lopez, Trey Parker and Matt Stone began discussing the creation of The Book of Mormon. After a long bumpy road, The Book of Mormon made its Broadway debut in March 2011, and can be seen in theatres across the world.
