From its first appearance, the production has secured nine Tony Awards, which includes Outstanding Musical, for its provocative comedy and catchy tunes that have subsequently turned many into ardent musical theatre fans!

Ready yourself to be enlightened as you follow this inspiring and timely narrative of faith, companionship and culture. The Future Is Bright, but make sure you book your tickets promptly! Take action and secure your seats as soon as possible!

Trey Parker and Matt Stone, creators of South Park, Orgazmo, and Cannibal! The Musical, join the creative talents of Robert Lopez to deliver “The Book of Mormon”, one of this season’s filthiest, most offensive, and surprisingly sweet musicals on Broadway Today! This musical comes hot off the heels of the satirical success of South Park episode “All About Mormons” as well as the “Super Best Friends” to tell a story that lampoons and celebrates the Mormon faith.

The musical tells the tale of a pair of Latter-Day Saints missionaries who have come to a remote Ugandan village with the hopes of spreading the faith and inspiring the villagers. But trouble comes when their intentions are met with apathy, since the villagers have more pressing concerns with HIV/AIDS, famine, and oppression from the village warlords. As the story unfolds, we find the missionaries’ faith tested by the harsh and stressful realities they have discovered and how stories and metaphors can lead to a brighter future and hope, even as war and violence remains a part of one’s life.

This combination of extremely dark themes and inspirational messages comes together in a way that Ben Brantley of The New York Times has compared favorably to Rodgers and Hammerstein classic “The King and I”. He has even said that its “…setting these dark elements to sunny melodies…achieves something like a miracle. It both makes fun of and ardently embraces the all-American art form of the inspirational book musical.” Jon Stewart has even had nothing but praise to offer to the makers for the play during a March 10, 2011 episode of The Daily Show that first talks about the production.

If you want to see this award-winning and universally acclaimed production for yourself, then catch The Book of Mormon live at the illustrious Eugene O'Neill Theatre in New York, New York on Tuesday 25th June 2024!
