About The Book of Mormon
The Book of Mormon is a fantastic, funny and fast-paced musical crafted by the self-same people who created South Park, the hilarious US cartoon series. The music, lyrics and book are by Trey Parker, Robert Lopez, and Matt Stone. It's the winner of nine Tony Awards including Best Musical. Originally staged for the first time in 2011, it's a brilliant satire about the Mormon Church - the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints - their beliefs, and their practices.
What's the story of The Book of Mormon?
The Book of Mormon tells the story of two Mormon missionaries sent from home in Salt Lake City to preach in a village in faraway Uganda. The earnest young men find themselves unexpectedly challenged by the locals' sheer lack of interest. They're busy dealing with much more important issues, horrors like AIDS, starvation, oppression and female genital mutilation. The end result is completely hilarious, very clever, 'raucous' and 'obscene'.

What are people saying about The Book of Mormon?
- Entertainment Weekly - "A spectacular, rather perfect Broadway musical not only grounded in a serious love and understanding of the traditions that make a Broadway musical great but also filled with love for the very flawed, mortal characters who populate this romp."
- The Hollywood Reporter - "Parker and Stone have created one of the freshest original musicals in recent memory. It has tuneful songs, clever lyrics, winning characters, explosive laughs and disarmingly intimate moments."
- The Guardian - "It sent an enraptured, ecstatic audience home with an odd sense of having come, somehow, to really like"
