The Book Of Mormon
- Watch this hilarious musical comedy, brought to you by the creators of South Park.
See the Book of Mormon London production!
The Book of Mormon debuted on the Broadway stage in 2011. Its unique story and premise swept audiences and critics off their feet. The production earned 9 Tony Awards that same year, securing its place in theatre history. The musical comedy deals with Mormonism and how religion is only a small part of people’s lives. The Book of Mormon London production is here at the Prince of Wales Theatre. Those interested should reserve their seats today.
The story behind the musical’s inception
Creators of the wildly popular TV animated comedy series South Park, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, wrote the Book of Mormon. The duo was inspired by a 2003 episode from their television show, titled ‘All About Mormons’. Although the creators parodied the culture of Mormons in the episode, they were struck by just how friendly these people are in real life. This inspired Parker and Stone to write a story that dealt with Mormonism, but with other aspects as well.
Exceptional storytelling with mature humour
South Park fans know that the creative duo has a very in-your-face approach toward comedy. Their plots feature crass and disturbing jokes that are nonetheless rib-tickling. However, this form of comedy does not appeal to everyone. Still, The Book of Mormon met with almost global praise.
The plot deals with two Mormon missionaries who travel to a small town in Uganda. They aim to preach the words of the Latter Day Saints and convert those residing in the town. However, as they arrive in these parts, the Missionaries begin to appreciate the difficulty of their task. The Ugandan village is wrought with AIDS, poverty, starvation and oppression.
Stone and Parker’s excellent writing make The Book of Mormon one of the best dark humour stories of recent times. Those ready for the funny and emotional rollercoaster can book The Book of Mormon London tickets soon.
Walk into the matinee or evening shows of your choice
The production’s run at the Prince of Wales Theatre extends until February 8, 2020. Between Mondays and Saturdays, evening shows start at 7.30 PM every day. For those looking for earlier shows, the 2.30 PM slot on Wednesdays and Saturdays offer an excellent alternative. The popularity of the musical, along with its limited run, can cause the 1160-seater venue to fill up fast. Those booking The Book of Mormon London early are more likely to find better seats.
The two and a half hour production is suitable for people aged 17 years and above, due to the mature themes and handling of the story. Keep in mind, the runtime includes an intermission as well.
The venue is equipped with an in-house lounge, offering relaxation and drinks to visitors. Outside food is strictly restricted in the theatre. Enjoy a meal at one of the nearby restaurants before or after the show. Remember that the air-conditioning is turned on inside the venue throughout the year.
