The Book Of Mormon
- Watch this hilarious musical comedy, brought to you by the creators of South Park.
The Book of Mormon London at the Prince of Wales Theatre
The Book of Mormon comes to the West End to delight the audiences once more. Winner of nine Tony Awards in 2011, the acclaimed musical opens at the Prince of Wales Theatre. It achieved several sell-out shows and highly positive reviews with its delivery. It has since become one of the hottest shows in the West End. When it debuted on Broadway a decade ago, its exciting story took the critics and spectators by storm and secured its place in the history of theatre. Now, The Book of Mormon London production is here, and this is the perfect time for you to book the tickets. With an anticipating crowd, they will sell out in no time!
How the Show was Created
The box office spectacular is the work of Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the famous duo that created South Park, and Robert Lopez, Disney’s Frozen film music composer and co-creator of Avenue Q. The Book of Mormon is inspired by one of South Park’s episodes that aired on Comedy Central in 2003. Parker and Stone were so inspired by “All About Mormons” that they decided to make a stage production using its elements.
Although the show is a parody of Mormonism, the creators had a difficult time in their attempts to make fun as Mormons are generally friendly and nice people. The Book of Mormon London production follows two Mormon missionaries as they go to a small Ugandan village and try to preach the faith of the church to the people. However, it is not going to be an easy task. The inhabitants are more concerned with famine, AIDS, and an evil warlord.
The musical, with its captivating delivery, amassed overwhelming responses. It bagged a Grammy Award for Best Musical Theatre Album and the Tony Award for Best Musical. In the West End, the show first opened in 2013, after which it had two US national tours. It also grossed over $500 million and is one of the most loved theatre musicals in the world.
A Smash-Hit Musical for Good Reason!
The Book of Mormon comprises some of the best songs in theatre. Tracks like “Baptize Me”, “Spooky Mormon Hell Dream”, “All American Prophet”, “Tomorrow Is a Latter Day”, and “I Believe” are perhaps the best in the list. In 2013, the Original Broadway Cast Recording was released. It then went on to become Broadway’s fastest-selling cast album in iTunes history. The album also rose to the Top 5 of the Billboard 200 charts.
Following its highly acclaimed West End premiere, it won the 2013 Evening Standard Award for Best Night Out, as well as four 2014 Olivier Awards including the Best Actor in a Musical (Gavin Creel), Best New Musical, Best Theatre Choreographer (Casey Nicholaw), and Best Performance in a Supporting Role in a Musical (Stephen Ashfield). Playing at the Prince of Wales Theatre now, tickets to The Book of Mormon London production are expected to sell out fast, so book yours today!
“Parker, Stone and Lopez deliver gasps, laughs and vibrant new songs in the way that only great writers can. The result isn’t just great: it’s Mormonumental.”
