The Book of Mormon is the creation of South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone. They joined forces with Avenue Q's Robert Lopez after watching the puppet musical. The trio flew to Salt Lake City to do research, meeting with Mormon missionaries to develop the plot. After seven long years of development, The Book of Mormon finally opened on Broadway in 2011. It arrived at the Prince of Wales Theatre in the West End two years later. The most recent UK tour started a sell-out run starting at Manchester's Palace Theatre. The tour was soon extended due to popular demand.
The story centres around two Mormon missionaries, Elder Price and Elder Cunningham. The mismatched pair travel to a remote Ugandan village to spread the word about the Book of Mormon. However, they aren't ready for what they encounter. It seems the local villagers are too busy dealing with disease, famine, and dangerous warlords.
The Book of Mormon draws on all of South Park's sarcasm and provocative humour, all while keeping a kind heart. Whether it's hilarious songs like 'Hasa Diga Eebowai' and 'All-American Prophet' or pop culture jokes, the satire cleverly tackles sensitive themes. It's also bursting with colourful, unforgettable characters like Nabulungi, Mafala and the evil General.
The musical has proved to be wildly popular across the world. It dares to break boundaries, making audiences leaving theatres both shocked and entertained. It's unlike any other musical, bringing theatre to the masses and unapologetically poking fun at everything and everyone.
It's no wonder that The New York Times hailed The Book of Mormon as 'The Best Musical of This Century'. And with tickets rapidly selling out in all corners of the world, the musical is sure to go down in history.
