'The Book of Mormon' show information
'The Book of Mormon', 'South Park' creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone's comedy musical about a pair of hapless Mormon missionaries, won nine gongs at last year's Tony awards. It's so extravagantly sold-out on Broadway – and with such expensive tickets – that this wildly anticipated West End production may conceivably find itself filled up with impatient New Yorkers flying over for a bargain night out.
Mormonism being a largely American affair, it's conceivable that the musical – written with 'Avenue Q' creator Robert Lopez – may not have quite the same blockbuster impact over here. But it's unlikely: Parker and Stone enjoy an enormous fanbase and considerable critical respect for their bluntly absurd satire and Broadway-pastiching songs (including the Oscar-nominated 'Blame Canada'). With 'The Book of Mormon's rapturous US reviews and liability to pull in the elusive heterosexual male dollar, the title of West End blockbuster of 2013 is its to win.
'This is a big-hearted affair that pays note-perfect homage to the spirit of Broadway’s golden age as much as the sounds. Trey Parker and Matt Stone are not West End messiahs. But they are very naughty boys, and it’s hard not to love their smash musical.'
