The multi-Tony and Olivier Award-winning musical, The Book Of Mormon, from the writers of South Park, continues to have West End audiences knocking on its door.

Written by the animated sitcom’s creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, along with Avenue Q co-creator Robert Lopez, The Book Of Mormon is a satirical musical that takes shots at everything from organised religion to consumerism, the state of the economy and the musical theatre genre itself.

Set in a small town in Uganda, the controversial and hilarious musical tells the story of two young Mormon missionaries who are bringing the news of the Latter Day saints to local villagers. Shocked at the cultural divide, the duo must battle to share the scriptures with the local people, who are more concerned with war, famine, poverty and AIDS than religion.

In 2003, after writers Trey and Matt watched Avenue Q, they began developing The Book Of Mormon with Robert. For context, the trio took a trip to Salt Lake City to meet with current and former Mormon Missionaries. After nearly seven years of development, the show opened on Broadway to critical and audience acclaim.

Featuring the songs Spooky Mormon Hell Dream, I Am Africa, Baptize Me, All American Prophet and Tomorrow Is A Latter Day, The Book Of Mormon, which won nine Tony Awards after opening at Broadway’s Eugene O’Neill’s Theatre in 2011 and claimed four, including Best New Musical, at the Olivier Awards in 2014, was brought to the West End by the original creative team two years later.

The Book Of Mormon has been entertaining London’s West End audiences ever since 2013, and can now be seen in Melbourne and the United States in a national tour.

The West End cast is led by KJ Hippensteel (Elder Price), Cody Jamison Strand (Elder Cunningham) and Leanne Robinson (Nabulungi). Cody and Leanne both make their West End debut in this production after performing in the US tour.

With tongue firmly in cheek, The Book Of Mormon’s huge heart and laughs make for too good a musical to miss.
