The Book of Mormon was written by the creators of the cult TV hit South Park, The Book of Mormon has been playing in the West End at the Prince of Wales Theatre since 2013. It has fully established itself as one of London’s most popular musicals and one of the hottest tickets in town. Heralded "the best musical of the century" by the New York Times when it opened on Broadway in 2011, Mormon arrived in London to instant success, winning four Olivier Awards including Best New Musical.
The show follows the journey of two Mormon missionaries who travel to Africa to preach their religion. They share their scriptures with a small village in Uganda, but find it difficult to interest the locals who have much bigger things to worry about: AIDS, famine, and local warlords. It features hilarious songs like “Hello”, “All American Prophet”, “I Believe” and “I Am Africa”.
Choreography for The Book of Mormon is by Casey Nicholaw, who co-directs the show with Parker. Nicholaw is renowned in musical theatre and his work is currently also on display in the West End production of Aladdin. He is known for his high energy production numbers and unique skill at staging musical comedy.
