The production opened directly on to Broadway (a rarity in the times of the out of town try out) back in 2011 and was an instant hit. A West End production quickly followed. The show received a staggering nine Tony Awards and four Olivier’s including Best New musical.
Response to the show has been monumental, with critics falling over themselves to sing its praises and it becoming one of the hottest tickets in the West End. The musical has really impressed as, as well as being hilariously shocking, it also perfectly conforms to the style of a traditional book musical.
The plot focuses on Mormon missionary, Elder Price, whose dreams of going to Orlando Florida are cruelly dashed when he is paired with the hapless Elder Cunningham and sent to a remote village in Uganda. In true Mormon style the boys remain optimistic of converting the local population but on discovering that the locals are terrorised by a warlord as well as dealing with poverty, famine and AIDS they realise that their task is going to be harder than they ever imagined.
The show contains more than one reference to Disney’s The Lion King and it takes punches at everything from organised religion to Starbucks in what is an endlessly entertaining ride.
The now familiar score includes stand out songs “Hello”, “Turn it Off”, “I Believe” and “Baptize Me”. The cast album became the highest charting Broadway cast album in over forty years and was even Awarded with a Grammy.
Considered by many to be the funniest musical ever written and equipped with a genuinely uplifting story, this really is one musical you will be wanting to say “Hello” to, so don't miss out and buy your Book of Mormon tickets now.
