South Park’s Trey Parker and Matt Stone and Avenue Q’s Robert Lopez combine their wicked humor in this story about Elder Price, a missionary who dreams of going to Florida for his two-year posting. His luck runs out, however, when he is paired with the hapless Elder Cunningham and sent to a remote Ugandan village. The duo are optimistic about converting the locals to their faith, but realize it may be more challenging than expected.
With catchy songs including “Hello”, “Baptize Me” and “I Believe”, The Book of Mormon is a hilarious and touching story that doesn’t pull its punches.
Kevin Clay makes his Broadway debut as Elder Price, after playing the role on national tour. His other credits include regional productions of Gypsy and West Side Story. Cody Jamison Strand, who has travelled across the US, Canada, and London as Elder Cunningham, joins him on Broadway. Other cast members include Kim Exum (For The Last Time) and Stephen Ashfield (West End: Legally Blonde, Jersey Boys).
The musical features a book, music and lyrics by Trey Parker, Robert Lopez and Matt Stone, who are best known for work on South Park and Avenue Q. Parker also co-directs with choreographer Casey Nicholaw (Disney’s Aladdin on Broadway). The creative team also includes scenic designer Scott Pask (Mean Girls, Waitress).
With its killer mix of satirical gags and an uplifting message, The Book of Mormon at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre is one of a kind.
