The Book of Mormon Tickets
UPDATE: This production is temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Book of Mormon will reopen at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre.
Jam-packed with satirical humour by South Park writers Trey Parker and Matt Stone, as well as Robert Lopez, The Book of Mormon is a fast-paced, no-holds-barred production.
Taking Broadway and the rest of the world by storm, when this outrageous musical comedy officially opened at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre on March 24, 2011, the New York Times hailed it as "the best musical of the century." The show went on to collect an astonishing nine Tonyss, including best musical. Original cast members Andrew Rannells and Josh Gad (Elder Price and Elder Cunningham, respectively) became instant Broadway favorites too.
The musical’s score includes the signature introduction number of “Hello”, where the Mormons greet the audience. Then's the outrageous and infectious “Hasa Diga Eebowai,” the show-stopping “Spooky Mormon Hell Dream,” the smooth vibes of “Baptize Me,” and the comedy anthem “I Believe". The Book of Mormon choreography is by Casey Nicholaw.
Warning: The Book of Mormon contains offensive language and adult themes that may be unsuitable for younger theatregoers.
The Book of Mormon tickets are on sale soon.
