"Book Of Mormon"
Comes to Boston Opera House
April 9 - 28

In one of the most highly anticipated engagements of the Boston theater season, "The Book of Mormon" is set to bring its comical irreverence to the Boston Opera House from April 9 - 28.

Winner of nine Tony Awards including Best Musical, "The Book of Mormon" tells the satirical musical tale of two young and naive Mormon missionaries who travel to a remote village in Uganda to share the scripture. The locals, however, are more concerned about famine, poverty and the local warlord than finding religion.

The show's book, music and lyrics are by Trey Parker, Robert Lopez and Matt Stone. Parker and Stone are the four-time Emmy Award-winning creators of the landmark animated series, “South Park.” Tony Award-winner Lopez is co-creator of the long-running hit musical comedy, "Avenue Q." The musical is choreographed by Tony Award-winner Casey Nicholaw (who includes "Monty Python’s Spamalot," "The Drowsy Chaperone" and the soon-to-play-Boston "Tuck Everlasting" among his many credits) and directed by Nicholaw and Parker.

Called "Heaven on earth" by Ben Brantley of The New York Times, "The Book of Mormon" took Broadway by storm in March of 2011. Among it's original cast members were Andrew Rannells (who delivered the musical's showstopping "I Believe" on the Tony Awards broadcast and now stars in NBC's "The New Normal" ) and Josh Gad (who co-created and now stars in NBC's "1600 Penn").

The original New York production walked away with most every honor on Broadway including nods from The New York Drama Critics Circle Awards, Drama Desk Awards, Outer Critics Circle Awards and Drama League Awards for Best Musical. In addition, the original cast recording was named Best Musical Theater Album at The Grammys.
