After becoming Broadway's biggest success in years, The Book Of Mormon is now headed to London's West End.  Written by South Park's Matt Parker & Trey Stone alongside Avenue Q's Co-Writer & Composer Robert Lopez, Book Of Mormon is an outrageous musical based on two mismatched missionaries trying to save a local Ugandian tribe from a nearby Warlord and turn them to the Book of Mormon for Salvation.  With the South Park Boys and the co creator of Avenue Q, you know full well that this will not be a low key solemn affair.  Below is a video from a US based programme 60 minutes on the musical and at brief look at the careers of Parker & Stone.

Tickets went on public sale for the West End production of The Book of Mormon on 23 September 2012. Preview performances will begin at the Prince of Wales Theatre on 25 February 2013, with the official opening night on 21 March. Casting will be announced shortly.

The Book of Mormon will offer a limited number of top-price stalls tickets at £20 for each performance. These seats will be available through The Book of Mormon lottery. Entries to the lottery will be accepted in person at the Box Office two and a half hours prior to each performance. Names will be drawn at random two hours before each performance.

The Book of Mormon is produced in the West End by Anne Garefino, Scott Rudin, Important Musicals and Sonia Friedman Productions.
