Since opening in the West End in 2013, The Book of Mormon has established itself as one of the funniest musicals to take over the West End. Gleefully skewering a truckload of sacred cows including organized religion, consumerism and the musical genre itself into a musical, don't miss this endearing, thoughtful and outrageously funny show.
Created by South Park's Matt Stone and Trey Parker, as well as Avenue Q writer Robert Lopez., the show frequently crosses the line with its sharp satire and on-the-nose humour with outrageous religious and social commentary. Don't miss this hilarious, heartwarming production in London.
Dom Simpson plays the role of Elder Price, reprising his performance from the Broadway production where he was the Standby Elder Price. Tom Xander plays Elder Cunningham.
The cast is completed by Leanne Robinson as Nabulungi, Steven Webb as Moroni and Elder McKinley, Richard Lloyd King as Mafala Hatimbi, Dean Maynard, Michael Moulton, Thomas Audibert, Philip Catchpole, Portia Harry, Olivia Hibbert, Jed Hoyle, M-Jae Cleopatra Isaac, Cal-I Jonel, Ryan Kopel, Jack McNeill, Paige Miller, Sean Parkins, Kirk Patterson, Luke Redmore, Stephen Rolley, Fred Smiley and Patrick Sullivan.
The Book of Mormon tells the story of two eager young Mormon missionaries, Elder Kevin Price and Elder Arnold Cunningham. Dispatched to a small town in Uganda to spread the word of the Latter Day Saints, they’re walloped by culture shock and end up in a showdown with a tyrannical warlord.
Forced to confront their own beliefs before they can win the day, not to mention facing off with famine, poverty and AIDS. It may not sound like the stuff of uproarious comedy, but in the hands of spectacularly snarky South Parkers, Stone and Parker, that’s exactly what The Book of Mormon is.
The Book of Mormon has a running time of 2 hours 30 minutes.

The Book of Mormon has an age restriction of under 15. All persons aged under 16 must be accompanied and sat next to the accompanying adult.
This is adult stuff, for liberal-minded audiences. But if you love South Park's near-the-knuckle comedy and / or gloriously life-affirming, painfully funny musicals stuffed to the gills with take-home-tunes, then The Book Of Mormon is absolutely essential.
If you're a parent and you're OK with your kids watching South Park, then use your own judgement about letting them see this.
Contains swearing, sexual content, offensive content.
The Book of Mormon won nine Tony Awards in 2011, including Best Musical. When the production transferred to the UK, the show won four Olivier Awards including best new musical, with Gavin Creel winning the award for best actor in a musical for his performance as Elder Price.
Matt Parker and Trey Stone attribute their interest in Mormonism to their upbringing. They both grew up in Northwest Colorado near the Utah border with a significant Mormon population.
Matt Parker and Trey Stone have worked on previous movies including 'BASEketball', 'Team America - World Police', 'Cannibal: The Musical and Orgazmo'.
The latter in particular is of interest to those with half an eye on The Book Of Mormon. Its protagonist Joe Young is a naive Mormon who's unwittingly roped into the adult movie business.
This 1997 movie is the most visible precursor to the current musical, but it's far from the only instance in Parker & Stone's canon involving the Church of the Latter Day Saints getting ribbed; South Park is full of them.
