The Book of Mormon has earned nine Tony awards, including
ones for Best Musical and Best Direction of a Musical, and the Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album. The play has also
received five Drama Desk Awards for Outstanding Musical, Lyrics, Music, Director of a Musical and Outstanding Orchestrations.
The original Broadway cast recording of the show became the highest-charting Broadway cast album in over four decades. In
2013, the show won the Evening Standard Award in the Best Night Out category.
The show is a religious
satire musical that makes fun of traditional musical theatre, in addition to sexuality, poverty, race, and organized religion—Mormonism
in particular. This blockbuster show was written by South Park creators Trey Parker, Matt Stone, and Avenue Q's Robert Lopez.
The play centers on two young missionaries, Elder Price and Elder Cunningham, who travel to northern Uganda with the goal
of converting its citizens to the Mormon religion. Their crusade comes to a screeching halt, however, because the evil warlord
eventually threatens the local population, which forces the people to worry about bigger things than religion, such as war,
famine, poverty, and AIDS. The production went through nearly seven years of development before it finally opened on Broadway
in March 2011.
Prior to creating The Book of Mormon, writers Trey Parker and Matt Stone hadworked together on the 1993
musical film Cannibal! The Musicalandthe 1997 hit TV showSouth Park for Comedy Central. Their 1998 film, Orgazmo, and the
2003 episode "All About Mormons" of South Park both lampooned the Mormon religion.
A UK production of The Book of Mormonmade
its debut in the West End in February 2013 at the Prince of Wales Theatre. The London cast members hosted a gala performance
of the new musical in March 2013 as a fundraiser for Red Nose Day. Ticket sales from that night's show—attended by several
high-profile Comic Relief supporters—were donated to Red Nose Day.
A cast recording of the original Broadway production
was issued in May 2011 through Ghostlight Records. In the first week of its release on iTunes, the album shot to number 2,
becoming the highest-selling Broadway cast recording in iTunes history. The recording received generally upbeat reviews, and
eventually becamethe highest-charting Broadway cast album in more than 40 years.
