The Book of Mormon Columbus Tickets

The Book of Mormon Columbus Ticket

Schedule

The Book of Mormon has created legions of followers or fans with its audiences opening the door for their friends and family. The Book of Mormon offers an unique opportunity for audiences to test their faith in musical theatre or to watch it be born again. The musical has received numerous accolades that are a testament to its genius. It is the recipient of multiple Tony Awards, including Best Musical. On March 24, 2011 at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre, The Book of Mormon premiered. It presently has more than one national tour group. Each one is almost effortlessly keeping their foot in the door as each performance captures the hearts and minds of its audience. Now is the time for Columbus audiences to enjoy the critically acclaimed satire on its city-to-city tour. It will surely bring laughter to all those who attend, as it lampoons aspects of both musical theater and religion. The Ohio Theater invites audiences to see The Book of Mormon. The show opens on May 13, 2014 and closes May 25, 2014. The schedule includes both matinee and evening showings: First Week: Tuesday at 7:30PM, Wednesday at 7:30 PM, Friday at 8:00 PM, Saturday at 2:00 PM and 8:00 PM and Sunday at 1:00 PM and 6:30 PM; Second Week: Tuesday-Thursday at 7:30 PM, Friday at 8:00 PM; Saturday at 2:00 PM and 8:00 PM and Sunday at 1:00 PM and 6:30 PM.


Plot

The story begins with two Mormon Elders, Price and Cunningham Elder suited in what is now the proverbial white shirts and black ties, and equipped with the Book of Mormon. The two surprisingly odd coupled proselytizers head out on a mission to save Uganda. The two Elders, in a way representing a cultural extreme of western religion and an innocently naïve approach, come up against an unexpected contrasting cultural counterpart in the foreign East African country, previously ravaged by war and a developing economy.

The Book of Mormon, seems to be exactly what one would expect from the two witty talents who brought audiences the popular and Emmy Award-winning, South Park. The two geniuses have carefully crafted this subversive and brilliant story. Following a production of The Book of Mormon, audiences will discover that it is indeed possible to laugh at themselves and beliefs (and even disbelief). While the musical lightly mocks an array of human conventions (and in many respects the human condition) and will likely offend some of its audience, the plot skillfully leads the audience and the musical to redemption of one's faith through laughter.


Trivia

Trey Parker and Matt Stone, who are the writers of South Park and The Book of Mormon, met at the University of Colorado. What many do not know is that the first time the twosome collaborated was to create the animated short entitled, "The Spirit of Christmas." Moving forward from there, the two have since received multiple awards and accolades for their creative brilliance.


Cast

The first national tour is packed full of cast debuts. The main Elders who are entertaining audiences across North America are Mark Evans as Elder Price and Christopher John O'Neill as Elder Cunningham. Evans is not new to the stage, as he is credited for West End performances, such as Wicked and Ghost the Musical and the UK national tours Rocky Horror Show and Oklahoma. Joining Evans on the tour is O'Neill, who is excited to make his professional debut. Samantha Marie Ware, who plays the Ugandan convert by the name of Nabulungi. She recently had her debut in the Las Vegas performance of Disney's the Lion King and is now on her way with the present tour. The debut performances do not end there, as Grey Henson as Elder McKinley is just now coming out. Henson performs as the secretly gay Mormon elder, who is also the Church's leader in Uganda. Portraying the tribe leader and tour guide, Mafala Hatimbi, Stanley Wayne Mathis has an array of On- and Off- Broadway experiences. Some of his previous performances include: Nice Work If You Can Get It, Wonderful Town, Kiss Me Kate, You're A Good Man Charlie Brown, The Lion King, Jelly's Last Jam, Oh Kay!, ResurGents (OB) and Real Black Men Don't (OB). The cast welcome, Ron Bohmer, who demonstrates his versatility to play many roles: Missionary Training Center Voice, Price's Dad, Joseph Smith and Mission President. Bohmer's Broadway and tour credits include: Ragtime, The Scarlet Pimpernel, The Woman in White, Phantom of the Opera, Sunset Boulevard and Aspects of Love. Lastly, Derrick Williams plays the role of the General, who is depicted as a brutal despot of the Ugandan village. Interestingly, Williams and Ware share the experience of having both been on the Lion King stage prior performing together in the present production. Williams is credited for the Broadway and national tours of Wicked, Aida, Swing and Smokey Joe's Café.

Thanks to Carrie Gardner, who served as Casting Director, the production's national touring casts have received multiple praises.


Producers

The cheeky creative team who created the book, music and lyrics of The Book of Mormon consists of Trey Parker, Matt Stone and Robert Lopez. Stone and Parker are known for the award winning animated series South Park, as well as their collaborations on Cannibal! The Musical, Orgazmo, Team America: World Police, and South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut. Joining Parker and Stone on this collaboration is Lopez, the award-winning co-creator of Avenue Q. Lopez was acknowledged for his musical prowess when he received awards for the music he created for The Wonder Pets and a musical episode of Scrubs. Trey Parker along with the Choreographer Casey Nicholaw co-directed The Book of Mormon. The creative team includes: Stephen Oremus (Music Direction and Vocal Arrangements), Scott Pask (Scenic Design), Ann Roth (Costume Design), Brian MacDevitt (Lighting), Brian Ronan (Sound Design), Josh Marquette (Hair Design), Larry Hochman and Mr. Oremus (Orchestrations), Glen Kelly (Dance Arrangements) and Michael Keller (Music Coordinator).

The Book of Mormon is an immaculate production that is predetermined to restore one's faith and crack open more than a door… it will likely get more than a smile.
