The Book of Mormon has won 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.
The show is a religious
satire musical that lampoons traditional musical theatre, as well as sexuality, poverty, race, and organized religion—Mormonism
in particular. This blockbuster show is composed by South Park creators Trey Parker, Matt Stone, and Avenue Q's Robert Lopez.
The play follows two young missionaries, Elder Price and Elder Cunningham, who travel to northern Uganda with the intention
of converting its citizens to the Mormon religion. Their crusade falls flat, however, because the evil warlord is threatening
the local population, forcing the people to worry about bigger things than religion, such as war, famine, poverty, and AIDS.
The show went through nearly seven years of development before it finally opened on Broadway in March 2011.
and Matt Stone were both raised in Colorado, and had long been familiar with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
(LDS Church) and its members. Before Parker met Stone, he already had a strong musical background—in high school, he
was president of Choir Counsel. He performed in community theater productions of Grease, Flower Drum Song, and The Best Little
Whorehouse in Texas. The two writers met at the University of Colorado at Boulder, where they worked together on the 1993
musical film Cannibal! The Musical. In 1997, they created the hit TV series South Park for Comedy Central. Their 1998 film,
Orgazmo, and the 2003 episode "All About Mormons" of South Park both parodied the Mormon religion.
In 2003, when Parker
and Stone were filming Team America: World Police, they attended the musical Avenue Q on Broadway. One of the show's performers,
Robert Lopez introduced himself to the duo when he saw them in the crowd. Lopez told them that their movie South Park: Bigger,
Longer & Uncut largely influenced the production of Avenue Q. The three men went out for drinks together soon afterwards,
and discovered that they all shared a habit of writing about the religious leader Joseph Smith in their creative projects.
UK production made its debut in the West End on February 25, 2013 at the Prince of Wales Theatre. The London cast members
hosted a gala performance of the new musical on March 13, 2013 as a fundraiser for Red Nose Day. Ticket sales from the evening's
performance—attended by several high-profile Comic Relief supporters—were donated to Red Nose Day.
the Chicago production came to a close on October 6, 2013, it was announced that the same production would tour across the
US. A.J. Holmes replaced Ben Platt in the role of Elder Cunningham.
