The Book of Mormon Philadelphia Tickets

The Book of Mormon Philadelphia Tickets

Schedule

The winner 9 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, The Book of Mormon has more than its foot in the door to capturing the attention of audiences! The Broadway production that premiered at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre on March 24, 2011, is now equipped with two national tours to share The Book of Mormon. The audiences of Philadelphia may enjoy this religious satire during this city-to-city mission lampooning the traditions of religion and musical theater. The Philadelphia Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts invites audiences to catch a showing of The Book of Mormon in the Forrest Theater starting Tuesday, July 29 and ending on Sunday, September 14. The Kimmel Center offers both matinee and evening showings: Tuesday-Thursday, 7:30 PM; Friday, 8:00 PM; Saturday, 2:00 PM and 8:00 PM; Sunday, 1:00 PM and 6:30 PM. For parents considering taking the entire family, please note that the Kimmel does indicate that the show contains explicit language and is not considered appropriate for children.


Plot

Outfitted in white shirts and black ties, equipped with the Book of Mormon and a belief to do good, two proselytizers, Elder Price and Elder Cunningham, travel to the East African country of Uganda. Representing a cultural extreme of western religion, the two Elders experience its contrasting cultural counterparts in the war-torn and poverty-stricken African state. The witty masterminds behind the popular and Emmy Award-winning, South Park, have created this brilliantly subversive story. After satirizing myriad human conventions and beliefs and likely offending its audience, the story discovers redemption in both faith and the laughter of its audiences.


Trivia

The diehard South Park fans in the audience might get a chuckle recalling the "Crème Fraiche" episode in which its creators, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, lampoon the popularity of cooking shows on the Food Network. On June 1, 2012, the Kimmel Center of Performing Arts welcomed the winner of the 2010 Food Network's The Next Iron Chef. Audiences may now enjoy the catering and concessions of Garces Catering across the Kimmel Center campus.

Coincidentally, Parker and Stone met on the University of Colorado campus, where the two collaborated for the first time while making an animated short entitled, "The Spirit of Christmas." From that partnership forward, the pair has proceeded to win numerous awards for their shared creative genius.


Cast

The first national tour is entertaining audiences across the US with its impressive cast of debuts. The motley Mormon twosome are amusing audiences with Mark Evans as Elder Price and Christopher John O'Neill, as Elder Cunningham. Evans theatre credits include West End performances of Wicked and Ghost the Musical and the UK national tours Rocky Horror Show and Oklahoma. Joining Evans on stage is O'Neill, who is making is professional debut on tour. Samantha Marie Ware, who plays Ugandan convert Nabulungi a convert, debuted in the Las Vegas performance of Disney's the Lion King. In his debut, Grey Henson is Elder McKinley, secretly gay Mormon elder who is the Church's leader in Uganda. Performing as Mafala Hatimbi, a tribe leader and tour guide, Stanley Wayne Mathis shares his experience on and off Broadway. His 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). Ron Bohmer exemplifies versatility as the Missionary Training Center Voice, Price's Dad, Joseph Smith and Mission President. His Broadway and tour credits include Ragtime, The Scarlet Pimpernel, The Woman in White, Phantom of the Opera, Sunset Boulevard and Aspects of Love. Derrick Williams performs the role of the General, a seemingly brutal despot of the Ugandan village where the Mormon missionaries see to share their truths. Williams previously shared the Lion King stage with his fellow actor, Ware. His Broadway and national tour credits include Wicked, Aida, Swing and Smokey Joe's Café.

It was recently announced that there is a second national tour of The Book of Mormon with Nic Rouleau, as Elder Price and A.J. Holmes, Elder Cunningham. Rouleau is neither new to Broadway nor a National Tour, having a CV that includes: Legally Blonde, Toy Story: The Musical. His stage partner in conversion, Jamison, has previously toured nationally in Young Frankenstein. Syesha Mercado, known to many as the 2nd runner up on the 7th season of American Idol on Fox, plays Nabulungi. Mercado previously toured both nationally and internationally in Dreamgirls and debuted in the feature film Dreams. In his first national tour debut, Pierce Cassedy performs the role of Elder McKinley, while James Vince Meredith, known for his roles in Superior Donuts and many other stage productions off Broadway and across the nation, is Mafala Hatimbi. From the cast of Mamma Mia! to the 2nd national tour, Christopher Shyer demonstrates his adaptability as the Missionary Training Center Voice, Price's Dad, Joseph Smith and Mission President. Seasoned actor David Aron Damane plays the General. Damane has a long career on Broadway, having performed in Don't Dress For Dinner, Big River, The Life and Riverdance.

Both tour groups are joined by an esteemed ensemble casts. The production's national touring casts have received accolades from audiences near and far from its award-winning current run on Broadway, thanks to the casting of Carrie Gardner.
