Get ready for a real rollercoaster of laughter and world reflection; Nine-time Tony Award winner The Book of Mormon is coming LIVE to Adler Theatre on Friday, March 29, 2024, and you won't want to miss it! Finally, after two years, the musical will be traveling across the country to give fans from all over the world a chance to see precisely why it is so well-known and popular.
The Book of Mormon is a musical comedy that follows two missionaries in their attempt to preach to the residents of a small remote village in Uganda. The young men have a hard time as the residents seem to lack interest in them and would much rather focus on more pressing issues in their village. Enjoy the 19 original songs that will either have you crying from laughter or feeling emotional by the time it's over.
With its debut being over a decade ago in 2011, The Book of Mormon garnered a very positive response from viewers from its very first showing. The creators Trey Parker, Matt Stone, and Robert Lopez are well-known for having created the famous TV series South Park before it. The musical eventually became one of the world's most successful and grossed more than $750 million in sales. Today, it remains to be one of the most popular musicals in the world, hence the upcoming 2024 tour with more dates still to come.
Fans of the musical share that "there is no review, preview, or warning that can quite prepare you for the musical The Book of Mormon." and that "indeed 2 hours and 20 minutes later, you are almost guaranteed to be left singing along to the catchy soundtrack but also in a slight existential crisis about how politically correct you really are." Sounds like there's really nothing else like it!
