About the Event
The Book of Mormon tells the story of two young missionaries Elder Price and Elder Cunningham, sent to Uganda on a mission to convert everyone to the Mormon religion.
Elder price is extremely motivated and enthusiastic missionary with a strong belief in his faith, while Elder Cunningham is quite socially awkward person, who tends to make things seems nicer than they actually are. Once the young men arrive in Africa, they are greeted by a society that is plagued by Aids, poverty, violence…The missionaries come to an understanding that their mission might prove to be a lot more complicated than expected.
Composed by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, creators of South Park together with Avenue Q creator Robert Lopez, The Book of Mormon is a classical Broadway Musical filled with modern sensibility. The show is a blockbuster, filled with big song-and-dance numbers while at the same time poking fun at religion, sexuality, poverty and race. Enjoy this fun, brilliantly written show that will inspire a discussion around religion between you and your friends. After all, The New York Times has said that The Book of Mormon is ’’the best musical of this century’’. While Entertainment Weekly has called it ’’the funniest musical of all time’’. Now it is your turn to see this nine-time Tony Award Winning Best Musical on the Broadway stage!
