The Book of Mormon, winner of nine Tony Awards including Best Musical, is currently playing a limited run through to September 14th at the Forrest Theatre in Philadelphia as part of the Broadway Philadelphia season.
Is this type of ‘ticket allocation’ something that could come to London and would people want to see it? Or is it just another gimmick to promote the show?
The Book of Mormon is the story of two young Mormon missionaries sent to a remote village in Uganda, where a brutal warlord is threatening the locals. Somewhat naive the two missionaries try to share the Book of Mormon, one of their scripture, which only one of them has read. They have problems communicating with the locals, who have more imminent concerns such as war, famine, poverty, and AIDS than about religion
