The Book Of Mormon Tickets
“Everything you should expect from a show by the heat-seeking rascals of “South Park.”” – Newsday
The musical depicts the narrative of two mismatched Mormon missionaries dispatched to Uganda to convert locals to the Mormon faith. When the missionaries arrive in Africa, they discover a population dealing with poverty, AIDS, and violence. And as grim as it sounds, this show will make you laugh out loud before you wipe away your tears. It’s smart, it’s witty, and it’s nostalgic.
With a Grammy Award-winning score of 19 original songs that range from obscene to sweet, The Book of Mormon is sure to win over ‘mostly’ everyone (although you might not want to bring your local pastor along to see it!).
