Written by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone and Avenue Q co-creator Robert Lopez, The Book of Mormon follows two young Mormon missionaries sent to Uganada, who soon discover their training did not quite prepare them for the world outside of Salt Lake City. The Broadway production opened in March 2011 and went on to win nine Tonys, including Best Musical. The original Broadway cast recording took home a Grammy Award in 2012 for Best Musical Theater Album.
The cast of the national tour features Mark Evans as Elder Price, Christopher John O'Neill as Elder Cunningham, Samantha Marie Ware as Nabulungi, Grey Henson as Elder McKinley and Stanley Wayne Mathis as Mafala Hatimbi.
The Tony-winning musical, directed by Parker and Casey Nicholaw, will open on February 25 at the Hippodrome Theatre and run through March 9.
