The Prince of Wales Theatre in London’s West End welcomes one of the most talked-about shows on Broadway from 2013 as “The Book of Mormon” from “South Park” creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, plus “Avenue Q” creator Robert Lopez, appears on its stage. The production has turned many heads on the other side of the Atlantic and its future success is already guaranteed.
Since the show first emerged a West End version has been inevitable. After all, with high profile talents working behind the scenes and numerous Tony Awards to its name, London theatre audiences were going to want to get a look-in.
“The Book of Mormon” follows two Mormon missionaries who head out to a village in Northern Uganda with the hope of teaching them the ways of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. But when they get there they are surprised by the differences in culture that are prevalent in the country, with religion the last thing on their minds. With AIDS and war at the forefront of their concerns, Mormonism will have to take a backseat.
Meanwhile there are plenty of songs that have also contributed to the show’s popularity, including “I Am Here for You”, “Spooky Mormon Hell Dream”, “All American Prophet” and “Making Things Up Again”, among others.
The original show opened at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre in March 2011 and since then has been in the spotlight regularly, whilst also making its way to further theatres in the United States as part of its national tour and as part of its run in Chicago. Now it runs at the Prince of Wales Theatre, the former home of “Mamma Mia!”, and welcomes audiences on these shores as well. It will undoubtedly appeal to anyone that is a fan of “South Park” and “Team America: World Police”, both creations of Parker and Stone, or “Avenue Q” from Robert Lopez.
So if you are looking for a stand-out West End show, then picking up theatre tickets for “The Book of Mormon” is a must as it begins its run at the Prince of Wales Theatre on Thursday 21st March 2013 (with previews starting on Monday 25th February 2013).
