Extensions for Book Of Mormon and Curious Incident
It’s time yet again for some of the capital’s shows to announce their latest booking extensions, giving audiences more dates to choose from and demonstrating their longevity in the West End.
This time around it is The Book of Mormon and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time that add new dates, with the former extending to September 2016 and Curious Incident going even further to February 2017. Both are acclaimed productions that opened in the West End in relatively recent years.
The Book Of Mormon opened at the Prince of Wales Theatre in March 2013 and proved to be a huge success, following up previous fortunes on Broadway. Like its American counterpart it has earned numerous awards and has been well-received by audiences and critics alike.
Penned by South Park’s Trey Parker & Matt Stone and Avenue Q’s Robert Lopez, it tells the story of Mormon missionaries in Uganda who try to spread the word of the Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The locals, however, have bigger things to worry about. As well its story, it has numerous musical numbers as well, which include All American Prophet, Map Up, Making Things Up Again and I Am Africa, amongst others.
The production continues at the Prince of Wales Theatre and thanks to the latest booking extension is now on sale to Saturday 17th September 2016.
Meanwhile, The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time has been seen at various locations in London, beginning at the National Theatre and continuing to the Apollo Theatre, where the well-documented ceiling collapse led to its transfer to its current home of the Gielgud Theatre.
Based on the Mark Haddon book, it follows the character of Christopher, a teenager with learning difficulties who attempts to solve the mystery of his neighbour’s dead dog, clearing his own name in the process. The acclaimed production has earned many fans and, like Book Of Mormon, has received many awards.
It remains at the Gielgud Theatre and is now booking for performances up to Saturday 18th February 2017.
