From the creators of "South Park," a Tony Award-winning, bawdy, irreverent, and heartfelt musical comedy about two missionaries sent to deepest, darkest Africa to spread the good word. More…
"The Book of Mormon" tells the story of two young Mormon missionaries sent to a remote village in northern Uganda, where a brutal warlord is threatening the local population. Naïve and optimistic, the two missionaries try to share the Book of Mormon, but have trouble connecting with the locals, who are more worried about war, famine, poverty and AIDS than about religion. The show was awarded nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
