Birmingham, get ready, the Mormons are coming…
The smash-hit musical, The Book of Mormon, has announced a huge UK tour, which includes a run in Birmingham. After huge success in both Broadway and the West End, playing to more than 17 million people worldwide, the Tony Award-winning show will be at Birmingham Hippodrome from March 4 – 28, 2020.
Created by the comedic masterminds behind South Park, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, and Bobby Lopez, co-writer of Avenue Q and Frozen, The Book of Mormon is a hilarious comedy musical that follows the misadventures of a mismatched pair of missionaries, sent on a mission to a place that’s about as far from Salt Lake City as you can get.
Since making its debut in March 2011 at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre on Broadway, the show has become the 14th longest-running production in Broadway, playing to more than a 100% capacity each week.
It then travelled across the pond, opening the West End’s Prince of Wales theatre, where it continues to hold the record for the longest run of sold-out shows recorded in London.
During its reign, it’s picked up multiple prestigious awards including four whatsonstage.com awards, four Olivier Awards, nine Tony Awards and a Grammy® for Best Musical Theatre Album.
Hailed by critics across the globe, you really won’t want to miss this incredible show when it heads to the city. Tickets are on sale from the Birmingham Hippodrome and box office. They are priced from £15. Click here to book yours now!
