Book of Mormon to open in Melbourne
Monday, 27 April 2015 14:11
The Book of Mormon – the musical written by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone and Avenue Q co-creator Robert Lopez – is coming to Australia.

The Tony®, Olivier®, and Grammy® award-winning show will begin performances at Melbourne’s Princess Theatre from January 2017. 

Parker, Stone and Lopez are excited to be bringing the show to Australia and they look forward to opening in Melbourne. Trey Parker said: "We can't wait to get started. Everyone says we should look to Tassie for casting so that's where we're going first."

Winner of nine Tony Awards® including Best Musical and the Grammy® for Best Musical Theatre album, The Book of Mormon follows a pair of Mormon boys sent on a mission to Uganda.

The Book of Mormon made its world premiere in March 2011 at Broadway’s Eugene O'Neil Theatre, while the London production opened in February 2013 at the Prince of Wales Theatre, winning four Olivier Awards®, including Best New Musical.

The show has set house records at 27 theaters around the US, and broken the house record at New York’s Eugene O’Neill Theater more than 50 times. The London production broke box office records for the highest single day of sales in West End history.

"Melbourne is one of the arts and culture capitals of the world. We're proud to host the premiere Australian season of this international musical phenomenon here in Melbourne," said the Premier of Victoria, Daniel Andrews.
 
The Book of Mormon is produced in Australia by Anne Garefino, Scott Rudin, Important Musicals and John Frost.
