World’s collide in The Book of Mormon, the Broadway sensation from South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone. It’s coming to West Palm for the Kravis Center’s celebrated Kravis on Broadway series
The Book of Mormon
Production History: The Book of Mormon comes from the hilariously twisted minds of Trey Parker and Matt Stone, co-creators of the infamous cartoon series South Park. Together with Robert Lopez (of Avenue Q and Frozen fame), Parker and Stone wrote this satire of the Mormon faith, which arrived on Broadway in March 2011 and earned a slew of Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Original Score.
Synopsis: Two young Mormons, Elder Price and Elder Cunningham, go on a missionary trip to Uganda. Their naïve assumptions are quickly shattered when they come face-to-face with the country’s turmoil. The missionaries meet village chief Mafala Hatimbi and his daughter, Nabulungi, and continue in their efforts to spread the gospel of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Notable Songs: “Hasa Diga Eebowai” (a satire of The Lion King’s “Hakuna Matata”), “Turn It Off”
Why You Should See It: The Book of Mormon has been the talk of Broadway for years, and you’ll want in on that conversation.
