Book Of Mormon musical tour will make its way to Cleveland Ohio for a three-week engagement as the centerpiece of the 2012-2013 season, the performing arts center announced Tuesday. The musical-comedy “The Book of Mormon” will play at Palace Theatre from June 18 through July 7, 2013.
“The Book of Mormon is the hottest show on Broadway. It’s sold out weeks in advance,” said Gina Vernaci, senior vice president of theater operations at PlayhouseSquare. “I think it is one of the funniest shows I’ve ever seen.”
Nine 2011 Tony Awards® say it’s the Best Musical of the Year. Vogue says, “It’s the funniest musical of all time.” And The New York Times says, “It’s the best musical of this century.” It’s The Book of Mormon, the Broadway phenomenon from South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone and Avenue Q co-creator Robert Lopez. The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart calls it “A crowning achievement. So good, it makes me angry.”
