The Book of Mormon, hottest show on Broadway will be coming to Fort Lauderdale, Florida for the 2013-2014 season. Performance dates are yet to be announced.
Book Of Mormon, the winner of nine Tony Awards in 2011 — including Best Musical, Best Original Score and Best Book of a Musical — will play at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts as part of a national tour. The twisted religious satire has music, book and lyrics by “South Park” creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, working with Robert Lopez (who co-wrote the book for “Avenue Q” and has a hot new development deal with ABC).
The musical tells the story of two extremely naive Mormon missionaries sent to Uganda, where they face a warlord and indifference from the locals, who have their hands full dealing with hunger, genocide, poverty and AIDS.
The touring cast stars Gavin Creel (“Hair,” “Thoroughly Modern Millie”) as Elder Price and Jared Gertner (“The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee”) as Elder Cunningham.
