Book of Mormon

Rehearsals have begun for the London production of The Book of Mormon, which previews at the Prince of Wales Theatre from 25 February 2013 – that’s next week!

From South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, and Avenue Q co-creator Robert Lopez, The Book of Mormon, winner of nine Tony Awards including Best Musical and the Grammy for Best Musical Theatre album, follows a pair of Mormon boys sent on a mission to a place that’s a long way from Salt Lake City…

AYT is delighted to be able to share some interviews with Matt Stone and Trey Parker  discussing how the musical came to be, as well as interviews with the original Broadway cast, designers, composer and choreographer.

The first video, featuring Matt Stone, Trey Parker and Robert Lopez talking about the genesis of the musical, is available below or A Younger Theatre’s YouTube. The second, continuing the discussion about the musical’s subject matter, is here.
