The Book of Mormon to Open at the Prince of Wales next year

According to Baz in today’s Mail executives from New York are in discussions to open The Book of Mormon at the Prince of Wales Theatre in London’s West End early next year. Mamma Mia! is due to run there until 1st September and transfers to the Novello a week later.  There will be a limited run of another show at the Prince of Wales before the Mormons arrive.

The Broadway hit show has been mooted as moving to London for some time.  The book has been created by South Park maestros Trey Parker and Matt Stone with Robert Lopez (Avenue Q).

It is a comedy musical about two disciples of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints who are shipped off to northern Uganda to convert the locals.
