News 08/16/12

The Book of Mormon, winner of nine Tony Awards, will play Atlanta as part of the 2013-2014 Broadway season. The musical from the creators of South Park and Avenue Q will play the Fox Theatre, with dates yet to be announced. The national tour of the blockbuster musical currently stars Gavin Creel and Jared Gertner and premiered in Denver on August 14.

Written by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone and Avenue Q co-creator Robert Lopez, The Book of Mormon follows two young Mormon missionaries sent to Uganada, who soon discover their training did not quite prepare them for the world outside of Salt Lake City. The Broadway production opened in March 2011 and went on to win nine Tonys, including Best Musical, Best Score, and Best Director. The original Broadway cast recording took home a Grammy Award in 2012 for Best Musical Theater Album.

The musical is directed by Parker and Casey Nicholaw, who also serves as choreographer. The Book of Mormon features set design by Scott Pask, costume design by Ann Roth, lighting design by Brian MacDevitt and sound design by Brian Ronan.
