Excerpts of Is The Book of Mormon Aiming to Convert London Audiences? by Adam Hetrick , Playbill
Producer Sonia Friedman is hoping to bring the Tony Award-nominated Broadway hit The Book of Mormon to London next year, according to the Times of London.
The musical centers on a mismatched pair of Mormon missionaries who venture from Salt Lake City to AIDS-ravaged Uganda in the hopes of converting villagers with the story of Joseph Smith and the founding of the Mormon Church. The problem is: Only one of them has actually read the book.
