The Book of Mormon, one of Broadway’s toughest tickets to obtain in recent years, is coming to Winnipeg in 2015 for a one-week engagement at the Centennial Concert Hall, it was announced Monday.
The 2011 Tony Award-winner for best musical is a subversively funny, profane tale of naive Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints missionaries sent to Uganda penned by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, with music by Robert Lopez.
In announcing that The Book of Mormon will be presented at the concert hall March 17-22, 2015, Broadway Across America has assembled a three-play season to which it is offering a package deal, including the Winnipeg première of War Horse (June 18- 22, 2014) and the return of Wicked (Aug. 20-30, 2014). Package deals for the three shows are on sale at Broadway Across Canada or by phone at 1-877-783-4847 for $198 to $308.
Single tickets to The Book of Mormon will be available later this year.
