One of the West End’s favourite musicals since it opened six years ago, bringing its unique sense of satirical humour to the musical scene. Trey Parker and Matt Stone are best-known as the creators of South Park, the long-running US adult cartoon series, but turned their attention to musicals after seeing Avenue Q. With its writer Robert Lopez, they wrote The Book of Mormon, a hysterical account of two Mormon missionaries who head to a Ugandan village. It’s the kind of show that constantly ticks over at the Prince of Wales Theatre, constantly selling well without much media activity, but it’s one of the theatre success stories of the decade.
