Winner of nine Tony awards including Best Musical, Matt Stone and Trey Parker’s “The Book Of Mormon” will be showing at Popejoy Hall from now through April 15 for its second year at the University of New Mexico.
“Part of Popejoy’s mission is to bring diverse programming to our community,” said Tom Tkach, Director of Popejoy Hall. “We’re happy to welcome back ‘The Book of Mormon’ as yet another well-received success in the Broadway in New Mexico season.”
South Park creators Stone and Parker’s “The Book of Mormon,” tells the story of two missionaries who go to Uganda to convert individuals to Mormonism. They soon realize their mission may not go as planned, as they experience a society facing AIDS, poverty and violence, according to the Broadway synopsis.
Before each performance, anyone interested will have the opportunity to submit their name for a drawing. If selected, that individual will be able to attend the show at a lower cost than the standard price, according to a press release.
