Now in its second year on Broadway, The Book of Mormon, which has been written by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone and Tony Award winner Robert Lopez., follows a pair of mismatched Mormon boys sent on a mission to a place that's about as far from Salt Lake City as you can get. The show won nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The production is co-directed by Parker and Casey Nicholaw, who also serves as the production's choreographer.
The production features set design by Scott Pask, costume design by Ann Roth, lighting design by Brian MacDevitt, sound design by Brian Ronan, and orchestrations by Larry Hochman and Stephen Oremus.
