The Book of Mormon returns to Hollywood Pantages Theatre
Back by popular demand, THE BOOK OF MORMON, which played sold out runs in 2012, 2014, & 2017, returns to the Hollywood Pantages Theatre for a limited two-week engagement November 29 - December 11, 2022.
The Book of Mormon is a musical comedy that features music, lyrics and a book written by Trey Parker, Robert Lopez and Matt Stone. It is a humorous examination of the beliefs, practices, and values of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Stone and Parker are best-known for their animated comedy South Park. Lopez co-wrote the music for Avenue Q.
The Book of Mormon is the story of two Latter-day Saints missionaries who attempt to share the faith with the people of remote Ugandan villages. The locals are not interested in the missionaries' efforts and are distracted by other pressing issues like HIV/AIDS, female genital mutilation, oppression, and famine.
