The Book of Mormon celebrates 1000 Aussie performances

The Broadway hit, The Book of Mormon, will this week celebrate the milestone of its 1000th performance in Australia on Friday 27 September at the Crown Theatre, Perth.

Written by Trey Parker, Matt Stone and Robert Lopez the hilarious musical has won nine Tony Awards® including Best Musical, the Grammy® for Best Musical Theatre album and four Olivier Awards® including Best New Musical. It’s now set records across Australia for ticket sales.

This musical comedy follows the misadventures of a mismatched pair of Mormon missionaries named Elder Price and Elder Cunningham who are sent on a mission to a place that’s about as far from Salt Lake City as you can get.

Blake Bowden (who plays Elder Price) and Nyk Bielak (who plays Elder Cunningham) joined Jo McManus LIVE in the studio to tell listeners why they need to see this show.
