Labeled by the New York Times as “the best musical of this century,” The Book of Mormon will be performed eight times at the Tennessee Theatre for six nights in July. An odd couple of Mormon missionaries travel around the world in this musical comedy. The nine-time Tony Award-winning musical was written by Trey Parker, Matt Stone, and Robert Lopez—Parker and Stone also created South Park. Tickets for the performances are available through tennesseetheatre.com with prices starting at $44.
The play premiered in 2011 at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre in New York City.
