Book of Mormon cleans up at the Oliviers

If you’re into musicals, comedy or drama then you’ll find no better city in the world than London, with the capital’s famous West End being known for its incredible array of stage shows.

Among those currently playing in Theatreland is the sensational comedic musical The Book of Mormon, which has received rave reviews and a string of awards ever since it opened in London.

If you still need convincing that the show is worth seeing then you may be interested to hear that it has just picked up four gongs at the 2014 Olivier Awards, which took place last night (April 13th) at the Royal Opera House.

Among the accolades won by the incredibly popular play were Best New Musical and Best Actor in a Musical, with leading man Gavin Creel being recognised for his fantastic performances.

Created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone – best known as the inventors of the controversial yet highly popular cartoon South Park – The Book of Mormon is one of the most unique and original musicals ever to hit the West End, and is currently playing at the Prince of Wales Theatre, which is located just a stone’s throw from Piccadilly Circus tube station and several of London’s top boutique hotels.

The Duke of York’s Theatre, meanwhile, can be found by Leicester Square tube station, and is currently playing host to another of the big winners at last night’s Olivier Awards, Jeeves and Wooster: Perfect Nonsense.

Starring Robert Webb – who some viewers may recognise from popular TV comedy Peep Show – and Mark Heap, the production is another excellent choice for those who are looking for a laugh while they’re in the capital, and picked up the prestigious Best New Comedy gong at the awards ceremony.
