Hundreds queue to see The Book of Mormon

27th February 2013

The Book of Mormon, the musical from the makers of South Park Matt Stone and Trey Parker, has proven so popular that hundreds of people lined the streets of London to see its first performance on the West End.

Taking place at the Prince of Wales Theatre on Monday (February 25th ), the premiere of the show that took Broadway by storm was watched by many eager punters.

Parker said before the performance that he was unsure any show could live up to the fact that people have queued over night for tickets.

As it was, the show was extremely well received, but this shouldn't be a surprise given the fact that it managed to scoop nine Tony awards last year.

It recouped the $11.4 million (£7.3 million) investment in just nine months, in part due to the fact that tickets in the US cost up to $477 a night.

However, the buzz that was created by Parker and Stone's work has meant that the West End show is sold out until the end of July, despite the fact that it only premiered this week.

There are a small number of daily tickets available via a lottery system for those lucky enough.

The story follows two missionaries who are sent from Salt Lake City to preach in a remote Ugandan Village, where a brutal warlord is threatening the local population.

Parker told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: "We never sit down and say how we can shock. It is unconventional material for a musical. That's the sort of stuff that we love.

"It's about two white Mormon boys who grew up in Utah and are sent to a place with Old Testament problems - and nothing they've been taught helps them at all with these problems."

With tickets sold out until July and the play staying on the West End until September, people wanting to attend would be advised to book luxury accommodation in London as soon as possible.
