The rumours were true, it's finally coming! Find out how to get presale tickets and more
The Book of Mormon is set to run at the Edinburgh Playhouse from Wed 17 Jun–Sat 4 Jul 2020 as part of its national UK tour. Presale tickets for all dates are available to ATG Theatre Card members now ahead of the general sale at 10am on Wed 13 Nov.
The musical comedy was created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone (South Park) and Bobby Lopez (Avenue Q) and features over 20 original songs, including famed hits 'Turn It Off', 'Hello' and 'I Believe' among others. Since premiering in 2011 the show has smashed box office records, bagged nine Tony Awards including Best Musical and took home a Grammy Award for Best Musical Theatre Album.
For these reasons and so many more, Scotland has been waiting for the production to call at the capital's 3,059 capacity venue following announced runs in Bristol, Birmingham, Cardiff and more.
The satirical musical tells the story of two Mormon missionaries who travel from Salt Lake City to share the teachings of their religion with a remote Ugandan community. The show has sold-out venues on Broadway, in London, across North America, Melbourne and Sydney and will no doubt do the same in Scotland.
The show runs at Edinburgh Playhouse as part of the theatre's 2020 programme, during which the venue hosts back-to-back smash-hit musicals like The Lion King, Heathers, Once, Footloose and more.
