The Book of Mormon Debuts in London's West End
Date Posted: 26/02/13
The latest musical to wow those on London theatre breaks opened in the West End last night (February 25th) when The Book of Mormon made its debut appearance in the capital.
Created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the duo behind South Park, The Book of Mormon has already won numerous plaudits and awards during its run on Broadway in the US - including picking up nine Tony awards.
Last night's premiere was held at the Prince of Wales Theatre ahead of the musical's official opening on March 21st.
The performance was greeted with rapturous applause by the full house, reports the Press Association.
Introducing the show, Parker told the audience: "We're so excited to be here for the fan performance.
"We heard some of you lined up overnight and we just wanted to say, from the bottom of our hearts... you're f*****g crazy. We hope the show can live up to that."
