The Book of Mormon follows two young missionaries sent to Uganda to convert the citizens to the Mormon religion. The pair pose an interesting dynamic—Elder Cunningham is nerdy and an irritating liar, while Elder Prince is a devout, pompous man.

Cunningham and Prince want to be sent to Orlando but end up in Africa, where they must battle violence, sickness and other obstacles. The musical follows them as they use their limited knowledge of Mormon doctrine to convert the Ugandans, and it’s full of satire and humor along the way.

The musical doesn’t pick sides either—it makes fun of all parties, resulting in an unforgettable, hilarious performance.

2. It sells out almost every show

Because The Book of Mormon has a knack for humor, it attracts audiences from all over and sells out fast. That means you’ll want to grab your tickets ASAP for next weekend’s shows.

The Book of Mormon hasn’t been in Huntsville in five years, so its May shows present an amazing opportunity to catch a glimpse of this Broadway masterpiece.

“This show is a blockbuster. It still sells out three weeks in Salt Lake City every year it goes there. Last time it was in Huntsville in 2018, it was a sellout performance for eight shows.”
