Production images have been released for the West End transfer of The Book of Mormon, which premiered at the Prince of Wales Theatre last night (21 March 2013, previews from 25 February).

The Book of Mormon comes from South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, and Avenue Q co-creator Robert Lopez. The show, which won nine Tony Awards including Best Musical, follows a pair of Mormon boys sent on a mission to a place that's a long way from Salt Lake City.

Directed by Casey Nicholaw and Trey Parker, The Book of Mormon stars Gavin Creel and Jared Gertner (pictured) as Elder Price and Elder Cunningham, alongside Alexia Khadime, Giles Terera, Chris Jarman and Stephen Ashfield.
