The show 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.

Guests at the first night party, which was held at the Natural History Museum, included Rufus Sewell, Jimmy Carr, Frances Ruffelle, and Eliza Doolittle.
