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.Following the success of the model on Broadway, the show is releasing daily lottery tickets, which must be applied for in person at the box office two and a half hours prior to every performance.Preview tickets have been selling out and guests so far spotted in the stalls include the Prime Minister, who attended on Friday (15 March). Last Wednesday The Book of Mormon hosted a special Red Nose Day gala, attended by comedians including Jack Dee, James Corden, Michael McIntyre, Tim Minchin, Simon Pegg and Rob Brydon (see photos here).
