It's rare for a show to cause such a stir. But when this production hit the Broadway stage in 2010 a flock of often-hard-to-please reviewers gave it an immediate and enthusiastic thumbs-up. It's rude, irreverent and definitely NOT for the easily offended. Introducing The Book of Mormon, which has made the long-rumoured transfer to London's West End at last!

If you thoroughly enjoy being frightened, you’ll love this super-scary show, an exercise in pure gothic creepiness that’ll see you hanging onto the edge of your seat and jumping at the slightest sound. The fact that it has been released as a film, starring Harry Potter’s Daniel Radcliffe, is testament to its uncanny appeal.
