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!

Tony and Greg seem to have love all figured out. They’re in a committed relationship but with room for a little more on the side whenever it takes their fancy. The only rule? Never sleep with the same man twice.
