If you like humor from the popular four-time Emmy Award-winning animated adult cartoon series, “South Park,” you’ll be overjoyed with The Book of Mormon.
The Book of Mormon features the book, music and lyrics by Trey Parker, Matt Stone (creators of “South Park”) and Robert Lopez.
The trio has mimicked the landmark cartoon’s dry, vulgar, sarcastic comedy while depicting the real-life Mormon experiences on stage.
This opening musical is laugh-out-loud funny with an uncanny resemblance of true Mormon behavior.
Fast forward to the destination of the performance, Nikki M. James plays an optimistic young woman and love interest hoping to get ‘baptized” by one of the leading men. Find out what happens and how they find themselves into this funny predicament.
The Book of Mormon, which has played multiple sold-out engagements, returns to Detroit’s Fisher Theatre, December 4-9. 2018. Single tickets start at $39 and go on sale Sunday, September 16.

James), Best Scenic Design (Scott Pask), Best Lighting Design (Brian MacDevitt), Best Sound Design (Brian Ronan) and Best Orchestrations (Larry Hochman, Stephen Oremus); the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Musical; five Drama Desk Awards including Best Musical, the 2011 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album; four Outer Critics Circle Awards, including Best Musical, and the Drama League Award for Best Musical.
