The Book of Mormon is a Broadway musical that first premiered in March 2011. The story follows two Mormon missionaries who try to share their faith with a remote village in Uganda.


Book of Mormon is one of the most popular contemporary shows on Broadway. During its first few years, its day-of ticket lottery crowds were some of the biggest, and some fans camped out for hours in hopes of buying a standing room only ticket.[1]

The most popular ship in the fandom is Elder McKinley/Kevin Price.[2]
