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.
The top four most common tags on A03 are (in descending order) fluff, angst, post-canon, and internalized homophobia.
- Post-Canon - Fics of what happens after the events of the musical are very common.
- Internalized homophobia fics commonly overlap with their identities as Mormons, in particular dealing with Elder McKinley's internalised homophobia as featured in his main song, Turn it off.
