On This Day...

A DAILY FACTOID OF OUR ART HISTORY

Mar. 24

From the creators of South Park, The Book of Mormon musical opened on Broadway on this day (2011). It is about two young missionaries who travel to Uganda to preach to a remote village. While the musical pokes fun at Mormon practices and beliefs, it ultimately praises its positivity and dedication to service. Initially opening in 2011, The Book of Mormon has grossed over $500 million, making it one of the most successful musicals of all time. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Book_of_Mormon_(musical)
