Tempe events include the opening of THE BOOK OF MORMON at ASU Gammage on May 18, 2017. This outrageous musical comedy and winner of nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical,  follows the misadventures of a mismatched pair of missionaries, sent halfway across the world to a remote village in Africa to spread the Good Word.

The New York Times calls it “the best musical of the century.” the Washington Post says, “It is the kind of evening that restores your faith in musicals.” And Entertainment Weekly says, “Grade A: the funniest musical of all time.” Jimmy Fallon of “The Tonight Show” calls it “Genius. Brilliant. Phenomenal.”

The BOOK OF MORMON runs through May 28, 2017. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit http://www.asugammage.com/shows.
