The Book of Mormon recouped its initial capitalization during the week ending November 27, 2011. The show has broken the house record at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre 22 times, continually grossing more than $1 million a week since opening on March 24.
"We’re very gratified by the response to our show and look forward to welcoming theatergoers to the O’Neill for many years to come,” the producers said in a statement.
Featuring a score and book by Trey Parker, Matt Stone and Robert Lopez and co-directed by Parker and Casey Nicholaw, The Book of Mormon follows two young Mormon missionaries sent to Uganada, who soon discover their training did not quite prepare them for the world outside of Salt Lake City. The show earned nine 2011 Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
The Book of Mormon currently stars Andrew Rannells, Josh Gad, Nikki M. James (who earned a Tony for her performance), Rory O'Malley and Michael Potts. The cast also features Lewis Cleale, Brian Tyree Henry, Scott Barnhardt, Justin Bohon, Graham Bowen, Darlesia Cearcy, Kevin Duda, Jared Gertner, Asmeret Ghebremichael, Tyson Jennette, Clark Johnsen, Valisia LeKae, Douglas Lyons, John Eric Parker, Nic Rouleau, Benjamin Schrader, Michael James Scott, Brian Sears, Jason Michael Snow, Nick Spangler, Lawrence Stallings, Rema Webb, Maia Nkenge Wilson and Tommar Wilson.
