The Book of Mormon celebrates 1000 performances down under!

Posted on: 30/9/2019 6:00PM

The Book of Mormon, Broadway’s smash hit musical has celebrated a milestone, its 1000th performance in Australia on Friday 27 September at the Crown Theatre, Perth. Since opening at Melbourne’s Princess Theatre in January 2017, the Tony®, Olivier®, Grammy® and Helpmann® award-winning show has broken box office records throughout its incredible tour across the country. 


Following the one year run at the Princess Theatre in Melbourne, The Book of Mormon transferred to the Sydney Lyric Theatre in February 2018 where it played for a further year. Then followed a three-month sold out Brisbane season, a record-breaking season at the Festival Theatre, Adelaide, and the show is now playing at Crown Theatre, Perth until 17 November. The Book of Mormon will return to Brisbane from 3 January 2020 for six weeks only, before moving to the Civic Theatre, Auckland for a limited season from 6 March 2020. 


Winner of nine Tony Awards® including Best Musical, the Grammy® for Best Musical Theatre album and four Olivier Awards® including Best New Musical, The Book of Mormon set a record for the highest grossing on-sale of any musical theatre production in Sydney’s history with more than 45,000 tickets sold by the end of the first day of public sales, and is the highest grossing musical in the Princess Theatre’s 159-year history in Melbourne.
