LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The "Book of Mormon" is the hottest ticket in town, as the show kicks off a two-week run at the Kentucky Center.
"The Book of Mormon" is the winner of nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Score. It features book, music and lyrics by Trey Parker, Robert Lopez and Matt Stone. Parker and Stone are the four-time Emmy Award-winning creators of the landmark animated series, "South Park." Tony Award-winner Lopez is co-creator of the long-running hit musical comedy, Avenue Q.
Alexandra Ncube plays Nabulungi in the show, and Christopher John O'Neill plays Elder Cunningham. The musical follows two young Mormons as they embark on a mission to Uganda. But the show is hardly religious, and it includes explicit language and an irreverent storyline punctuated with adult themes.
The Book of Mormon Presented by the PNC Broadway Series Through June 8, 2014 Kentucky Center Tickets start at $43.00 **Contains explicit language**
