One of the most successful Broadway musicals of late comes into town this month. The Book of Mormon—which was written by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone and Avenue Q co-creator Robert Lopez—won nine Tony Awards and spawned the most popular Broadway soundtrack of the last four decades. All the fun comes to the the Hippodrome Theatre from February 25 through March 9.

“The show has a brilliant creative team,” says Jeff Daniel, president of the France-Merrick Performing Arts Center. “Audiences should expect to see a really big, traditional book musical that is witty and hilarious.” The show satirizes organized religion and traditional musical theater, with a particular emphasis on Mormonism.

Tickets ($90-150) are available through Ticketmaster and BroadwayAcrossAmerica.com, and Daniel advises buying early, with Tuesday through Thursday performances easiest to snag: “We are thrilled to watch this show entertain Baltimore for two weeks!”
