'The Book Of Mormon' is coming to Dublin

THE BOOK of Mormon is coming to Dublin nearly a decade since it debuted to acclaim and controversy on Broadway.

When Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s musical satire of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints first debuted back in 2011, few could have predicted what would come next.

Never ones to shy away from controversy, the show’s creators had previously dabbled with original songs to comedic effect on both South Park and Team America: World Police.

A huge hit with critics and audiences alike, the show went on to win nine Tony Awards in 2011, including best musical.

In 2013, The Book Of Mormon made its way to London's West End where it was met with yet more rave reviews and wall-to-wall sell out shows.

Now the production is set to head across the Irish sea, with a production being planned for Dublin, nine years after the Broadway debut.

The plans were announced on Facebook with a picture of a poster promoting The Book Of Mormon in front of a passing Luas at St. Stephen's Green.

Irish fans have a little longer to wait though.

The musical will be touring the UK throughout 2020, with shows planned for cities like Birmingham, Cardiff, and Edinburgh.

Any Dublin shows are likely to take place in 2021.
