The Book of Mormon musical will be in Spokane Aug. 12-17.
Called “the best musical of this century” by The New York Times, the show tells the story of two optimistic and naive young Mormon missionaries sent to a remote village in northern Uganda, where a brutal warlord is threatening the local population.
The satirical performance has received mostly positive reviews since it first debuted in 2011.
The Spokane shows will be at the INB Performing Arts Center. Ticket prices range depending on seating, and can be purchased online.
