The winner of "BEST MUSICAL" plus eight other Tony Awards, “The Book of Mormon” portrays two missionaries who are sent to Uganda to spread their faith. One has a crisis of faith, and the other mixes the liturgy with bits of pop culture to win over converts. Written by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, of the four-time Emmy Award-winning animated series "South Park," as well as Tony Award-winning composer Robert Lopez, of the musical-comedy "Avenue Q.”  The book of Mormon was sold out when it first appeared on Broadway.

“The Book of Mormon” runs Nov. 21-26 at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, 701 Okeechobee Blvd., in West Palm Beach. Showtimes are 8 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday; 7:30 p.m. Sunday; with 2 p.m. matinees Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday. Tickets cost $35-$95. To order, call 561-832-7469 or go to Kravis.org.
