The Book of Mormon is going to be coming to Dublin
It's official, guys.
The Tony Award-winning musical The Book of Mormon is going to be coming to Dublin.
The news was confirmed via the musical's social media channels earlier this week, as they shared a photo of an advertisement for the show at St. Stephen's Green.

"#TheMormonsAreComing TO #Dublin," they captioned the post. "OH COOL, the home of Guinness and Leprechauns! Good things come to those who wait-list."
So, there's no exact date for when the musical is going to be arriving just yet. However, since the show is touring the UK through 2020, it's looking likely that any Dublin shows will be taking place in 2021.

The Book of Mormon follows two young missionaries - Elder Price, an enthusiastic go-getter with a strong dedication to his faith; and the socially-awkward but well-meaning Elder Cunningham, whose tendency to embroider the truth soon lands him in trouble - who get sent to a remote village in Uganda to spread the word of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Upon their arrival in Africa, Elders Price and Cunningham find that a successful mission may not be as easy as they expected - as the villagers are more concerned about the various pressing issues that they face, including AIDS, poverty and violence.
The musical's arrival in Dublin comes almost a decade after it first debuted on Broadway. Following its success in the United States, it debuted in the West End in 2013.
