Society of London Theatre hail 'brilliant show'

The president of the Society Of London Theatre congratulated the West End show The Book of Mormon for its record-breaking sales:

It is fantastic to have such a brilliant show reaching out to new audiences for the West End and ensuring that they have a great night of musical entertainment.

– Mark Rubinstein, Society Of London Theatre

The comedy, winner of nine Tony awards, is about a pair of young Mormon boys sent on a mission a long way from home.

Actors Kate Winslet and Damian Lewis were among the celebrities seen at the opening night last week. The show is now booking until January 2014.
