Prince of Wales Theatre London
A remarkable West End Theatre sprawling presence over a century, Prince of Wales Theatre is one of the prominent landmarks of the Coventry Street, where it has been located since January 1884. It was actor-manager Edgar Bruce who got the venue designed by Charles J. Phipps, the man behind some of the greatest West End theatres. The house is at present staging performances of award winning musical The Book of Mormon.
The hilarious comedy has made its West End debut at the Prince of Wales Theatre London this March. The Book of Mormon show has been brought to London by its original creative team and has been running for sell-out performances night after night.
The house was given its present name after the then ‘Prince of Wales’ Edward VII and boasts its royal lineage still today. While evolving as one of the modern venues for hosting theatrical performances, the Prince of Wales Theatre London has withheld its unique pristine charms. Along with the dazzling musical running here, the venue is must visit to catch glimpse of its grand Edwardian architecture.

Brains behind some of the accredited comical sitcoms, Trey Parker and Matt Stone have joined hands along Avenue Q co-creator Robert Lopez to write this incredible piece. Daily shows of the musical will be hosted at the Prince of Wales Theatre between Monday and Saturday at 19:30 and matinees on Wednesday and Saturday at 14:30.
The Book of Mormon transports audiences to a trip to countryside in Uganda. It is the story of two Mormon missionaries Price and Cunningham to educate the mass there about The Book of Mormon. But people there have many serious issues like famine, AIDS, poverty and war to address, rather than embracing teachings of the book. Creators have impeccably created a hilarious plot featuring their struggle that bursts audiences to laughter all the while they watch the show.

The role of Elder Price will be played by Gavin Creel while Elder Cunningham will be portrayed by Jared Gertner.
