The Book of Mormon, the musical with the most Tony nominations this season, officially opened on Broadway at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre March 24 and stars Andrew Rannells (Jersey Boys) and Josh Gad ("The Daily Show with Jon Stewart") as an unlikely pair of Mormon missionaries.


Rannells and Gad, along with other members of the cast and creative team have made numerous talk-show appearances; however, footage from the show is few and far between. Here, on "CBS Sunday Morning," The Book of Mormon is featured—including clips from musical numbers in the show, backstage interviews with the stars, and a view of the large crowd in front of the Eugene O'Neill hoping to score lottery tickets to the consistently sold-out musical.

Mormon, by Emmy Award-winning “South Park” creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone and Avenue Q Tony Award winner Robert Lopez, follows the two Mormons as they venture from Salt Lake City to AIDS-ravaged Uganda in the hopes of converting villagers with the story of Joseph Smith and the founding of the Mormon Church. The problem is only one of them has actually read the book.
