"In celebration of the making of The Book of Mormon, the authors, production team and entire original cast recount their experiences as they grew their show over a seven-year period from the initial idea to opening night on Broadway," according to press notes.
The book includes over 700 full-color photos and drawings; commentaries and behind-the-scenes anecdotes from the writers, director, choreographer, orchestrator, designers, the stars and entire Broadway cast; an exclusive article entitled "The Creation," written for the book by Suskin that focuses on creators Parker, Lopez and Stone; and the complete book and lyrics, extensively illustrated and annotated by the creators and cast.
The Book of Mormon, which currently plays at Broadway's Eugene O'Neill Theatre, also continues on its national tour, which began in August 2012. The musical is slated to open in the West End in February 2013.
