    One of the most buzz-worthy musicals of the last decade, “The Book of Mormon” has enjoyed a monumentally successful run at Chicago’s Bank of America Theatre since it opened at the venue on Dec. 19, 2012. Originally scheduled to close June 2, the production was extended due to popular demand but leaves on Oct. 6, giving fans ample time to take in one last show.

    The Chicago cast, which comprises the production’s second national tour company, is currently led by Broadway cast member Nic Rouleau as Elder Price, Ben Platt of “Pitch Perfect” as Elder Cunningham, and “American Idol’s” Syesha Mercado as Nabulungi.

    Following the conclusion at Bank of America Theatre, the Chicago company will head west to Denver—the home base of “The Book of Mormon” and “South Park” co-creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone—where it will set up shop for three weeks (Oct. 22-Nov. 24) before heading to several other cities, including San Francisco and Los Angeles.

    Other touring companies are in the process of bringing the production to venues across the country, performing at the Washington, D.C. Kennedy Center until Aug. 18 before heading to four Texas cities: Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, and Austin. Performances for the two tours are scheduled through July of 2014, with stops in other major cities like New Orleans, La. (Oct. 15-27), Atlanta, Ga, (Jan. 28-Feb. 9, 2014), Boston, Mass. (April 1-27, 2014), and Portland, Ore. (July 8-20, 2014).

    “The Book of Mormon” has been adored by critics since its debut back in 2011, as the original Broadway production garnered 14 Tony nominations and nine wins, including Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, and Best Original Score. Regardless of the city, Book of Mormon tickets have been selling out shows night after night.
