The Book of Mormon will soon make its way to Chicago

 

Travelers looking to catch Broadway’s smash-hit musical “The Book of Mormon” will soon have options other than searching for flights to New York City. It was recently announced that the musical will have a second home in Chicago beginning in December 2012.

 

Snagging “Mormon” is seen as a big coup for the Windy City. The musical quickly became one of the most sought-after titles in production after winning nine Tony Awards back in June. New York shows are already sold out well into 2012 and the musical is routinely grossing more than $1 million per week.

 

Chicago’s Bank of America Theater offers almost double the occupancy of New York’s Eugene O’Neill Theatre, which means the Chicago version could pull nearly $2 million per show.

 

“Mormon” is initially booked for a 12-week run in Chicago, but all indications are that the Windy City will become a long-running second home for the production. “The Book of Mormon” was written by “South Park” creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone alongside “Avenue Q’s Robert Lopez.

    I think it’s great that they’re expanding the run of this show. I found some cheap Book of Mormon tickets and loved it. Tickets for Broadway are always great, but being able to see good shows in Chicago or LA or somewhere else gives us more choices. Choice is good.
