Smash-hit Mormon musical The Book Of Mormon is to debut in Salt Lake City, Utah, where the faith's headquarters is based.

The show, which pokes fun at Mormon missionaries in Uganda, will run for a month at The Capitol Theatre next summer (15).

The venue is less than half a mile from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' flagship temple.

South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker's irreverent production debuted on Broadway in 2011. The show's West End production received six Olivier Awards nominations on Monday (10Mar14).
