'Book of Mormon' Chicago run begins this week
December 10, 2012 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- The Broadway smash ''Book of Mormon'' opens for previews Tuesday night at the Bank of America Theatre in the Loop.
It's a musical by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone about two mismatched Mormon missionaries assigned to Africa.
Stone and Parker first thought "Book of Mormon" would be a film. They say it will probably come to the big screen -- one day.
The musical's Chicago run is scheduled to run until the beginning of June but could be extended.
