‘Book of Mormon’ heads west

Musical to play 12-week run at Pantages

Broadway hot ticket “The Book of Mormon” has skedded a 12-week run in Los Angeles next year.

Show from “South Park” creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone and “Avenue Q” composer Robert Lopez will hit Hollywood in a lengthy stop on its national tour. The run at L.A.’s Pantages Theater, set for Sept. 5-Nov. 25, will immediately follow its Denver launch in August.

“Mormon” will be the first show in the 2012-13 Broadway/L.A. season. Further offerings remain to be announced, as does casting for the “Mormon” tour.

Helmed by Casey Nicholaw and Parker and choreographed by Nicholaw, “Mormon” quickly snowballed into the big hit of Broadway’s 2010-11 season, consistently logging stellar sales and taking home nine Tony Awards.
