Today In Broadway History

March 24, 2011. Anyone know what happened on that date? Well, if you are a huge theatre fan like me, you know that on that day, the smash hit The Book of Mormon opened on Broadway. The show, which won nine 2011 Tony Awards, including Best Musical of the Year, continues to play to play to packed audiences eight times a week at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre, Well it did, until the coronavirus put a stop to it. Now even though I am a huge South Park fan, I wasn't sure how Trey Parker and Matt Stone's humor would fare on the Great White Way. Thankfully I had nothing to worry about, as The Book of Mormon become one of the theatre's biggest success stories, with sold out productions playing on Broadway and around the world. Here's hoping that once this terrible pandemic is over, it and each and every other show on Broadway will not only reopen, but come back even stronger than ever. Until next time theatre fans.
