State's Best Nominations 2016

The State and Broadway in Columbia's "Book of Mormon" Sweepstakes

The State and Broadway in Columbia's "Book of Mormon" Sweepstakes

The Book of Mormon, the nine-time Tony Award-winning Best Musical, follows two young missionaries sent to Uganda to convert people to the Mormon religion.

One missionary, Elder Price, is an enthusiastic go-getter with a strong dedication to his faith. His partner, Elder Cunningham, is a socially awkward but well-meaning nerd whose tendency to embroider the truth soon lands him in trouble.

Upon their arrival, Elders Price and Cunningham learn that in a society plagued by AIDS, poverty and violence, a successful mission may not be as easy as they expect.
