Fans of musicals, religion, profanity and just about everything else are celebrating news that The Book of Mormon, Broadway's latest smash hit, is landing in Chicago in December 2012.
The announcement has already boosted season sales for Broadway In Chicago, even though opening night is over 14 months away. Researchers for BIC have estimated Mormon will bring in over $500 million in economic gross for Chicago businesses.
The best news of all? The Bank of America Theatre is only 14 miles away from Cahn Auditorium, where the 71st annual Dolphin Show opens one month later in January 2013.
