Book of Mormon Performing “Hello” at The 66th Tony Awards

Posted by & filed under , , .

The Book of Mormon on broadway has completely taken over as far as high grossing shows. Besides Wicked, it is one of the hardest shows to get to see in NYC, unless you use the tricks here on how to buy broadway tickets. The show is absolutely hilarious and the touring cast is starting shortly. If you want tickets, you have to go fast, otherwise they will sell out before you get a chance to buy them. Everyone loves shows that are parodies and funny and when you have a show like this and let them perform at awards shows or in opening numbers like at the Tony awards, there are a ton of ways that they can tie in one of their songs. I was at Kristin Chenoweth on tour on Tony’s night so I didn’t get to see the performance of the song “Hello” from The Book of Mormon at the 66th annual Tony awards, but I did get to watch the video on YouTube and couldn’t stop laughing.

What I love about this is that they completely parody Mormons who go door to door to recruit new people to their Church, which is also the opening act of the show and what they did was combine the two of them together and make a parody out of the religion as well as the show and perform it by recruiting Actors and Nominees from the 66th annual Tony Awards to the church with the song “Hello” from the Book of Mormon.

The show is awesome and the songs are great and what I love about the characters performing Hello from the Book of Mormon at the 66th annual Tony Awards is that they actually pull it off really well. I’m pretty sure they told the Nominees that they would be coming to their doors, mainly so they’d actually be there in their dressing rooms, but I don’t know if they actually told them that they would be performing one of the songs while they were getting ready and actually acting like Elders recruiting them for the church. The performance of Hello from the Book of Mormon at the Tony awards was amazingly well done and the parody video of Hello from the Book of Mormon at the Tony awards is seriously fun to watch.

    Saw the opening of the Tonys and, I believe, it was the best in years. If only I got to see the rest. Can’t recall what was airing on the competing networks during each time slot but my partner needed me in the living room for something, Thank goodness for wikipedia and getting e-mails alerts from L.A. Times so I could see and read who won each award. Congrats to Mike Nichols and his revival for Death of a Salesman. Did Phillip Seymour Hoffman win? I can’t remember of the top of my head. I know that Andrew Garfield lost. Congratulations again to Audra McDonald.

    Agreed. I loved the book of mormon! Saw it twice with josh gad and Andrew rannells both amazing actors–too bad they are no longer performing in the show.
