VIDEO: Get a Super-Speed Look at THE BOOK OF MORMON's On Tour Load-In
"So many possibilities."
You might call an empty stage a kind of blank page. Every season set designers and stage crews fill Broadway's theatres with new and exciting possibilities. Some come and go all too quickly. Others have stayed put for decades.
Over at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre, Scott Pask's set for THE BOOK OF MORMON has remained cozy for over five years, but now that the show is on tour, replicas sometimes have to be installed for just a handful of performances before they're broken down and loaded in at the next stop.
This fascinating time-lapsed video offers a four-and-a-half minute glimpse of the whole process.
Written by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone and Avenue Q and Frozen co-creator Robert Lopez, The Book of Mormon opened on March 24th, 2011. Winner of nine Tony Awards, the Broadway production has broken the house record at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre more than 50 times and has played 256 consecutive weeks at over 100% capacity.
In addition to Broadway, there are currently two National Tours, a four time Olivier Award winning production in London, and an upcoming production in Melbourne, Australia, which begins performances in January 2017.
