As theater fans across the country look for Book of Mormon tickets, the national tour continues to thrill audiences. The Tony award winning musical may still be drawing sell out crowds in New York, but the rest of the country has been anxious to laugh along with the antics of Elder Cunningham and his missionary partner, Elder Price.
St Louis theater fans have been among the most vocal about wanting this musical about Mormon missionaries to come to their city, and they've offered a jewel of a theater for the production's arrival. The Fox Theatre, also known as the Fabulous Fox, was built in 1929 by William Fox as one of the flagship theaters for his movie company. With over 5,000 seats, it was the second-largest theater in the country when it opened, and like many theaters, it was converted to a performing arts in the 1970s.
The interior of the theater is rich and sumptuous, but people are usually surprised to learn who the interior designer was for the project. William Fox's wife, Eve, kept buying fabrics, furniture, and fixtures on their many trips overseas, and the result is a mixture of exotic images from around the world.
With a luxurious interior, the restoration of the theater in the early 1980s was a massive project. The original stage was designed to house touring shows as well as films, but for the kind of Broadway shows like Matt Parker and Trey Stone write, a much larger area was needed. After two years and millions of dollars, the Fabulous Fox became one of the best stops for Broadway national tours.
Even with thousands of seats, the theater community in St Louis is quick to show up for the productions at the Fox, and with one of the most popular musicals of recent years arriving soon, seats are selling out for each of the performances.
