Mark Evans' The Book of Mormon, actor on stage holding the book of mormon, Toronto, Ontario

Who's that knocking on the door?

When the doorbell rings, it really could only be a handful of people – Avon calling, travelling vacuum salesperson, if you were really lucky it was Girl Guide cookies and if you were really, really lucky it was the good people wondering if you had found Jesus Christ.

The Book of Mormon spreads the good word in Toronto for a limited engagement starting April 30. Tickets are available by visiting Mirvish.com, or by calling TicketKing at 416-872-1212 or 1-800-461-3333. Tickets are limited to 8 tickets per order.

The Book of Mormon tells the story of two young Mormon missionaries sent to a remote village in northern Uganda, where a brutal warlord looms over the people. Naïve and optimistic, the two missionaries try to share the Good Book, but have trouble connecting with the locals, who are more worried about impending local disaster than about religion.

It’s the perfect blend of South Park sensibilities and the energetic musical crassness of Avenue Q. It couldn’t be anything else since the show was created by South Park creators, Trey Park and Matt Stone, in addition to Robert Lopez, the co-creator of Avenue Q.

If you love to laugh, and maybe even if you don’t, make sure this is the show you see this year. Don’t let those multiple Tony Awards wins and sellout shows on Broadway speak for you, speak for yourself and renew your faith this spring with The Book of Mormon.

Sarah Chan never wants to own a car. Steadiest on her own two feet, it is her preferred method of travel to explore the streets of the city where she lives and works. She grew up as a tomboy, listening to 680 News and with a mother who could not cook. Via strange magic, she is now hardly ever found wearing pants (opting for dresses and skirts, not public indecency), lives for the performing arts and is eating – always eating. Sarah often takes her walking talents, her love of street style, art galleries, opera and her insatiable appetite around the world. A constant sufferer of cabin fever and wanderlust, for which the only cure is hopping on board an airplane. Sarah is very particular with customs agents around the world where they are allowed to stamp her passport. Favourite place in TO: A moment of rare silence at the crosswalk at Wellington and Spadina.
