By the Book

THE smash hit mu­si­cal Book Of Mor­mon opened at the Princess The­atre last night with the show’s cre­ators TREY

PARKER and MATT STONE at­tend­ing — and admitting re­lief that they could sit back and watch, rather than worry about the show.

Book of Mor­mon has al­ready taken Lon­don and New York by storm, with Mel­bourne host­ing the Aus­tralian pre­miere.

The event brought the show’s Aus­tralian su­per fans to the red car­pet.

ROB MILLS ar­rived dressed in char­ac­ter (hint­ing per­haps for an un­der­study role) and tot­ing a Book of Mor­mon. To­day’s LISA WILKINSON ad­mit­ted to hav­ing seen the show twice in New York and twice in Lon­don, al­though jet­lag ru­ined her first New York show.

“I think I nod­ded off and missed a scene or two,” she said.

HAMISH BLAKE and ZOE FOS­TER

BLAKE stepped out for the first time since an­nounc­ing they were ex­pect­ing their sec­ond child. Bach­e­lorette star GEORGIA LOVE re­vealed she was rapidly turn­ing her beau LEE EL­LIOTT into a mu­si­cal the­atre fan.

“Out first real date af­ter the show ( Bach­e­lorette) fin­ished was at night at Kinky Boots — he loved it,” she said.

Ra­dio babe SAM FROST ar­rived with a mate, not a date, af­ter re­cently sep­a­rat­ing from her boyfriend of 18 months

SASHA MIELCZAREK. Also at­tend­ing were Mad Max di­rec­tor GE­ORGE MILLER, ANDY
