Response to Musical Running in Sydney


Emily Kwok, NSW/ACT Public Affairs Director for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) recently provided her perspective to the popular musical currently running in Sydney, and how the LDS Church has responded to it.

Emily Kwok points out that there has been a spike of interest in the religion in spite of the inaccuracies of the musical in its portrayal of Mormon missionaries.
