NASHVILLE–Theatergoers here are getting a low-key dose of real proselytizing when they come for the sold-out Broadway tour of The Book of Mormon.

Rocky Spiker–Elder Spiker to his colleagues–holds open the door as ticket holders rush to get out of the cold.

“You know the book is always better,” he tells them, eliciting chuckles.  Or, “We’re real Mormon missionaries.  Come talk to us after the play.”

His fellow missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints wear suits and ties and hand out stacks of the Book of Mormon or cards offering free copies.  And they plan to come to every one of the performances through Saturday, capping off their run with an open house Sunday night at one of their wards in the Green Hills neighborhood of Nashville.

Mormons have staged similar campaigns across the USA.
