    "The Book of Mormon" is continuing its record-setting ways in Chicago.

    Less than a couple of weeks into its Chicago run, the Book of Mormon is already setting records.

    The musical set a house record at the Bank of America Theatre by grossing $1,645,201 for the week ending December 30.

    It's the third time the musical has smashed a house record, also packing them in at New York's Eugene O'Neill Theatre and San Francisco's Curran Theatre.

    The play, created by Trey Parker, Robert Lopez and Matt Stone, won nine Tony awards including "Best Musical" during its New York run.
