Description

from The Book of Mormon
Winner of 9 Tony Awards® including 2011 Best Musical.


From Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the creators of South Park, and Bobby Lopez, co-creator of Avenue Q, comes a Broadway musical that Ben Brantley of The New York Times calls "the best musical of this century.

This outrageous musical comedy follows the misadventures of a mismatched pair of missionaries, sent halfway across the world to spread the Good Word. One serious and dedicated and the other socially awkward yet well meaning, these Mormons are sent to Uganda to convert citizens to the Mormon religion. When they arrive in Africa, the missionaries find a community grappling with poverty, AIDS and violence.

Entertainment Weekly says The Book of Mormon is "the funniest musical of all time," and Jon Stewart of The Daily Show declares it's "a crowning achievement, so good it makes me angry."

This show is approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes. Parental advisory: Contains explicit language. Children under the age of 4 are not permitted in the theatre.

Shocking beyond belief.....even after all the warnings! Absolutely superbly funny. Jake Morrissy as McKinley (I believe he only started in the role very recently) stole the show, simply brilliant.

This is by far the funniest play/musical that I've seen. It's hilarious from beginning to end. Very well written and acted. Not for the sensitive.

This was a very funny show with good performances and good music. Slightly raunchy. The theater itself is not great. It’s like flying coach. Seats are very close to each other and uncomfortable. Please people - going to the theater should be an occasion. I don’t know when it became acceptable to dress like a slob when going to the theater. Seeing people in ripped jeans, flip flops and tee shirts makes me want to slit my wrist.

I went with my 22 year old daughter. She had seen it before. It was my favorite thing about my whole New York trip!- Yes it was so inappropriate even a little embarrassing to me(48 year old mom)- but I laughed and was so entertaining. Very inappropriate that’s for sure. But beyond that the actors were magnificent!! Great choreography! Highly recommend. My favorite show of the 3 I went to.
