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.

"Very funny. Have a sense of humor or don’t go!! "

I found this show extremely funny. Not for the faint hearted or those who don’t like freedom of speech!!! Very crude in places but you wouldn’t choose to see this show if you didn’t already know anything about it. Swearing, sexual references, some scenes that people would take great offense to...... however as I’m very open minded and love a good laugh I found this show very very amusing. The singer who played Elder Price has an amazing voice. I’m glad we went to see it and would go again in the WestEnd. We got really decent seats at $60 each. Theatre not too big either. Really good view.

"Many years later, still wonderful"

I saw the early production with original cast many years ago. This musical still is a special, exciting theater experience. Understudy for Elder Cunningham held his own in a major role. I found it a bit racist in the portrayal of the African roles. Hadn't before. Sign of the times. But they get away with their blasphemous presentation of the Latter Day Saints religion, so I chalk it all up to artistic (comedic) license. I laughed out loud and really enjoyed it, again.

Very funny musical comedy written by the creators of South Park and Avenue Q. Very tongue in cheek songs with laugh out loud moments. Please do not attend if you are easily offended or with young children as per family in front of me.

Please do not go to this show before checking it out. We found it crude, degrading, dangerous and were ashamed to be in the theatre with people laughing at the content. We wanted to leave at interval but thought surely it would somehow redeem itself. We are so sad that people laugh at jokes about sexual abuse of babies, animals, female circumcision etc. I will do my best to dissuade anyone from seeing this show as it adds nothing to the world.
