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.

I was looking forward to this show as I knew it was supposed to be funny, but it was well beyond my expectations and was the most hilarious thing I am have ever seen. The cast was stellar and the content was over the top satirical in the best way possible. I would have went back and watched it again the same day.

We went expecting a good play. This is the worst shows I have seen in Broadway. I simply did not laugh. It is not satire, it is a cruel mockery. Save yourself your time and money. I have no idea why it got some tony awards.

Laughed throughout at this irreligious, scandalous, satirical comedy. No creed, religion, ethnic group escapes the scathing poking of fun by the writer. Brilliantly performed by the cast. You have to see it - as long as you're not easily offended!

I have always wanted to see this show but particularly on Broadway and it didn’t disappoint. The stage, the music, the actors and the comedy were brilliant. I laughed from start to end. It is well worth seeing and if you are in NYC then definitely have this on your list of things to do.

This play needs a warning label. My wife and I both found it to be gratuitously crude and offensive. We're surprised a Broadway production could get so much mileage on a pileup of juvenile humor.
