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.

"Amusing , but do your research "

I didn’t really know the full extent of the story but knew that there was a chance some people could be offended . I laughed quite a few times and some of the songs are very good . Overheard the guy behind the bar talking to someone and he said they have people walk out in disgust every single night . So please know what you are letting yourself in for , remember it’s written by the guys who wrote South Park so it is sweary, there is toilet humour, bit racist etc but very amusing and I enjoyed it a lot .

Booked tickets well in advance for surprise trip with my wife. So I already had the pre-fun (also deepdiving in the story and reading reviews). It was beyond my expectations. So funny and taking the piss out of everything. But still a Full On Broadway musical with dancing, singing and somewhat a deeper layer.

Did not find it remotely funny. I faked laughed and smiled because everyone around me was. Really disappointed very cheap humour. I'm not religious so it had nothing to do with that.

Didn’t expect it to be sooo funny, laughed almost every minute! The cast, the performance were amazing, the story - hilarious! Would definitely watch again if I get a chance. P.S Religious people need to get the humor right there, it is not about anti-religion. P.P.S I guess the view is great from almost every seat. I picked one of the cheapest available (M18 and M20 for my friend) and these were great seats (in our opinion).
