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, raunchy comedic musical. If you're familiar with South Park, you'll know what to expect. The writers pull no punches. The songs were surprisingly catchy and the performers were excellent!

Funny as hell! Loved it so much, we just want to go again, and again and again. As per other reviews, stay away if you're not open-minded with a wicked sense of humor.

"Hilarious! Would Highly Recommend"

My boyfriend and I went to see the Book of Mormon while visiting NYC this May. The show was hilarious, although I would not recommend it for anyone who is easily offended and definitely would not recommend for children. The theater is not too big, so any seat is fine, no need to splurge to sit in the front row unless you really want too, you can see just fine from anywhere. We bought our tickets through the TodayTix app, which worked out great.

"Vulgar, Inappropriate content and material. Don't waste your $$$"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed May 05, 2019 NEW
I had heard so much about this play that I wanted to see it. I was not amused with the vulgarity ie. raping babies, nasty language and making fun of others and their religious beliefs. I would not recommend this play to anyone and was uncomfortable during most of the show. I had no idea it was associated with South Park. I wouldn't have wasted my $$ if I had known that. There was some talented singers and dancers in the musical. This was disgusting and very offensive.
