This show was hilarious! We laughed from beginning to end. I will see this one again.

Anne Mercer

By far one of the funniest Broadway shows I’ve ever seen. Keep in mind that it is certainly not appropriate for children or younger teenagers. Have an open mind and be ready to laugh until you cry. It is written/produced by the creators of South Park, after all!


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.

"Profane, Vulgar, Uncomfortable and PERFECT"

People... before you spend hundreds of dollars to see this show, read what it's about. I can't believe how many people say they went to this and were surprised and disgusted at the content. I for one, loved that this show was littered with profanity, uncomfortable themes, shocking songs, and of course… the Frog! Well done!

"Hilarious, Vulgar, Smart, and a truly great message"

Leave it to Trey Parker and Matt Stone to create such a filthy, profanity ridden play that still ends up being smarter and more beautiful than any other play I have seen in a long time, and I have seen many plays in the past. If you are easily offended, this may not be the play for you. The F-word is dropped well over 100 times, including the infamous song that basically says "F**k you God" not to mention Mormons not always being put in the best light. That being said, however, it really gives light to the struggles Africans experience on a daily basis and it's ending message is really beautifully delivered, without being offensive. I could not recommend this play highly enough. The vulgarity is extreme, the show is gut cramping hilarious, the message wonderful, the cast outstanding, the songs are catchy, I honestly can't think of anything wrong with the play myself. Just go see it!

"Perfect if you South Park and are not easily offended"

Brought tickets to see the book of Mormon during our first trip to NYC from the UK as we have never been to see it in London. Buy your tickets well in advance to get a decent seat (seating downstairs is slightly tiered) If you’re a fan of Matt& Treys work (South Park/baseket ball) you will love this. Almost everything/everyone is poked fun at so I would not recommend this to anyone who is easily offended. The songs WILL get stuck in your head for days and the actors/actresses do an amazing job. I did feel that the tickets we had were on the slightly expensive side but I am glad we have seen it

The show is super fun, even if you don’t know anything about Mormon religion, you’ll get it. The only negative side is that the seats are very small. Apart from this, the show is really worth it!
