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!

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.

Saw this is a traveling show and forgot just how funny it was. Plus, I think they make the traveling show a tad more PG-13. We brought a teenager and there were others in the audience, but you may want to think twice if you're bringing "unsophisticated" teens or are sensitive to raw humor. Plus. much of the humor is irreverent, so be prepared. That said, it is hilariously funny and a must see. The O'Neill theater is intimate and there is not a bad seat in the house. We were in the second Mezzanine and felt like we were on top of the stage. The oddest part is the drinks at the bar. No matter what you get, it is served in an adult sippy cup. That is new since I was last at a Broadway show. And expensive as you pay around $5.00 just for the cup. Oh well, it's vacation. Had a great time. The show does have an intermission as it runs over two hours. Go, enjoy and look for the next chapter in the Book of Mormon. Would say more, but would be a spoiler.

I haven’t laughed this much in years! The theatre is quite small so you should have a good view wherever you sit. The cast are sensational and we came away singing all the songs. My faves were Sal Tlake Ka Sity and Turn It Off. Spooky Mormon Hell Dream was brilliant. You can buy merchandise afterward, like the F*** Frogs 🐸 If you only see one broadway musical in your whole life, make it this!!!

When planning a trip to NYC I had to find a musical that my husband might enjoy so this was a no-brainer. It was hysterically funny (yet vulgar and offensive to some - rated R?). We both loved the show and found it entertaining. The theater was quaint and not a bad seat in the house.
