Overview

Presented at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre, The Book of Mormon offers an old-style musical with modern humor, complete with big song and dance numbers, impressive Broadway-style belting, and a hilariously sarcastic storyline. The show playfully pokes fun at religion, race, poverty and sexuality, and is recommended for guests over the age of 16, as explicit language and topics are used.

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.

Great show. We really wanted to see this, and paid a little more than other shows we could have seen. It was well worth paying that bit extra though. It is such a funny show, it is intelligent and makes you sit and listen and watch throughout. If your easily offended, they maybe skip this, but we arent offended easily and loved the show.

Didn’t want to miss a thing. No slow spots. Very funny and crazy. As others have mentioned, it’s not for people easily offended, especially when religion is not taken seriously. I have never seen South Park because that is not really my kind of thing but seeing the Book of Mormon was a very fun night out. I thought the Staff from the woman directing you where to go at the box office, to the ticket counter, bartender and women’s bathroom attendant, all very nice and good at their job. A really great experience. Orchestra was excellent too!

"AWESOME and a MUST SEE (unless you get offended easily!)"

I took my mature 16 year old daughter to see this and she LOVED IT (I did, too!) There is A LOT of bad language and many mature situations. Book of Mormon is not for someone who might be easily offended but if you have a warped sense of humor like we do, you'll love it! Buyer beware: if you get obstructed view tickets, you WILL have an obstructed view. I'm not complaining...we got these at the box office on the day of performance and were grateful to just get into the building for the show. (We were in mezzanine row B seats 26/28). The performance was amazing! We can't wait to see it again (and I'm buying tickets in advance next time!) :) 15 minute intermission - total showtime 2.5 hours.
