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!


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.

"Expected more from the South Park guys"

I know that this show has garnered a number of accolades, so my wife and I were really let down by the end product upon visiting. We knew the show wouldn't be G rated and that's part of the reason we went. I'm not a big Broadway show kind of guy so we both agreed to this production in part because the South Park creators generally are bankable when it comes to entertainment. Not so and the laughs didn't come as fast and furious as the tv show. I know they're too different genres obviously, but still wanted to laugh more. The seats in this theatre, at least in the mezzanine are extremely uncomfortable no matter how tall or short you are. The theatre also had long lines for the bathrooms and concessions. We both agreed following the show that we probably would've enjoyed a more traditional show like the Lion King, Cats, etc.

Hilarious, fantastic acting & singing. Not for sensitive audience or minors. The theatre is beautiful, seats are small and not much leg room but not a bad view from any seat so no need to splurge on more expensive seats.

The Book of Mormons is a fantastic show combining great singing, dancing and humor. The leads are great showman and an entertaining show for most ages. There are some PG-13 content so younger kids may not be suitable.

Irreverent content but delivered very well by talented actors. Very strong language and not at all appropriate for children.

This musical was by far the best one I have ever seen. I would love to go see it again. FYI there is nothing religious about this show. Would not take young kids to it.
