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

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.

As highlighted by most reviews this play is not for the easily offended or ‘snowflakes’ among us! But for those who don’t take life or the play too seriously it’s hilariously funny and the cast are very talented. I would highly recommend this play!

It was the last night in the city, and we had high hopes for a good show after reading the reviews. The theater was very nice except the seats were a bit small.I'm 235 lb and still spilled over into the person next to me. We ended up leaving after the first intermission. Not because we were offended, but after 20 minutes the jokes were just the same. Save your money and spend it elsewhere.

This show was, by far, the most offensive performance (theatre, TV or movie) that I've ever seen in my life. It's beyond politically incorrect. It's racist, sexist, vulgar, raunchy and aggressively sacrilegious / blasphemous. And I laughed my butt off from start to finish. Like piss your pants funny. Not for kids or the easily offended. It's truly gross. The obscenity is so jarring that you're forced to drop your social outrage card in the opening act and roll along with the cast as you find awkward gasps and hushed giggles soon evolve into roaring laughter. If you can't get over yourself and your own hangups, then you'll be miserable. Proceed with caution! Laugh with reckless abandon! Final Note: Know what made the entire experience even better? Going to review sites when I got home and reading the negative reviews from pearl clutching pantie twists.
