From the creators of 'South Park,' a Tony Award-winning, bawdy, irreverent, hilarious, and heartfelt musical about two missionaries sent to deepest, darkest Africa to spread the good word.

'The Book of Mormon' is a musical comedy that tells the story of two young Mormon missionaries sent to a remote village in northern Uganda, where a brutal warlord is threatening the local population. Naïve and optimistic, the two missionaries try to share the Book of Mormon, but have trouble connecting with the locals, who are more worried about war, famine, poverty and AIDS than about religion. The show was awarded nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

The New York Times

"On my fourth visit on a recent night, the show still had me at “Hello,”...I had anticipated a certain falling off of religious fervor: three years is a long time for a peppy musical to stay peppy. But gosh darn it if I didn’t feel born again all over again, ready to spread the word about the faith that this show preaches and, more importantly practices: the holy faith of musical comedy."

New York Post

"It’s a fiendishly well-crafted, hilariously smart — or maybe smartly hilarious — song-and-dance extravaganza. The show’s a hoot. The show’s a hit." Full Review

Time Out New York

"Brimming with cheerful obscenity, sharp satire and catchy tunes, The Book of Mormon is a sick mystic revelation, the most exuberantly entertaining Broadway musical in years." Full Review

The Guardian (UK)

“The Book of Mormon, gleefully subversive and artfully crafted, is being hailed as the second coming...Aggressively hilarious, blasphemous and almost indecently entertaining, for those of us who love a well-made musical with satirical bite, the show is manna from heaven.” Full Review

100
Variety

"Every song enhances the hilarity, expert staging heightens every gag, and the cast of fresh faces is blissfully good. Broadway hasn’t seen anything like it since Mel Brooks came to town with “The Producers,” only “Mormon” has better songs." Full Review

Backstage

"The sharp-edged book and fun score by Parker, Stone, and Lopez offer a screamingly funny yet sharply insightful full-length take on religion in general and Mormonism in particular. There are also pointed but loving tributes to musical comedy conventions, shockingly vulgar humor, and that rarity on Broadway these days: topical and effective satire." Full Review

New York Theater

"'The Book of Mormon' is sure to offend or at least discomfort Disney, the Government of Uganda, Wal-Mart, Starbucks, people who don’t like humor that used to be called unprintable, and the devout of any faith. Yet in an almost surreal way, 'The Book of Mormon' is indeed a happy musical, the kind of traditional sweet and sassy Broadway entertainment that offers a generous and strategic mix of gorgeous sets, razzmatazz dance numbers, catchy tunes, a clever story, and well-timed hilarity." Full Review

The Huffington Post

"Uproarious lines and highly entertaining numbers, beginning with as rousing as opener as B'way has seen in too long." Full Review

New York Daily News

"Oh boy, it's a real winner.The show is blissfully original, irreverent, outspoken and hilarious. And all that's tucked inside good -- no, great -- old-fashioned musical. It's a show where you catch yourself laughing one minute, mouth agape the next, eventually wiping away tears, and, finally, cheering." Full Review

The Associated Press

"Manages to offend, provoke laughter, trigger eye-rolling, satirize conventions and warm hearts, all at the same time." Full Review

NorthJersey.com

""The Book of Mormon" is a gleefully funny spoof, a blend of the clever and the crass that seldom goes more than 10 seconds without a big laugh. And it's not just about the jokes. They're embedded in a satisfying story, supported by witty, character-relevant songs...one of the most purely enjoyable musicals in years." Full Review

85
The Independent (UK)

"Yet The Book of Mormon, which has attracted full houses and a stream of celebrity fans, turns out to be an altogether different beast, one with a suspiciously tender core underneath all those jokes about repressed missionaries and villagers with scrotum infections." Full Review

Theatre is Easy

"Somehow both jaw droppingly ill-mannered and adorably innocent, not to mention one of the best new musicals in recent memory...While 'The Book of Mormon' is foul-mouthed, offensive, blasphemous, and incredibly rude, it is also one of the sweetest, most innocently hopeful musicals I have seen in a long time. And the fact that it manages to be both is a key factor in its success." Full Review

Los Angeles Times

“The Book of Mormon has the old-fashioned musical comedy heart of adults who spent much of their adolescence lip-syncing to original cast albums in their finished basements." Full Review

StageZine

"Hallelujah! 'The Book of Mormon' is the funniest religious spoof since Monty Python and the Holy Grail...A creative watershed in Broadway history...Directors Casey Nicholaw and Trey Parker make all the action, songs, and the actors’ fluid repartee blend together into a harmonious, uproarious evening of theater that, for many, will make one an instant convert to the genius of 'The Book of Mormon.'"

Stu on Broadway

"'The Book of Mormon,' a must for 'South Park' fans as well as the rest of mankind." Full Review

New York Magazine / Vulture

"The Book of Mormon, arriving after months of hype, somehow delivers even more than its ridiculously felicitous advance buzz promised: It’s an often uproarious, spiritually up-tempo satire not just of Mormonism, and not just religion in general, but of (no kidding) Occidental civilization itself." Full Review

Rolling Stone

"The new gold standard for rowdy fun on Broadway...The score, a diabolically melodic and merry blend of Monty Python and Rodgers and Hammerstein, is on its march into legend. Full Review

Entertainment Weekly

"An exhilarating Broadway musical at once revolutionary and classic, funny and obscene, uncompromising in production standards and unafraid of just about anything else." Full Review

Philadelphia Inquirer

"The show is a hoot - and a literal guilty pleasure...For all its outrageous mockery, the show encourages you appreciate whatever creation story gives you comfort and allows you to appropriate mystery." Full Review

CitiTour

"It’s a wild, outrageous ride, that’s sure to offend and please all in an instant…The choreography from Casey Nicholaw, who also directed along with Trey Parker, is exuberant and amusing. The score, although snappy and humorous, isn’t exactly filled with memorable showstoppers, although every number lands. We can safely say, that with the astonishing 'The Book of Mormon' Broadway will never be quite the same again!" Full Review

Hot Pepper Theater

"It's everything you love from South Park live - which I didn't think was possible. If you have the money and the time you should definitely go see it. It's amazing, it's crazy, it's wonderful, it's beautiful, it's a masterpiece." Full Review

“Money can buy you happiness! If you’re in possession of a ticket, you’ve wisely secured a seat in the premier-class cabin of delirium.” Full Review
