Disappointing, Quirky, Insipid, Original, Funny

See it if you love South Park. This is very broad, sophomoric humor. There are some good songs and lots of energy.

Don't see it if you tire of puerile jokes. There are much better musicals to see, I think, but I'm in the minority.

Funny, Hilarious, Must see, Relevant, Intelligent

See it if You like humor like The Daily Show or South Park but still in the form of a good old fashioned musical.

Don't see it if You're easily offended, though if you're open minded they're really quite fair and kind with how they treat religion.

Ambitious, Great acting, Great singing, Funny, Entertaining

See it if you like musicals with non-stop action: hilarity, and singing woven into an interesting plot. An energetic cast with good tech support.

Don't see it if you do not like making fun of religion or do not like swearing or carnal actions.

Great acting, Great singing, Great staging, Hilarious, Edgy

See it if you want to have fun! Pee in your pants funny with a few interesting themes to keep your brain engaged. Lots of great performances.

Don't see it if you are not amused by satire and exaggeration. Although much of the information about Mormons is true, here it is presented as entertainment

Critic Reviews (23)

The New York Times
August 20th, 2014

"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."

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."

New York Magazine / Vulture
March 28th, 2011

"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."

Entertainment Weekly
March 24th, 2011

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

Variety
March 24th, 2011

"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."

The Washington Post

“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.”

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."

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."
