Show is everything folks said, entertaining, witty, irreverent and vulgar. Lots of laughs to be had! The facial expressions and dance numbers were a hoot.
I concur about the sound at the Opera House - it was tuned TOO LOUD for the acoustics of the place. I thought it was just me as I have great hearing but many people around me were saying the same
thing! It's too bad as it did affect my, and others', experience.

THE BOOK OF MORMON
Quite enjoyed the show today (Oct 15/2018)...sad to report that our
$166 seats in the balcony made it difficult to see the facial expressions
of the cast ,though their actions conveyed their meaning well. Main
complaint is we could not comprehend the dialogue or singing
,obviously because we were quite far from the stage. I’d guess 50-60%
of the voicesd dialogue and songs were unintelligible...Vexing to hear
garbled dialogue followed by hearty laughter from the main floor
audience over and over again! Yet ,did enjoy the show and the talent
and spirit of the cast. Would recommend the show but only on main

CRUDE HUMOR IN SOME SPOTS
The acting, singing and dancing were superb! However, the storyline uses some crude, risque humor, and the F word is used throughout. This could be offensive to many people. At some points I felt the storyline dragged abit, but the actors certainly gave it their all. The main characters received a standing O at the end. I saw two young boys in the crowd as we were leaving. I don't think it is appropriate for younger kids. I'd say this is "R" rated. There were two older ladies sitting behind us, and I did NOT hear them laughing at all. So, for me, it was disappointing. I had no idea that crude humor and bad language would be so prevalent.

PROBABLY A GREAT SHOW - COULDN'T UNDERSTAND SPEAKING/SINGING
I likely would have rated the show higher but for most of the show I could not understand what was being said or sung. The sound was WAY TOO LOUD so that the voices did not come through clearly. When
the music/sound was low enough so I could understand the words, the show was very good. The perfromers have great talent, just wish I could have enjoyed it.

A BIT REDUNDANT IN MOCKING REDUNDANCY
What was good was very good, but the show probably needs to be shortened by 30-40 minutes. really, I was waiting for the show to end -- never a good sign. Even poking fun at the redundancy of typical
Broadway shows became redundant after a while. There is a fine line between brilliant satire and piling on. You need to just barely make your point, and then move on to something else. I think it was
Johnny Carson who once said you should make no more than three jokes about the same topic no matter how funny. TBOM kept making the same joke a few too many times. The first act was brilliant and
fresh. By the middle of act two I began anticipating (correctly) almost every line in every song. That is not fresh. I concur with earlier views about the sound being too loud, and I am a veteran of rock
concerts. Lyric-driven songs must be understood completely in order to be effective. meanwhile, the acting was terrific, and my 14 year old daughter was not offended.

GREAT COMEDY AND ACTING BUT POOR TECHNICAL EXECUTION
This was our first time to see this play and to attend anything at Clowes Hall. I think
that the play was probably spectacular and funny but from where we were sitting, it
did not come across as such. We were in the 2nd Balcony, Last Row Center - seats
105 and 106. We struggled through the first half of the play as we could not hear the
lines well due to the orchestra being too loud. In addition, we missed much of the
visual humor as we were too far away to clearly see what was going on. The second
half of the show was better, but we still struggled to hear the lines.
Our take is that we would like to see a movie version of the play or see the play again
in a smaller theater with better management of acoustics. I doubt we will be back to

NOT THE QUALITY I EXPECTED
It may have been our location in the theater ... lower level on the side ... but the lighting and the sound were not tops. The lighting on stage reflected too intensely. It hurt my eyes! The sound was not super clear. The performers were very good.
If heaven promises to "have it all", then The Book of Mormon is paradise on Broadway - populated with the naughty and nice. After all, this provocative production has been running since 2011 - making it one of New York's top attractions!
