FUNNIEST PERFORMANCE I'VE EVER SEEN
This is the funniest show I've ever seen in my entire life (including musicals, plays, and even film.) Not only is it hilarious, but the music and dancing is just as wonderful as a traditional musical's singing and dancing would be. It’s such a well-written show that truly understands adult humor, keeping the audience laughing constantly. I wouldn’t go as far to call it crude, but it is meant for an older audience (coming from a seventeen year-old girl.) Even though I’ve seen other masterpieces such as Phantom of the Opera, Lion King, and Sweeney Todd, The Book of Mormon is my new favorite musical. It’s incredible and definitely worth your time and money.

Our adult kids got us tickets to the Year Years Eve show for Christmas. It was an absolute blast and the Winsphere theater is beautiful and a great place to see a show. Highly recommend If you have a sense of humor, that you see this show. If you don't have a sense of humor, see it anyway. It should help you get one. Bravo!

TIRED FROM LAUGHING
Maybe the greatest work of comedy in any medium in years. I had tears in my eyes during the 'I am Africa' song and could hardly hold it together. Other reviews do a great job of explaining what it is, but this play made me feel like I could of spent twice the ticket amount and still got a bargain. Seats were great, sounded great, and DON'T BRING YOUR CHILDREN!

Funny and smart. We had a great time.

Without a doubt, BoM is the best show to come out of the musical theater world in years. The story is uplifting, the characters are both lovable and relatable, and every song perfectly caters to the moment in the show. The scenarios in the show are hysterically realistic, and the story's resolution is nothing short of heartwarming. Overall, BoM displays musical theater in its finest light and breathes a breath of fresh air into the lungs of Broadway/musical theater, which has become stale and commercialized over the years. In addition, BoM is written by the comedic geniuses Stone, Parker, and Lopez. I am dumbfounded by theatergoers who criticize the show's vulgarity, and in return go about telling others how it is a "bad" show. This could not be further from the truth. Perhaps these patrons should use some common sense and research a show before seeing it, rather than seeing it, being surprised by it, and then lying to others about its quality because they had their feelings hurt.

LOVED THE SHOW, BUT IT WAS TOO LOUD
i gave the show 5 stars because it is clever and funny, but we missed some of the lyrics because the speakers were on TOO LOUD. Not the actors fault, more of a technical problem.

Mormon is not for the faint hearted, once you accept the foul-mouthed irreverence and vulgarity you can apprreciate the creativity, terrific dance numbers, witty score, imaginative sets and choreography that make Book Of Mormon THE musical to see this year.

One of the best musicals I have EVER seen!
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!Read full review
