TALENTED PERFORMERS

We enjoyed the performance for the most part. The singing and dancing were wonderful. But the whole point of the musical was to understand the words. Sitting in the Grand Tier 2, on Oct 16th, the music was way too loud! Therefore we could not understand the words because the music was too loud! And it wasn't just us. I asked the people around us if they didn't think the music was too loud to understand the words and they agreed.

NON STOP LAUGHTER

Opening night was amazing. The cast had so much energy. If you need a good laugh, this one is for you! Fun and witty, very entertaining. A must see..... the complements could continue.

GOOD TIMES

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.

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.

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.

What we thought

HILARIOUS ingenius Unmissable

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!
