DISAPPOINTING PRODUCTION

I've seen this show five or six times now because I love it so much, so I was thoroughly looking forward to this production. Sadly, I felt let down. The sound quality was off, making the treble ear-piercing, and drowning out a lot of the words. The female lead couldn't do an African accent to save her life, which was thoroughly disappointing, especially considering she has some great lines, which were only overshadowed by her terrible pronunciation. Other than that, the show was great fun as always. I suppose if I'd never seen it before I would have rated it higher, but the last time I saw it, in Toronto, it was utterly fantastic, and this production sadly fell flat.

A NIGHT OF LAUGHTER, SATIRE AND GREAT TALENT ON STAGE

The cast had me at the first doorbell ringtone! Hilarious and fun with a superb cast, you'll laugh your way through the first act.....and laugh even more in the 2nd act. Great music score with powerful, fun songs, I could go see this show over and over again. Given theme and topics discussed, and the fact that there is explicit language, and gestures, I suggest minimum 16+ years old to attend. Anyone 'prudish' will probably take strong exception to the content. A really great night out and all the seats in the beautiful Ed Mirvish Theatre (orchestra and balcony) offer a comfortable seat with great sightlines. Really great to be able to enjoy a glass of wine or beer and take it to your seat. We munched on a bit of popcorn too. Ready for a night full of laughter - get tix to The Book of Mormon before it leaves the city. And btw, spontaneous standing ovation for the brilliant cast!

DO YOU EVEN KNOW?

This makes me sick. This is a horrible representation of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and is just down right wrong, appalling, and disrespectful. The horrible things that occur in this show is completely incorrect and it makes millions of people who are in this church have a incorrect bias placed on them. Please,if you do go, keep in mind. This is so very incorret!

SOUND DESIGN IS TERRIBLE

I had no really strong issue with the irreverence, being somewhat familiar with South Park. But I could really understand only about 25% of the dialogue, the distortion was so bad. When they were singing ensemble, the lyrics might as well have been gibberish. Surely this can be remedied. Does no one from the production sit in the audience??

FIX THE SOUND QUALITY OR CHARGE LESS

Saw this last night in San Jose - July 17, 2019. Great performers and play that was hampered by poor sound engineering. Same problem as past years according to these reviews. With that much volume are you really unable to make the voices come through. The balcony got loud music volume and unintelligible dialogue and lyrics - Thats ridiculous after the consistent past feedback below. Please upgrade your sound engineers and turn up the vocals in the mix. If s cast member sat in the balcony they would be pissed.

I WAS HOPING TO LEARN ABOUT MORMON RELIGION !!

Now I understand why they were so many young people!! Mocking Jesus , using F words against God 😢. Wish I knew before I went !! This is why our country is going downhill!!

HIGHLY DISAPPOINTING

I would not recommend this Play to anyone. Sadly some very talented actors lent their time to a disgusting, demeaning, disrespectful, racist and otherwise void-of-entertainment endeavor. Boys' junior high, locker-room humor would best describe content. Sorry I wasn't forewarned of the completely unsophisticated nature of The Book of Mormon. I would have gladly passed.

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!
