THE BOOK OF RACISM

If this web site gave me the capability to select ZERO stars I would gladly rate it that low! Did the actors do their jobs? Yes. But the content is racist, homophobic and mysogynistic. I cringed for the Black performers each time they delivered a demeaning line. Yes, I realize BOM is written by the creators of South Park, but this went above and beyond their version of dark humor. The blogger at Blackandoutside summarized my feelings on this piece of garbage perfectly in his August 29, 2016 post. Go there if you care to read more - no sense in reinventing the wheel AND this website won't allow me to include a link to the article "F**k the Book of Mormon". I was disappointed to see such a large number of theater goers in a city that is known for voting "blue" and where Black Lives Matter signs are in so many yards laughing and enjoying this vile, offensive piece of crap.

STUPID, OVER-RATED AND NOT FUNNY

I literally did not laugh once during this show. Most of the people around me didn't laugh either. It's not that I'm easily offended; I'm not. In fact I thought the show would be a lot more offensive. And it's not that I don't appreciate comedy-- I love good humor. But the comedy in this show was just stupid. You really have to be really, easily amused to find this to be a laugh out loud show. And there was only one good piece of music, which was the "I Believe" song-- which you can probably watch for free on YouTube, so I would save your money and do that. We go to lots of shows at PPAC, and this was the most boring one.

BOOK OF MORMON

Worst ever show. I could not believe the profanity. I was disgusted with the language and actions. We found no humor to this play. Never would recommend this to anyone.

BOOK OF MORMON - I WOULD GIVE IT -5 STARS IF I COULD

It is vulgar and offensive. How can anyone find the raping of babies and young people to be funny. Someone next to me asked why I wasn't laughing and I asked how can you be laughing at this subject matter. I walked out. I found it disheartening that the audience was clapping and laughing instead of booing and walking out.

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!

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.

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!
