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.

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.

BIG IMPACT SHOW
Saw Book of Mormon and loved it - the theatre was packed and the audience were in hysterics from the opening doorbell number. In true south park style the show gets pretty close to the knuckle on some of the gags, you have to be open minded to enjoy the show, but the comic timing of the lead actors was just brillant. Excellent show!

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.

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.
