Why see The Book of Mormon?

The genre-defining, side-splitting, boundary-breaking hit!

With NINE Tony Awards - including Best Musical - a Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album, and leading New York Times critic Ben Brantley himself calling it the "best new musical of the century", The Book of Mormon's 2011 debut was a pop culture moment. Still enjoying concurrent engagements in London's West End and on Broadway, the bad boy of musical theatre remains a top draw, leaving audiences either outraged or in pain from laughing to this day. 

Now heading out across the country, don't miss your chance to catch this modern classic. Just be prepared for the lewd, the crude, and downright naughty songs and antics along the way...

From the four-time Emmy Award-winning creators of South Park, Trey Parker and Matt Stone comes this outrageous comedy musical about a pair of mismatched Mormon newbies who are sent on a mission to a place that's just about as far from Salt Lake City as you can get - Uganda. The musical was written in collaboration with Robert Lopez, the Tony Award-winning writer of Avenue Q and Frozen, and co-directed by Mr. Parker and three-time Tony nominee Casey Nicholaw (Spamalot, The Drowsy Chaperone).

With a roof-lifting 19 original songs that range from filthy and obscene to sweet and full of heart, this is sure to win over 'mostly' everyone (although perhaps don't bring your local pastor along to see it).

What is the story?

'The greatest time of a Mormon kid's life is his mission,' sings Elder Kevin Price before finding out where and who with, his journey starts. But things are not as the handsome and pious Elder Price predicted when he's paired up with the hapless and dumpy Elder Cunningham and sent to Uganda for their first mission! Sorry boys, Disneyland, this ain't.

The adventure unfolds as Elder Price and Elder Cunningham try to preach The Book to a local farming community that has been decimated by disease and ruled under an iron fist by the evil warlord, General Butt-F*cking Naked . Meanwhile, the disaster-prone duo learns about themselves, the true meaning of friendship and what their religion ultimately means, not only to themselves but also to their new flock.

Did you know?

Instead of picketing Broadway or theaters nationwide as originally feared, The Mormon church has taken the good-natured and risque lampooning of The Book Of Mormon with a wry grin and have instead taken out advertisements in the show's playbills across the world, under the heading 'The book is always better'. Now that is what we call a darned good sport!

Hilarious Ingenius Unmissable

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!

My new favorite!

I’m a theater geek and had the soundtrack memorized but SEEING it brought it to a whole other level! The characters and visuals are hilarious! The whole audience laughed every second including my grumpy teenage daughter! During intermission everyone was full of smiles and we left with a high that I’ve never experienced after a show before! The show is the whole package, so creative and funny and the music is so good! ... Read more
