The San Antonio debut of “The Book of Mormon” — the most highly anticipated show of the fall — definitely lives up to the hype – Reviewed By Deborah Martin,

The touring show, the kickoff to the Majestic Theatre‘s 2013-14 Broadway in San Antonio season, is a boisterous, gleefully irreverent musical following a pair of young Mormons on their mission to Uganda.

Elder Price (the pitch-perfect Mark Evans) is an ideal representation of Mormonism: Carefully groomed, confident, trim and completely dedicated to his faith. His assigned companion for this two-year mission is his opposite on pretty much every score. Elder Cunningham (the very funny Christopher John O’Neill) sports a shaggy thatch of dark hair and is rumpled, doughy and endearingly awkward. When lost for an answer to a question, he will simply make something up. Which means that his take on the establishment of the Mormon church — delivered when he’s under pressure — blends founder Joseph Smith’s actual bio with bits and pieces from “Star Wars,” “Star Trek” and “The Lord of the Rings.”

Once they arrive in Uganda, the missionaries find themselves in a village with a slew of problems — including rampant AIDS, extreme poverty and the very real threat of being shot by a warlord (the fantastic Derrick Williams) — that previous missionaries and other do-gooders have not been able to alleviate.

How they attempt to fix things swiftly reveals what each of the young men is made of. They are aided by Nabulungi (the wonderful Samantha Marie Ware), a young woman who takes a chance on believing in what they’re selling.

For all of the scatological humor and the liberal use of profanity, there’s a deeply humane, open-hearted quality to the whole show.
