Book Of Mormon Musical – A Wise Mix of Nasty Satire and Compassionate Truth Telling

Book Of Mormon is currently performing in Chicago for a long run. Tony Adler reviewed the musical at ChicagoReader.com. Here is the review:

I know it’ll seem incomprehensible to you fans of talking turds, but I’ve never paid Comedy Central’s South Park much mind one way or another. And when New York fell all over itself last year appreciating The Book of Mormon, I wondered if there wasn’t just a smidge of hyperbole in calling the musical by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone (along with Robert Lopez) the best of the “century.”

Now that I’ve seen the Chicago production, however, I’ve been—well—converted.

A wise mix of nasty satire and compassionate truth telling, Parker, Stone, and Lopez’s tale of Mormon missionaries in Uganda is as entertaining—and, strangely, uplifting—a piece of work as anything in recent American theater. Although the book draws whole quivers full of big red arrows to everything that’s ludicrous about the Mormon way, it also ends up making a case for the hope we all derive from silly myths. Meanwhile, playful as it is, it ranks up there with Lynn Nottage’s Ruined in exposing the danger, dignity, and distortions of African life. The cast is uniformly and perfectly seductive. And is that Steppenwolf’s famously earnest James Vincent Meredith, showing a new side of himself as the Ugandan village chief? Incredible.

The Book of Mormon Broadway in Chicago – Review

The Book of Mormon started for a long run in Chicago. Clint May reviewed the musical at ChicagoTheaterBeat.com. Here is the review:

Not only does The Book of Mormon have Matt Stone and Trey Parker’s trademark themes of the hilarities that evolve from cognitive dissonance, hypocrisy, blasphemy, religious absurdity, etc. mingled with their equally trademark over-the-top profanity and lampooning, it has something a lot of people overlook when discussing their work: an obvious love for their characters and an overriding theme of the power of friendship and loyalty. Without the foundation of Stan and Kyle’s enduring friendship in South Park, it’s doubtful America would have followed them through 200+ episodes.

f you’ve never seen Mormon missionaries walking two-by-two in their dark pants and tie with white shirt, Book of Mormon in hand, then the opening number, “Hello!” establishes perfectly what to expect.

The Book of Mormon makes a pointed observation about the nature of religion, doubt, and friendship.

Book of Mormon runs a gamut of traditionally styled numbers that mingle hilariously with the off-kilter lyrics that are more than the sum of their surface shock value. Grounded in a big heart that loves even as it skewers, it’s the kind of affection that anchors us for a carnival-style journey into the heart of belief that takes us to heaven even if we have to visit a “Spooky Mormon Hell Dream.” (easily one of the funniest scenes I’ve ever seen in a musical).

The Book of Mormon San Francisco CA – Review

The Book of Mormon comedy musical is currently performing at Curran Theatre through the holiday season December 30, 2012. Robert Hurwitt reviewed the musical at SFGate.com. Here is the review:

“The Book of Mormon” made true believers out of the audience Wednesday when the national touring company of the Broadway blockbuster opened its SHN run at the Curran Theatre.

“South Park” creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone collaborated on the book, score and lyrics with “Avenue Q” co-writer Robert Lopez. The “Book of Mormon” lyrics drive the comedy more than their score, a serviceable melange of pop styles at the intersection of Sesame and 42nd streets. An Up With People ensemble enthusiasm sells almost every number in tandem with the buoyant, athletic choreography of Casey Nicholaw, who co-directed with Parker.

As performed by a dynamic cast – about the same size as that on Broadway (though music director Cian McCarthy’s sharp orchestra is considerably smaller) – the tale of squeaky-clean Mormon missionaries in an AIDS-, warlord- and clitoridectomy-ravaged Ugandan village is a winning mix of outrageous satire and goodhearted sentiment poured into old forms.

Tall, thin, all-American Gavin Creel and short, pudgy, unkempt Jared Gertner are a perfectly matched odd couple as the newly graduated missionaries sent to join the Latter-day Saints’ mission in Uganda. Creel’s Elder Price is the fervent, self-anointed future leader – charmingly egocentric on “You and Me (But Mostly Me)” – who can’t believe he’s being sent to Africa instead of Orlando, and with this schlub as a partner, no less.

Parker, Lopez and Stone haven’t broken any fresh ground or created a work that points in new directions for the American musical. But they derive plenty of glorious entertainment from rehashing old forms.

The Book of Mormon At The Pantages – Review

The Book of Mormon is performing at Pantages Theatre – CA through November 25, 2012. Here is the review by Katie Buenneke (Theater Editor) at NeonTommy.com.

Ladies and gentlemen, if I had not just spent all my money on a ticket to see “The Book of Mormon” at the Pantages, I would wager you money that I enjoyed the aforementioned show less than you will, should you choose to see it.

This is not an attempt on my part to try and be a pretentious theater critic (goodness knows just my being a theater critic makes me more than pretentious enough already) or to be contrary for the sake of being contrary. It also doesn’t mean that I don’t think that people should see “The Book of Mormon.” It just means that I didn’t love it as much as most people probably will.

To preface, I should note that I saw the original production last summer and enjoyed it immensely. The show, which follows two young Mormons (Gavin Creel and Jared Gertner) on their mission to Uganda, is a funny one—as is expected from a show written by the creators of “South Park,” Trey Parker and Matt Stone, and the composer of “Avenue Q,” Bobby Lopez. “The Book of Mormon,” like its creators’ previous works, does not shy away from crassness, and preaches a very twenty-first century brand of humor, chock full of pop culture references and metatheatrical moments.

Unfortunately for me, though, the show did not hold up quite so well upon a second viewing. Perhaps it was because I already knew what all the jokes were—though there are some shows I’ve seen countless times, and still laugh at every joke. However, I suspect that this is another case like my second viewing “Newsies”—as I watched “The Book of Mormon,” I couldn’t help but feel that the cast’s energy was kind of down. Granted, this was their fourth out of five shows on this unusually hot weekend, but still, I got the impression that these professional actors were going through the motions (literally) more than anything else. Also distracting was the fact that many moments came off as a poorly-transcribed copy of the New York production.
