Book of Mormon show is complex, multi-layered, sweet, hilarious, and brilliant – Reviewed By Manning Harris,

Winner of nine 2011 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Vogue Magazine called the show “the filthiest, most offensive, and—surprise—sweetest thing you’ll see on Broadway this year, and quite possibly the funniest musical ever.” TV’s Jon Stewart said, “It’s so good it makes me angry.”

Two young men, Elder Price (Mark Evans) and Elder Cunningham (Christopher John O’Neill) are sent out on their two-year mission. Elder Price hopes it will be his favorite spot of earth: Orlando—home of Disneyworld! But no, it’s Uganda, Africa. Oops. Neither was expecting that; Elder Price keeps his indomitable enthusiasm. But the goofy Elder Cunningham has yet to even read the Book. Another oops. And he makes things up—to help people. Isn’t that the essence of true religion?

They soon find themselves in a remote village where famine, poverty, and AIDS run rampant. The villagers are not in the mood to be taught some strange religion. What are our missionaries to do, and how on earth can you make a musical comedy from such a situation?

That is the genius of “The Book of Mormon” and its creators: Trey Parker, Robert Lopez, and Matt Stone. They wrote the book, music, and lyrics. You may recognize their names. Does “South Park” and “Avenue Q” (Lopez) ring any bells?

The brilliant choreography is by Casey Nicholaw; the direction by Trey Parker and Mr. Nicholaw. Other cast standouts are Samantha Marie Ware, Ron Bohmer, Grey Henson, Stanley Wayne Mathis, Derrick Williams, and Colin Bradbury.

‘Outstanding – Starkie!’, The Book of Mormon is a must-see show – Reviewed By Eugene Lee,

If you are humor-impaired, a die-hard theologically devout Mormon (or, frankly any other religion), bringing young (16 or younger) children, are easily offended by explicit language, or are a plain old stick-in-the-mud, then I highly recommend you do NOT see The Book of Mormon. For all the rest of you – this is a must-see show.

I was curious and eager to see this show at the Orpheum Theatre in San Francisco the night before Thanksgiving, having had the good fortune to have seen the original production in New York City. From the opening curtain I knew we were in for a good night – the stage and space are noticeably larger than the smallish Eugene O’Neill theatre on Broadway – and the audience was vibrant, appreciative, and responsive.

For those of you not familiar with the show, the story centers on a pair of newly minted Mormon missionaries (Elder Price and Elder Cunningham) who, instead of being sent to Orlando (Elder Price’s lifelong dream) are sent to a remote village in Uganda. The entire show is dripping in sarcasm, poignantly clever lyrics, musical themes that pay homage (put not necessarily respect) to the traditions of Disney (Lion King is lampooned more than once), heavy metal (“Man Up”), and good old fashioned Broadway (“Turn It Off” is a classic tap routine,and “Orlando” is a loose musical parody of West Side Story’s “Maria”). The show is written by Trey Parker and Matt Stone of “South Park” fame and Robert Lopez (“Avenue Q” plus several Disney credits). The Wikipedia entry for the show has some great background information if you want more.

The Book of Mormon is a must-see show.

From the very opening number (“Hello”) to the big closing Finale, we are taken on a journey that is at times intricate and clever (“Hello”), bawdy and shocking (“Hasa Diga Eebowai” and “Spooky Mormon Hell Dream”), silly and sarcastic (“Orlando”), beautiful and ironic (“I Am Here for You”, “I Believe”), or just plain entertaining (“Turn it Off”).

The Book of Mormon Tampa Review – Book of Mormon Creates Some Musical Magic

Book of Mormon creates some musical magic – Reviewed by Jay Handelman via

All it takes is a door chime and a brightly sung “Hello,” to win over the audience in the national tour of “The Book of Mormon.”

That’s the opening number performed by a group of young and overeager Mormon missionaries at work in this charming and slightly subversive musical at the Straz Center.

Considering it comes from “South Park” creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone and “Avenue Q” co-creator Robert Lopez, you might expect it to be more offensive than it is. Some of the jokes are more shocking than funny in the “I can’t believe they said that” mode.

That’s true during the ebullient “Hasa Diga Eebowai,” sung by some Ugandan villagers to the two newest missionaries, Elders Price and Cunningham, who have come to convert them. Most of the villagers are dealing with AIDS and poverty and are controlled by a wicked warlord who wants to circumcise all the women (see, it’s not your typical musical comedy fare).

The song, performed with the spirit of “Hakuna Matata,” is the villagers’ way of trying to wipe away the tragedy in their lives. It sounds fun, though the actual translation is far darker and can’t be published here.

The cast is strong throughout, from Samantha Marie Ware as the young and innocent Nabulungi and Stanley Wayne Mathis as her concerned father, Mafala, to Grey Henson as the leader of the Ugandan missionaries.

The show is staged on a fun, funny and colorful set by Scott Pask that offers a dark yet Disney-fied version of the world, nicely fitted with Ann Roth’s costumes and Brian MacDevitt’s lighting.

But there’s so much joy that you can’t help but feeling uplifted by the final bows.

The Book of Mormon is most undoubtedly cheeky and pushes the boundaries with content and profanity – Reviewed By Suzanne Cordeiro,

Book of Mormon in Austin
Book of Mormon in Bass Concert Hall

The Book of Mormon is most undoubtedly cheeky and pushes the boundaries with content and profanity. It can’t be overlooked that the score, production, acting, and vocal talent is brilliant, and that there is something utterly original about this musical and its controversial content. Unlike other productions, The Book of Mormon does not depend on any one principal cast member to carry the weight in that the talent is amazingly distributed amongst all of the performers. Whether offended or entertained, said it well with “The perfect Broadway musical. Behold The Book of Mormon. An exhilarating Broadway musical at once revolutionary and classic, hilarious and humane, funny and obscene, uncompromising in production standards and unafraid of just about anything. This is what 21st century Broadway can be. If Broadway has the balls. Lord knows, The Book of Mormon does…”

The Book of Mormon musical is a comic sensibility – Reviewed via

The national tour of the winner of nine 2011 Tony Awards now at the Lexus Broadway Series was virtually sold out as soon as tickets went on sale. Fans of the creators, South Park’s Trey Parker and Matt Stone and Avenue Q’s Robert Lopez, know what to expect – a comic sensibility that holds nothing sacred with a serious streak buried deep within.

The Book of Mormon follows a pair of young missionaries sent out from theirSalt Lake City training center. Elder Price (Mark Evans) is a hotshot from whom great things are expected. He’s appalled by both his partner, Elder Cunningham (Christopher John O’Neill), and his destination,Uganda. Cunningham is a needy ne’er-do-well who tells lies when he’s under pressure, and Price was really hoping to be sent toOrlando. His religion is, well, Disney-fied.

Africa is a rude shock. The people in the village are deeply angry at the very idea of God because they suffer from hunger, AIDS, parasites in unmentionable places and a cruel warlord who wants to sexually disfigure all the women. The missionaries already in place, led by a fellow who brags about ignoring his homosexual impulses, haven’t baptized a single convert.

The Book of Mormon surpasses another of its lucrative models, The Producers, in that it doesn’t depend on its original stars for laughs. The Tony nominees who played Price and Cunningham have long since departed to star in extremely funny, if short-lived, sitcoms. Their touring counterparts have made the show their own. Evans adds a bit of macho edge to his self-involvement. You’d think that O’Neill was retaining bits of characterization from a former run as the nerdy genius in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, but in fact this is the young comic’s theatrical debut.

The Book of Mormon Tour Review – Sizzles at the Fabulous Fox Theatre

The Book of Mormon Musical currently playing at Fabulous Fox Theatre-St. Louis MO for a 2-week run from February 19 to March 03, 2013. The Book of Mormon musical reviewed by Judith Newmark – Here is the review:

The language — foul, blasphemous and very smart — delivers rhymes you can’t believe you’re hearing. The gestures, vulgar and explicit, inform some of the brightest dances you’ve ever seen.

And here’s the built-in conundrum: Neither part would work without the other.

Get rid of the sunshine, and you’d slog through pure filth. Get rid of the filth, and you’d have another meaningless, feel-good pageant.

But bind them together and you have a dazzling musical, a show that draws its considerable energy from the push-pull of pleasure and shame it manages to provoke time after time after time.

If those credits mean nothing to you, you probably don’t belong at “The Book of Mormon.” If they do, it’s enough to tell you whether or not you want to see this epic about hapless Mormon missionaries in Uganda, facing such tiny obstacles as AIDS, a murderous warlord and the genital mutilation of women.

Yes. In an absolutely hilarious, fast-paced musical comedy.

“The Book of Mormon” is so thoroughly an ensemble piece that it almost seems silly to single out individual performers. We get to enjoy first-class work from Mark Evans as a confident missionary who expects great things of himself, and Christopher John O’Neill as his mission partner, a nerdy science-fiction fan.

Best of all, there’s a big climax telling the story of Mormon leader Joseph Smith. It blends African dance vernacular with the “Small House of Uncle Thomas” from the “King and I,” and as far as I’m concerned it could have lasted all night.

There’s more. “I Am Africa,” sung by the white missionaries, skewers every self-congratulatory anthem you’ve ever heard. But the brightest number is also the least offensive, a tap-dance tribute to the powers of psychological repression called “Turn It Off.”

The Book of Mormon at The Minneapolis Orpheum Theatre – Review

The Book of Mormon Musical Tour currently Stops in Minneapolis, MN for 2-week run. Book of Mormon will be performing at the Orpheum Theatre MN through February 17, 2013. The Book of Mormon musical play at Orpheum Theater reviewed by Chris Hewitt – Here is the review:

It’s a terrific show that is almost entirely sold out. On second viewing, what is most impressive about “Mormon” is that, after many years of productions that deconstruct the Broadway musical-comedy or shift it into musical-drama, this is a show that proves a traditional Broadway musical can still be great. Well, “traditional” except for a ton of raw language.

“Mormon” takes little pieces of many musicals — an opening number that could almost be in “Bye Bye Birdie,” a parody of “Hakuna Matata” from “Lion King,” the idea of two crazy kids who might just be in love from every show you’ve ever seen — and rearranges them into a production that reminds you there are few things in entertainment more thrilling than a musical comedy that works.

And does “Mormon” work. It’s not the most ambitious musical or the most trail-blazing, but there isn’t a single joke in it that doesn’t land. The dialogue is funny. The songs are funny. The choreography is funny. The costumes are funny. The sets are funny. The lighting cues are funny. Heck, even the ads placed in the program by the actual Mormon Church are funny.

“Mormon” is the most-laughs-per-minute musical comedy ever written because creators Trey Parker, Matt Stone and Robert Lopez haven’t allowed any dead spots. Even in the middle of moments that tug at our hearts, such as the yearning ballad “Sal Tlay Ka Siti,” “Mormon” keeps the jokes coming.

Virtually everyone who walks through the doors of the Orpheum will find themselves the target of jokes in “Mormon,” but the show never feels mean-spirited. There is a sweetness in Mark Evans’ Price and especially in Christopher John O’Neill’s Cunningham.

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 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.
