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.
