Energetic, Irreverent Book of Mormon – Reviewed By Lawrence Toppman,

The unique thing about “The Book of Mormon” is that the same adjectives can be used to praise or pan it.

It’s crass and juvenile, but crassly funny and joyously juvenile in a way that gets the middle-schooler inside many of us sniggering through it.

It’s shocking, if naughty language and gross concepts shock you. But what’s really shocking is the way this musical hews to the time-tested formula of an innocent hero – in this case, two innocent heroes – overcoming adversity, finding love and leaving us feeling better about the world.

what has made “Mormon” the hottest ticket on Broadway is its blend of emotion, snarkiness and pants-dropping boorishness, and the creators have calibrated that combination unusually well.

Elder Price (Mark Evans) and Elder Cunningham (Christopher John O’Neill) head to Uganda for their two-year mission to introduce Africans to the church. The inhabitants of their district worry too much about famine, genital mutilation of their daughters and a warlord who shoots people point-blank to care much about promises of salvation.

Then Cunningham, a chronic slacker with a bizarre imagination, woos them with a theology that incorporates AIDS cures, Hobbits, “Star Trek” and “Star Wars” myths. They start to come around, asking for baptism, until the warlord (whose name can never appear in this paper) gets annoyed.

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.

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 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 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

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.
