The Book of Mormon is a hilarious new musical that pokes fun at Mormonism, religion in general, and musicals, as it follows two young Mormons on their ‘mission’. The show has been created by the writers of South Park (Trey Parker and Matt Stone), who mix humour, bad language, and some very ‘politically incorrect’ topics to deliver a risqué yet hilarious show.
The Book of Mormon tells the story of a hopeful eager young ‘elder’ on his way to begin his Mormon duties, and spread the word of the book. When he finds himself paired with a seemingly unworthy companion and sent to the polar opposite of his dream location, a remote village in northern Uganda, both his faith and his sanity are tested.
Naïve and optimistic, the two missionaries try to share the Book of Mormon, one of their scriptures—which only one of them knows very well—but have trouble connecting with the locals, who are threatened by a brutal warlord, and who are more worried about war, famine, poverty, and AIDS than about religion.
After nearly seven years of development, the show opened to critical acclaim on Broadway in March 2011, and has since toured the US. The Book of Mormon has gained positive critical response and numerous theatre awards including nine Tony Awards, one of which was for Best Musical, and the Grammy Award for Best Musical Theatre Album.
Please be warned - “The Book of Mormon” is inappropriate, X-rated and uses language that your elderly aunt Betty would certainly get the soap bar out for, but the show is hilarious! Every moment keeps you smiling and just when you think it’s gone far enough, the show sprints past the line of social decency. It’s not only funny, it’s smart, and though packed with vulgarity, it has a strange but genuine heart.
