After knocking out audiences on Broadway and receiving a raft of Tony and Olivier Awards (oh, and a Grammy for the soundtrack), The Book of Mormon has arrived at the West End.
Comedy duo Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the (slightly warped) brains behind the animated hit South Park, have joined forces again to pen this hilarious musical that manages to simultaneously be incredibly rude, potentially offensive and unexpectedly endearing.
The musical tells the story of two Salt Lake City Mormons sent as missionaries to Uganda. Hoping for a few baptisms and a couple of conversions they get instead some very harsh realities and a particularly unfriendly warlord. And, the darker things get, the funnier they get. This is very smart stuff, with lyrics that will have you weeping with laughter in the aisles and music by Avenue Q’s Robert Lopez that you’ll be humming in the shower for weeks. Targeting everything from religion to consumerism to musicals themselves, The Book of Mormon is a satirical tour de force.
Now calling London’s Prince of Wales Theatre home, The Book of Mormon’s staggering and well-deserved success make it a must-see. With tickets selling out fast, The Book of Mormon is set to make theatre history.
Whilst outrageously extreme it was excellently performed by all, laughed from start to finish
A great show to see if you’re a fan of the writers. It’s what you’d expect, very incorrect humour with an exceptional cast. I would have to say that the first at before the interval is brilliant, but sadly act two loses momentum and takes a dip after half time.
Good fun, slightly amusing, performances full of energy and at times clever, but just not quite for me. Maybe expectations were too high!
Fantastic show but let down by seating. Very cramped and claustrophobic at the back of stalls which were expensive seats.
I haven't laughed this much for a very long time. A real belly ache! If you are "sensitive" about religion or "racial stereo-types", don't go. For the rest of us, it's the best thing since The Life of Brian.
Great play. Very enjoyable with an amazing crew.
Witty, smart, professional, different. and loads of fun. Can recommend 100%.
Enjoyed from start to finish
very, very funny,
Shockingly funny with some amusing and catchy songs
Enjoyed the show.
Excellent night out - really funny and would definitely recommend
We loved the Book of Mormon! Even my son who doesn’t like musicals. Absolutely brilliant!
Hilarious, thoroughly enjoyed!! Worth every penny
This show was so funny I laughed all the way through. Great team.
This is a hard-hitting, brilliant piece of satire that has the balls to attack some of the real issues.
Very very good musical with alot of humor. Can recommend
Fantastically funny...loved every minute.
Simply wonderful. Did not disappoint. Amazingly talented cast and wonderfully witty script and score.
Excellent production in every way. Outstanding performances from everyone involved.
If you are looking for an amazing theatrical experience with a superb cast and unforgettable entertainment look no further. What?? You have booked already.. do it.
I left this performance feeling joyous, uplifted and energised! The actors were full of fun and energy. An open mind and a broad sense of humour is needed for the performance, not for the easily offended. If this is you, you will love the humour throughout this performance. Very edgy and contemporary.
Belly hurting funny. The best show I’ve seen!
Was a funny and unpredictable show!
The show was hilarious. Had a good time. Recommenced.
It was fabulous.
Outrageous. So Not PC, so refreshingly liberal. A joy to watch. Great acting, music and song. Highly recommend
It was AMAZING!
Excellent show, very entertaining. Loved the main character 'Arnold' - thought everyone was brilliant, but he shone. Had seats in Row B which was great given that I'm 4' 10"! So the seats were excellent. The music was amazing, as was the dancing. Would only not recommend if you're Mormon, Christian or have an aversion to bad language!
Amazing to watch. Funny from start to finish, all acting was on point with a funny storyline to go with! Will Definitely go again and would highly recommend.
Upon seeing this masterpiece of musical theatre something stirred within my partner, Upon arrival home she drop my trousers and vigorously began to perform fellatio on me. If musical theatre has this kind of affect on her we will be frequenting more often. Thank you book of Mormon for helping me drain my sack
Hilarious, delightful. You can have one of the best 2 hours in your life here.
A very fun to watch play with surprises turns of events. Recomendable
Funny and clever. Not for the easily offended. Great show would watch again.
Fun, hilarious, great casting!
Single most hilarious thing I have ever witnessed
I wanted to be amused and I really was! Went for my birthday and I’m still raving about it! The performance was totally full and I can see why it sells out so quick. Don’t go if you’re easily offended - if you’ve got a sense of humour and don’t mind humour close to the bone you’ll love it! Such a great cast! Well done all!
This show was very funny and very irreverent. It should have a health warning for true believers who I feel could easily be offended. I loved it.
Lives up to the hype. So funny. Very clever. Brilliant music. Great cast. Tried to find fault and failed. Go and see it!
Such a great show! Very talented cast, beautiful music, and had me laughing from start to finish. Can't wait to see it again!
We had a good time. Great musical and nice theater.
Believe the hype. We saw this show last night. Amazing performances, lighting... everything was just awesome. Go even if you're easily offended 😉
My third time here. Just as good as the previous two. Actors were incredible, especially Elder Cunningham, hilarious performance.
Liked every bit of it! Loved it so much that I booked tickets right after for when my family is visiting!
I’ve never laughed so hard at a musical in my life!
Fabulously irreverent. Laughed from beginning to end. Should be obtainable on the N.H.S.
Went with my friend have done a lot of the shows really enjoyed the book of Mormons as different don’t go if easily offended
I knew this show was good but I had no idea how brilliant it was. I stayed sat in my seat til the very end because I wanted more. I want to see it again. Great energy, music was genius and atmosphere was buzzing.
Great fun and rewinding after a heavy day at work! Absolutely loved it, Elder Cunningham was hilarious! Very jokey and definitely not for snowflakes!!
