One of my best friends just recently returned from a trip to New York City, and he explained to me that the highlight of his tenure there was going to see a Broadway showing of the Book of Mormon. This anecdote greatly perked my interest, because usually my friend is a rigid critic of most anything he encounters. I hadn’t previously heard much about the musical besides the fact that its creator’s, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, were also the creators of the show South Park. So I decided that the next time I was in the Big Apple I’d have to definitely go see the performance.
After viewing the satire, I can safely say that the Book of Mormon is one of the most worthwhile experiences I’ve had in a long time! It was absolutely one of the most hilarious spectacles I have ever seen. The plot was surprisingly well constructed and it had me totally engaged the entire way through. The musical is a religious satire, so the pious might not be interested. However if you can accept the performance as a light-hearted comedic entertainment, then you should love the Book of Mormon.
The two lead actors were absolutely phenomenal, but truly the entire cast produced a flawless performance. You could really tell that everyone had their parts down impeccably.
My wife and I were positioned to the left side of the theatre, and for the most part we had an excellent view of everything. The theatre wasn’t gigantic, so the intimate atmosphere made the performance that much more lively.
The musical itself describes the tale of two youthful missionaries during their mission to a village in Uganda. When they arrive, they are confronted with realities that they did not expect. The musical details what occurs when the two naïve missionaries encounter these ‘realities’. While this might sound uncomedic, you wouldn’t believe the hilarity that ensues!
I certainly recommend the Book of Mormon to anyone that is looking for a great round of laughs. The story, acting, and entertainment is definitely worthwhile!
The Book of Mormon will be playing at the Pantages Theater in Los Angeles from Sept 5th – Nov 25th. We have The Book of Mormon Tickets for all dates of the run.

South Park lovers rejoice! The latest innovation from the genius and brains behind the absolutely deplorable and un-p.c. trademark cartoon has brought to life the hottest Broadway show yet. The Book of Mormon, like most good theatrical pieces, is an entirely satirical point of view on religion as a whole and uses the Book of Mormon as a vehicle for which to demonstrate. Two young and earnest missionaries are sent off to Africa to a remote and war-torn village, impoverished and famished and battling an AIDS epidemic where they are attempting to spread The Book of Mormon seemingly in vain. One of the missionaries does not even know the Book of Mormon very well. The handsome and vain and ever-popular Elder Price is paired up with the chubby, insecure and not-so-pleasant Elder Cunningham. After much praying to be sent to Orlando, FL for his two-year mission, Price is sure that he has a great destiny waiting for him while the friend-less Cunningham is just happy to have what he considers his new best friend. The Book of Mormon takes the odd duo through quite the laughable journey. And of course no good story is told without the true heartwarming core at its foundation.
The Book of Mormon features six main characters. Since its 2011 Broadway debut, the Book of Mormon has been making waves. It has won nine Tony Awards and a Grammy for Best Musical Theatre Album. When the original Book of Mormon album was released in May 2011 it became the highest-charting Broadway album released in over four decades and hit its peak at No. 3 on the Billboard charts. The Book of Mormon was seven years in development for Trey Parker and Matt Stone, who teamed up with Avenue Q’s very own Robert Lopez. So far the Book of Mormon has debuted on Broadway as an original Broadway production. The Book of Mormon already has plans for the 2012 US Tour, a 2012 Chicago Tour and a 2012 London Tour. As a part of the 2012 U.S. Tour, the Book of Mormon has big plans for the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood, CA. From September 5th to November 25th 2012 The Book of Mormon Pantages Theatre tickets will be the hottest theatre tickets on the market.
