About The Book Of Mormon:The Book of Mormon is a theatrical production that is sure to be loved by some people, while offending others that are religious. But nonetheless, this religious satire on Mormonism will make any objective person laugh out loud. The music was co-created by Matt Stone and Trey Parker, the same two men who created the popular animated television comedy “South Park.” This musical story is about two youthful missionaries of the Mormon faith from Salt Lake City that are sent to an isolated village in the northern region of Uganda. When they arrive in Uganda, they come across a violent one-eyed warlord that is overpowering the local population with the threats of violence. The villagers lack their faith because many of them are overcome with AIDS and blame God for it. So, the missionaries have the idea that if they share their Mormon scripture with everyone then it will change their minds.
With all of the sad themes that are represented in this production, it is still portrayed in an entertaining and genuinely funny musical. Sometimes, Broadway productions try to force a laugh out of their audience. But with this production, they don’t have to force any laughter out of the audience. It is very hard to get affordable seats for this musical because they are usually all sold out. Later ticket buyers will have to go with the premium seats, which start at $299. But, at least you will have a closer seat to the live performances.
Even though there is foul language and blasphemous undertones in this play, it still has a magic to it that is as special as classics like “The King and I” or “The Sound of Music.” But since this musical touches about dark elements along with cheerful melodies, it could even be compared to Mel Brooks famous musical “The Producers.” No other Broadway show since “The Producers” has achieved so many laughs with so many dark undertones.
The Book of Mormon is great for any objective person who does not get offended by jokes that poke fun of religion or have foul language in them. For the traditional kind of Broadway attendees, they will likely be turned off by the humor in this play. It is written for a newer generation that believes in questioning faith and using graphic situations to gain a laugh. Overall, it is a play that everybody should see once because Mormonism is still a popular religion that is alive and well in America today.By:Chris Michaels.
