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.

The Book of Mormon (London) reviews
Hilarious - great singing and an overall wonderful performance. Religion is funny again!
This was the second visit to the Book of Mormon for me! It is throw your head back laughing funny (but I admit the humour is not for everyone!)
Excellent show very funny and professional
4th time in seeing the show. Each time is brilliant, laugh out loud show. Acting, singing & dancing - AMAZING
Fantastic! Seen many shows but this is the best! Hilariously funny and clever. They put their heart and soul into it. Prince if Wales theatre is lovely with plenty of legroom. Can you tell we loved it? Lol
Hilarious. Not for the prudish though as very crude. I have seen it before but had to take my partner and hes still raving about it so i dont expect this to be our last visit. Excellent cast.
Very good, the actors where brilliant. Very near the mark and not sure anyone with any sort of religion would like it. I thought it was great. Well done cast
Absolutely loved the show. We laughed all the way through. It's funny because it's true!
I generally hate musicals but The Book of Mormon was absolutely amazing. It was funny, clever and irreverent. The acting, dancing, singing and music accompaniment were all top-notch. I truly felt transported into the story and thoroughly enjoyed myself. I wish I could see it again!
Genuinely funny, fantastic cast, great music and dance. I thought I would like it but it exceeded my expectations - really excellent show.
Excellent venue, great show. If easily shocked stay away.
For someone not knowledgeable of what the show entailed I was so impressed with how unique it was. Such good fun and really funny but I can see why it’s not everyone’s cup of tea with the offensive humour.
This show omg I can't even put into words how good it is I loved it I want to go and see it again.
I got tickets for my boyfriend and myself for Christmas and beint big fans of South Park and knowing the theatre show was put together by Matt and Trey, we knew it was going to be full of risqué and hilarious jokes, and this show did not fail to please! We were in stitches and enjoyed every moment of the show. Highly recommend this show and will be doing so to my friends.
So hilarious and outrageous! However Fromtheboxoffice charged me an extra £10 per ticket, which I realised when we collected the paper tickets. Maybe best to find another supplier / go direct.
We laughed from start to finish! The songs were brilliant, the show was outstanding.
I hadn't heard much about this musical so didn't know what to expect. I really enjoyed it. Some parts were very funny, other parts you felt like you shouldn't find them funny but did anyway.
Wasn’t sure what I was going to see - gift and I hadn’t read any of the reviews. But what an evening! Had me in stitches for most of the play. Really enjoyed.... go see, really!!!!
Thoroughly enjoyed the performance. Very funny.
It's completely crude and outrageously funny, but the performance is outstanding! Full of energy and crying with laughter moments. A must see (if you don't take yourself too seriously)!
This wasn't on my radar but my daughter really wanted to see it and I^m really glad she made me come it was fabulous fun catchy songs great dance routines amazing performance.
Was very enjoyable! I highly recommend it for all to see ... I hope I get my money back for the extra tickets 🎫 I had The seat was filled up. Stacy Simon
Although I had heard so many good things about the Book of Mormon, I was still blown away by how funny, insightful, and entertaining it was! Definitely one to watch.
Completely took me by surprise; a mesmerising show of comic genius and slick performances. Would highly recommend. You have to see it to believe it.
Loved this show, highly entertaining. Very different to most theatre performances. If you're not easily offended and would like s laugh go see it!
Show was amazing. I did not expected to be that much fun and original!
Great performance. The only downside was that the seats I booked were unclear on the plan that they were at the end of the row, and I specifically got more expensive tickets on a different date so that I could be at the end of the row due to claustrophobia. This is why it is 4 star not 5 star.
Absolutely amazing show! what a great story and rib tickling humour! you could never tell what would happen next! definitely one to watch again!
Simply the funniest most entertaining thing I have ever seen. Every performance was brilliant and the staff at PoW theatre so helpful and attentive. Only downside my sides are still hurting from laughing so much🤣🤣🤣
The Book of Mormon is filled with hilarious characters, dialogue and jokes. As a young person, some jokes I didn’t understand, leaving me confused. However the whole show had a very good plot and was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
My 3rd visit - just hilarious
The show was brilliant! The acting was great, really funny from the opening scene and had the audience cracking up from start to finish! The performers voices were incredible and I absolutely loved the camp dance scenes! I am a South Park fan and it had the same cut throat, boarder line humour that the South Park creaters like to bring to the show, so I really enjoyed that! Great night out and I would highly recommend going to see this show!
If you like vile references to fucking babies and the over use of the word cunt then this is right up your street! Sadly for me it was not my thing!
Fantastic, witty , funny, offending everyone in good humour . Highly recommended.
Such a great show. Laughter from start to finish, great seats for the price as well!
We were a group of 12 with age ranges from 21-60. All really thought it was excellent and very funny.
i’m not a massive fan of the theatre but bought these tickets as a present for my boyfriend and am so glad I did because it was the best show i’ve ever seen, absolutely hilarious, very well done and the cast were all amazing! would 100% recommend.
Excellent music, very energetic performance. Very crude humour which might not suit everyone - I'd have a listen to a few of the songs before booking, I overheard a couple of people who didn't enjoy some of the language being used!
Shocking, funny but brilliant. If you’re easily offended this is not for you. Haven’t laughed so much in ages
Definitely worth seeing it. Leave your political correctness outside as you won't need it during this musical. Funny, irreverent, dark and delightful. I couldn't believe time has gone so quickly, I could watch it again and again.
I and my wife really enjoyed the show, highly entertaining and brilliantly offensive, belly laughs but also a very uncomfortable experience due to really bad seating layout and tall people in front of us both.
An enjoyable evening
Absolutely loved it! I am not usually someone who likes musicals but The Book of Mormon was funny, informative and amazing. Some of the songs and music were fantastic. Would recommend !
This was my second visit to Book of Mormon. It is such fun. A really good afternoon/evening out as long as you are not easily offended.
My wife and I went to see this after seeing the review ratings but quite honestly it made fun of some areas which are no-go for us, e.g. sex with a baby, cancer, gay people, Ugandan people, and so on. We are not prudish and are ok with bad language and sexual references, and the overall performances were otstanding. Some bits were very funny but we left feeling a little unhappy about much of it. I would not recommend this to anyone I know.
Was very disappointed in this production I found it totally banal, childishly rude ( I am no prude) swearing gratuitously. All this made the audience in general very happy but as a seasoned theatre goer - and as such open minded - I found it boring - dance routines very samey and uninteresting, and the music lacking in variety and musicality.
The funniest thing I have ever seen. Will be recommending to everyone!!!
