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.
What a show, fantastically funny from start to finish. Laughed throughout - great acting from all cast members.. vocals were tremendous. Loved it and would highly recommend but def. to adult audience.
We went on my daughter recommendation and were not disappointed. We laughed fit the whole stunning performance
This show has everything. It’s very funny, the music and the story are brilliant, as are the actors. I loved the opening and closing song in particularly. I would recommend to everyone who hasn’t seen it. 10 out of 10.
My first experience seeing any form of musical and I was blown away. I would recommend this show to anyone
Cast and singing brilliant. The content meant to shock rather than provide humour.
Best thing I’ve seen since Matilda. Came out bubbling with energy. The cast are just amazing
Fantastic, I want to see it again
4th time seeing the show, probably not my last. Simply the most fun you can have in any theatre in London in my opinion. Hysterical, but also tons of heart, its perfect
The most funniest show I have ever seen! Was hysterics in the whole time. Highly recommend it.
Must see this again! So funny. The actors were outstanding.
A wonderful evening. Most un-pc sooooo refreshing. Good music, great cast, lovely stage setting, they all danced to perfection. Thank you for filling out hearts with fun.
From the moment the show started to the very end we laughed! Absolutely loved it!
A great show my wife and l enjoyed it and will tell all of our friends
This show was by far one of the best I have ever seen. I've not laughed so much in a long time. I could watch this every day and not tire of it!
Absolutely brilliant thoroughly enjoyed it and have recommended to friends and family it’s a must see. Congratulations to all the cast for making a most enjoyable evening.
I don't consider myself easily shocked and found this to be hilariously so
Excellent. Truly laugh-out-loud entertainment from the very start. Lovely theatre too.
It was very clear that there were a number of people that were expecting to see a heartwarming family tale about Joseph Smith, which thankfully those people /didn't/ get to see. If you go in expecting a live-action musical written by South Park's Parker & Stone and Avenue Q's Lopez then you're probably going to love this show.
Amazing show, very funny and so worth it!
Dark, offensive, brilliant!
Better than I expected - full on music and dance and funny.
It was unbelievable performance of the show. The singing, and stage presence of the actors was unparalleled. I was thoroughly blown away, and spent the entire night clutching my stomach in fits of laughter. I would recommend this show to absolutely anybody, as long as you are not a Mormon, (actually fog it yeah you can come too.)
Loved it. Laughed all the way through. Great great totally engaged Cast.
Very funny very clever
Amazing and funny
First half made me smile at times second half much better maybe because of all the hype my expectations were too high. Cast were very good but humour didn’t just cut it for me
Risqué, funny, inappropriate, wrong, politically incorrect and not for the easily offended. This show is a masterpiece! I loved it from start to finish! I wish I would watch it for the first time over again. The cast were brilliant, I couldn’t have asked for more. Thoroughly recommended...with caution!
Brilliant laugh a minuet great view
The play was well written and choreographed and the cast were fantastic. The singing and dancing was of high quality and the whole show was very entertaining in a non offensive way even though there were a few innuendoes and tongue in cheek situations! Excellent value, excellent venue with excellent staff and facilities.
This was by far the most funniest play I have seen to date. A couple years back, I met some mormon missionaries and watching this play just reminded me of them so much. I cried with laughter so hard throughout and the musical numbers were amazing. I have had them stuck in my head for the past week! Definitely worth going to see x
I liked it. It was very rude !!
A great evening. Slick changes of tempo, costume, scenery, singing and acting. Humorous show yet at the same time thought provoking. Theatre staff v helpful and sufficient in number to keep theatre goers organised, moving, seated and served. Pre performance bag check hopeless.
Didn’t realise that it was a musical when I booked, however, enjoyed the songs and dance. Excellent singers and actors, great scenic changes. Be aware, the dialogue and songs are a bit rude. Not a bad show, but not as hilarious as the critics suggest.
The show was amazing from start to finish. A lot of laughs had and a very well performed show. 20/10
Very funny from the first second. Far moving. Very talented cast. For broad minded persons only. A great show.
It was so easy, at a great value, to purchase tickets directly from the theatre via this site. No huge fees like in the US! Terrific Orchestra seats for ~ $70 LGBs. This is a hilarious show, as long as you are open to raunchy words and actions. It’s all done tongue in cheek, I suppose the Mormons won’t appreciate it, but we thoroughly enjoyed it ( we’re Catholic). Excellent ensemble, the three leads are all outstanding! Pre show we bought wine at the theatre at about a third of the cost than what they charge in NY! Highly recommend this show; easy to find theatre in the heart of Piccadilly area; a few blocks from this Metro stop. Post show we enjoyed terrific pastries & specialty tea at nearby Grand Cafe Concerto.
What a brilliant show. It’s hilariously funny and unite rude. I have family members who became Mormons I could really see one of them in Elder Price!! Would happily go to see it again.
This is the funniest show I have ever seen - I laughed and laughed all the way through. Brilliant performances all round - I love all the songs. I took my daughter as a present as I had already seen it but I enjoyed it again second time around as much as the first. Go see it you won't regret it!
Excellent. Funny. Fantastic dancing. Great songs. Well acted characters.
Great show very very funny and creative. Excellent performers. Would highly recommend.
Considering I didn't know anything of the Mormons I certainly do know, and when my door bell rings I won't be answering it! From beginning to end, a superb cast deliver a hilarious view of the book of Mormon. It just is really bloody funny. Don't consider getting a ticket, buy one as you won't regret it. Do yourself a favour and have a giggle on behalf of those wonderful god sharing folk!
I've wanted to see this musical for years, and turns out it was worth the wait. The acoustics were formidable, acting was superb and the atmosphere was exquisite. The staff was helpful, too.
We all loved the show but mainly me
Amazing....very funny....lovely production
Absolutely hilarious and gripping. Even my bf who can't sit through theatre without figiting or getting bored was howling with laughter throughout it!
Hilarious! Cried my eyes out. And the songs will get stuck in your head.
I thought the reviews were a bit much, a show can’t be THAT great right? WRONG! I was laughing until I was crying! Amazing. Yes. Again.
