Love South Park? You'll adore The Book of Mormon!

It's hilarious, irreverent and very, very silly. The Book of Mormon was written by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, who created the popular adult cartoon series South Park, plus Robert Lopez who created the US stage hit Avenue Q. It marks Parker and Stone's Broadway debut… and what a debut it is!

This is the most critically acclaimed new musical for ages, and has won an impressive nine Tony awards: Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, Best Original Score, Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Role in a Musical, Best Scenic Design of a Musical, Best Lighting Design of a Musical, Best Sound Design of a Musical, Best Direction of a Musical and Best Orchestrations. It was also nominated for an outstanding six Outer Critics Circle Awards and twelve Drama Desk Awards, so comes with immaculate stage musical credentials.

The Book of Mormon - The story

In a superbly-written musical masterpiece of religious satire, the story reveals the journey of two Salt Lake City Mormons, Elder Price and Elder Cunningham, who are sent on an important mission to convert the people of Uganda to the Mormon religion. When they turn up in a small village, the natives greet them with hostility and as their beliefs and friendships are challenged, a completely hilarious musical comedy unfolds.

Lots of swearing plus sexual and offensive content

This isn't a musical for the faint hearted. Expect the full complement of wonderfully foul language, sexual content and crude stuff that could easily offend the easily offended! As such it's a show for grown- ups aged seventeen plus.

If you're a fan of razor-sharp scripting, beautiful sets and an excellent musical score, it's billed to be one of the hottest tickets in town. Sheer satirical magic.

Press Reviews

An unstoppable hit. Damnably clever and sharp. Daily Telegraph

It’s the hit of the year. Surprising, beguiling absurdity, and daring at every level. The Times

The most talked about show in London. A blast of often goofy, sometimes glorious musical comic delight. This show is the real deal. The Stage

I absolutely loved it. Seriously inspired and absolutely uproarious. The Independent

The Book of Mormon is viciously funny. Spirited and refreshing; joyous and even cuddly. Its defining feature is a filthy irreverence – an infatuation with making fun of everything, including itself. The Evening Standard

London Box Office customer

Funny, entertaining great fun

London Box Office customer

Hilarious and extremely well written!

Brilliant show! The acting is phenomenal and the storyline is so creative. My favourite part was the characters and their differing personalities. Great show!


London Box Office customer

Amazing, nothing compares

London Box Office customer

A must see show

London Box Office customer

Absolutely Hilarious

We are still singing the songs, no matter how inappropriate they are, weeks later. A brilliant production but one not for the easily offended. From the guys who brought you South Park is the only thing you need to know. Nothing is off limits, everything gets equal ridicule, the songs are catchy and hilarious and the story is a witty satire of more than just Mormonism.


London Box Office customer

Funny as hell

London Box Office customer

Amazing!

London Box Office customer

Unmissable

London Box Office customer

energetic and colourful

Lively show with colourful costumes. Adult humour.


London Box Office customer

Well...

This is nothing for the faint-hearted. Really below the belt, but also really laugh out loud. Totally awesome and fun theatre experience!


London Box Office customer

Crude - not for the faint hearted

Go in with an open mind, and leave your offend-able self at home! Its so far off from the reality of Mormonism, but very entertaining. Music was fun and the actors did a great job in their parts.


London Box Office customer

Outrageously funny!

London Box Office customer

Hilarious, good fun and doesn't take itself too seriously!

I love musicals but this was different as it didnt take itself seriously. Was lighthearted and hilarious. Expect the unexpected.


London Box Office customer

Irreverent but very funny!

Great fun, but lots of bad language and irreverence, so certainly wouldn't suit all! The staff in the theatre were absolutely fantastic, very polite and helpful. Really good customer service.


London Box Office customer

The most offensive thing that's made me laugh

London Box Office customer

Awesome!

London Box Office customer

London Box Office customer

best show I've ever seen

Hysterical show best I've seen, jaw droppingly shocking lyrics to some of the songs, if you are easily offended I suggest the show isn't for you. The shows creators are geniuses!


London Box Office customer

must see!

London Box Office customer

Hilarious

Not for the easily offended or closed mind; but if you like a bucket load of belly laughs this show is fantastic. Fast paced and funny throughout; and Elder Cunningham just steals the show!


London Box Office customer

colourful language and actions

overall liked the show however be aware that the show contains sexual actions and swearing if taking younger children. show would have been just as good if that content wasn't included but had more clever writing without resorting to what was included.


London Box Office customer

Wonderfully weird

Perhaps not for the faint hearted or deeply religious, Book of Mormon is a hilarious take on the modern day Mormon church. Brilliantly acted although missing some chemistry between the main characters. A musical delight well worth seeing for a few laughs and perhaps a few cringe worthy moments!!!!


London Box Office customer

Absolutely Hilarious

Absolutely Hilarious I was in tears with laughter at some points of the play However be careful some people might find some of the language offensive


London Box Office customer

Ridiculously hilarious and hilariously ridiculous!!

London Box Office customer

great laughs on a date!

London Box Office customer

Side splitting and a must see!

The whole musical was fantastic! So funny! What a treat to laugh so much! I would recommend this to adults only and not the sensitive religious type! Thank you for creating such a great show! we will be telling all we know to go and see it!


London Box Office customer

London Box Office customer

Funny

London Box Office customer

one of the best

one of the best thing i have seen, be it cinema, tv, or stage. Only criticism would be the sound. Sometimes the music was drowning out the voices. So on some songs, couldn't hear all the words. And trust me, the words are funny. Maybe it was to do with where I was sitting


London Box Office customer

Phenomenal, cannot recommend more highly!

Have not stopped raving about this show. Definitely not a show for kids of course, but would encourage anyone else to go and see this. The entire theatre was in stitches from start to finish and I was absolutely blown away by the cast, they were all fantastic.


London Box Office customer

A great evening. Lots of laughter.

London Box Office customer

Least funny show I have ever seen

I'm not offended in any way. Just simply found it quite the least funding thing I have eve watched. The story follows two naive young Utah Mormons, Elders Price and Cunningham, played by Gavin Creel and Jared Gertner, who travel to an Aids-ridden African village to convert the locals. Subtle it is not. One song, a spoof of the ditty Hakuna Matata, from Disney’s The Lion King, has the natives belting out an F-word strewn two-fingered salute to God which includes lines such as, ‘**** you, God’ and ‘**** you in the ****.’ Elsewhere, there is a blood-drinking warlord who believes in female circumcision and that raping babies can cure Aids. Later one of the Mormon evangelists persuades the locals the disease can, in fact, be eradicated by indulging in bestiality. I can attest it is, indeed, vile, offensive and potty-mouthed. Which might be entirely forgivable were it not also puerile, crass and — worst of all — not very funny. But it must be conceded that on the evidence of the hysterical reaction the majority of the audience when I attended, I am in the minority. It all depends on your definition of high comedy. I found it surreal sitting stony-faced while those around me dissolved into paroxysms of laughter over an African — who looked like he was straight out of Central Casting — shouting over and over: ‘I have maggots in my scrotum’.


London Box Office customer

No lull all LOL

Book of Mormon is awesome. If you enjoyed The Producers you'll love this one even more. Witty, clever and so so funny; the cast were incredible and seemed to be having a ball as much as the audience. It romped along at such a pace there was never any time to be even the slightest bit bored as can sometimes happen with productions of this type. A total blast. Well done all.


London Box Office customer

Just hilarious!

You can't tell from the title that you will get hooked within the first song, start laughing and barely stop until it's done. It's a masterful story, sometimes touching on very provocative topics, but done in such a funny way. Definitely and 18+ musical though as some of the language and gestures can be a bit colourful. I've seen it more than once and still find it fabulous.


London Box Office customer

Smart, Brilliant and Fun

London Box Office customer

Creative, fun, unpredictable

Loved the show, funny, could realate to circumstances, great caricatures.

Review of The Book of Mormon

16 Jun 2014 in Reviews

The Book of Mormon You would think that after being on the West End for over a year the buzz about The Book of Mormon would have died down a bit. No one expected it to disappear entirely, but equally no one expected it to still be the hottest ticket in town. Well, one of the hottest. After all, Miss Saigon has just opened to record-breaking sales with £4.4m in one day vs. £2.1m for Mormon. But still, on a sunny Wednesday evening in June I was finally allowed into the magical world that currently inhabits the Prince of Wales theatre for the privilege of seeing this production in the flesh thanks to London Box Office. And yes, it was worth spending one of the very few sunny evenings that London has seen sat in a darkened theatre!
