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

Brilliant show in every respect

Very funny. Great script and plot. Terrific singing and dancing. High energy from start to finish. However - very rude language, so not suitable for children or easily offended people with strong religious beliefs. But for everyone else, a truly wonderful experience!


London Box Office customer

super thanks for ask8ng

London Box Office customer

Racist and unrefined

Unfortunately the great acting, singing and general performance was completely out shadowed by really sloppy and cheap racist jokes and songs which made me want to leave immediately. For reasons unknown the entire show laughed hard at these stereotypes and and offensive jokes. No contribution of any finesse from the authors, who could have easily serving the jokes with critique and satire rather than white mans ignorance and slapstick "humor". If this show should have any warning it should be "Warning: show entirely based on racism" rather than "Not suitable for children". How an entire room could laugh hard at such jokes I thought mankind left after slavery is beyond me.


London Box Office customer

First half dull, second half more than made up

London Box Office customer

Creative, and surprising

Not for the easily shocked or offended! Wonderful bit of non-PC entertainment, full of laughs and adult humor.


London Box Office customer

Everyone should see this !

London Box Office customer

Funny musical but not for the easily offended!

Show was true to life in scenes relating to some religious groups. Singing was good, heard most from our seats although some words were-mumbled! Some people in the audience in front of us were offended and they walked out. However being in a group with friends stuck with the show, but I did find the use of bad language and sexual words too much not always in good taste. Only my opinion but be aware.


London Box Office customer

Great fun a brilliant night out

This is a great show. The music and songs are very clever and the cast give a very enthusiastic performance. Not for those who may be easily offended by bad language but we thoroughly enjoyed it.


London Box Office customer

Hilarious

London Box Office customer

slightly disappointed

I guess I had expected too much, based on previous revues I had read, but I found the plot a little uninteresting and the music, while well performed, did not excite me. There was not one song that I found myself humming after the show. I also found the crude depictions of sexual acts both unnecessary and unsettling. On the other hand, the leading actors played and sang well and the overall production was very good.


London Box Office customer

Much funnier than I thought it would be

I wasn't sure how this show would be but I was very pleasantly surprised. It was extremely well performed with a huge amount of enthusiasm by all. It was much funnier than I expected and not as disrespectful to the Mormons as I had presumed it could be. Altogether a really good, entertaining show which I would recommend to everyone..


London Box Office customer

Funniest show I have seen in the West end in years and years. I laughed from beginning to end. Performers were outstanding.


London Box Office customer

Just hilarious

London Box Office customer

Entertaining

London Box Office customer

Cheesy crudeness

Unless you've been living under a rock, this show isn't as shocking as some make it out. Despite the ultra cheesy acting, most of the jokes were funny but I think it could be taken further in places.


London Box Office customer

Naughty but nice

Nicely shocking resulting in a naughty giggle


London Box Office customer

Hilarious adult humour

London Box Office customer

Poor

It was self indulgent rubbish


London Box Office customer

Definitely worth watching if you like to laugh.

London Box Office customer

Hysterical

London Box Office customer

Colourful and fun. Worth seeing.

London Box Office customer

Delighfully bonkers. Unmissable!

Saw for the 2nd time. Liked it even more this time. Smiled the whole way through. Brilliant songs, hilarious lyrics and a totally committed young cast.


London Box Office customer

Laugh out load funny

Not for the deeply religious!


London Box Office customer

A great comedy poised at the edge of an abyss of rectitude but just avoids the plunge. It tells the harsh truth in a delightful way,

London Box Office customer

Spectacular

Hands down the best theatre experience weve had!


London Box Office customer

Intelligent and well paced story

A great show that lampoons religious beliefs in general but intelligent enough make a point through humour without the need to be sarcastic or mean spirited. A smart, funny show with a great cast.


London Box Office customer

FANTASTIC. One of the best shows I have ever seen. I could go back again tonight.

London Box Office customer

highly recommended!

London Box Office customer

Very Funny

London Box Office customer

Hilarious but not for the faint hearted!

A comedy full of satire and hilarious moments addressing some hard hitting issues in a comical way. Not for the faint hearted or easily offended. Fabulous cast full of talented and entertaining people.


London Box Office customer

Lives up to expectations!

If you like the TV shows - Family Guy, American Dad - then you're in for a treat!


London Box Office customer

Irreverently fun comedy musical

Not for the easily offended or pious, this was a fun musical with many laugh-out-loud moments. The music and choreography was tight and diction clear.


London Box Office customer

Very bad taste

I think the music and choreography was fantastic however I really don’t think the main line of F... God is not acceptable. I’m not religious but I think offensive entertainment is not acceptable. Talk of F.... baby is also unacceptable If this is what is now considered as great entertainment then no wonder we have so many problems in the world


London Box Office customer

Wonderful!

I've enjoyed every minute at the show!


London Box Office customer

LOL all show long!

My best friend invited me as a birthday gift: I didn't know what to expect, only knew it was a popular play. Well, it was a big out laughing out loud southpark in a musical format, total nonsense and actually a true life changer: believe in yourself and be happy! I felt much happier after the show, so book your tickets, sit back and enjoy!


London Box Office customer

Was amazed at how fantastic this production was!

London Box Office customer

Very funny

London Box Office customer

London Box Office customer

Great show for the open minded

London Box Office customer

Amazingly hilarious. A must see!

London Box Office customer

Fantastic Show!

An amazing show which had us both in stitches the whole show. It was also very cleverly curated with a deeper and undermining meaning of how things can get taken out of context. Great production, theatre and staff!


London Box Office customer

BEST SHOW EVER

Really a great show, I don't even like musicals but I loved it.


London Box Office customer

Fantastically hilarious!

London Box Office customer

Bonkers

London Box Office customer

Must miss poor show!

Weak storyline. Unnecessarily crude for weak plot and message. Disappointing when expecting much better based on reviews and ratings.


London Box Office customer

hilarious

the theatre audience had a good vibe which possibly fed off the energy of the cast


London Box Office customer

Lived up to every rumor

Amazing show. For those with a sense of humor. Its not a family show but I came with mine and everyone loved it.


London Box Office customer

Hilarious

London Box Office customer

Lived up to hype and then some!

London Box Office customer

Amazing - smart and fun

London Box Office customer

Dreadful

What is the point of this show? I was very disappointed and do not understand why it's so popular. The humour was there in places but there were very few good things about the story.


London Box Office customer

Great Show

I saw the show yesterday with my husband. It was fantastic. Great acting, super dancing and overall amazing performance. Highly recommended !!!


London Box Office customer

Great

Superb


London Box Office customer

Elder Cunningham needs a rest

Unfortunately elder Cunningham’s voice was hoarse that day


London Box Office customer

A must see!

London Box Office customer

deep but funny (as well as serious)

London Box Office customer

Very funny

London Box Office customer

Amazing

If you aren't easily offended this will be one of the best shows you will ever see! Laughs from start to finish.


London Box Office customer

Funny and brilliant

Great fun


London Box Office customer

Hilarious from beginning to end!

From the opening number through til the end, this show is brilliantly written and executed. You don't need to know anything about the Mormon religion to enjoy it, you'll laugh out loud throughout regardless. However, if you have even the slightest knowledge about the premise of the religion, you'll pick up on little innuendos & enjoy it that much more.


London Box Office customer

Great to have a good laugh with no political correctness.


London Box Office customer

Fantastic

This was my first show and I loved it! The singing and dancing was superb. The comedy was brilliant! I was in tears of laughter, there are so many jokes here and there throughout that could be easily missed first time around, I would definitely see this play again!


London Box Office customer

Very risqué

London Box Office customer

Brilliant, funny, my face ached with laughing so much !!


London Box Office customer

For the iconoclasts

Takes a big stick to religious belief without being over-the-top cruel. Energetic and accomplished singing and acting brought the message home.


London Box Office customer

Musical awesome, clever and reverant

Really enjoyed the music and Witt.. taking the mickey out of religion.


London Box Office customer

Hilariously entertaining!

We are a couple visiting London for the 1st time. We booked online a day before the show for The Book of Mormon. It was pricey but it was our last day in London to see a theater show. There were 6 remaining seats. I chose the seats in the stalls M38-39. They are decent seats because we don't have to starin our necks while watching the 2.5 hr long show including a mid break. My husband and I kept laughing. It is really a must see show. All the actors fit their roles. You have my respect guys!!! Cheers!!!


London Box Office customer

So fun

London Box Office customer

Absolutely awesome

London Box Office customer

must see

Clever, funny, high energy. Not recommended for those easily offended.


London Box Office customer

Wow - what a show

I took my mum... there were times when I thought I'd regret it,,, but it was the funniest show we've seen - amazing


London Box Office customer

Confronting, thought provoking and entertaining


London Box Office customer

Very funny, very irreverent

Really funny. Great for the non-religious and un-pc


London Box Office customer

Just so good

Wonderful acting, great music. Hilarious.


London Box Office customer

Interesting and slightly provocative

My niece, African, found it uncomfortable to watch it all; felt some people might leave the theatre with more ignorance about Africa and it's nations. My nephew had a different view, he saw the wit and fun sides of the show- so did I !! But enjoyed listening to their arguments after the show.


London Box Office customer

Great fun

Very good evening. Hilarious.


London Box Office customer

Highly Enjoyable

Not knowing much about the Book of Mormon story line going to the performance, we were taken by surprise by the original and unpredictable story line. The music and theatrical performance were spectacular and made for a throughly enjoyable evening!

Review of The Book of Mormon

16 Jun 2014 by Daniel Perks 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!
