It's rare for a show to cause such a stir. But when this production hit the Broadway stage in 2010 a flock of often-hard-to-please reviewers gave it an immediate and enthusiastic thumbs-up. It's rude, irreverent and definitely NOT for the easily offended. Introducing The Book of Mormon, which has made the long-rumoured transfer to London's West End at last!
