  • The Book of Mormon: Stage Satire and Lampoonery at its Finest

    If you thought irreverent humour and the West End don't mix, you were very wrong. The Mormons are here to convert you, bursting onto the stage in 2013 and redefining how music and comedy can interact. The Book of Mormon is one for the hardest to offend; written by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, alongside musical maestro Robert Lopez, this show takes a sideswipe at the Mormon faith. Often sailing close to the wind but ultimately conveying the virtues of love and dedication. The story follows Elders Price and Cunningham as they journey to Uganda. In among the topics of AIDS and famine, the missionaries ultimately question religion. With the villagers indifferent to their teachings, the men are forced to look deep inside themselves, leading to one of the show's most iconic songs: I Believe. Does the mission cause them to leave the Church of Latter-Day Saints or have their eyes been opened to the true beauty of God. In true Parker and Stone style, we get the answer in the most brutally honest, satirically sharp way possible.

    Why The Book of Mormon Will Make You Believe

    Since it premiered on Broadway in 2011, The Book of Mormon has made waves in more ways than one. As well as having its soundtrack become the fastest-selling Broadway cast album on iTunes, the show has collected countless accolades. With 9 Tony Awards to honours from London's Evening Standard and an impressive 4 Oliviers, The Book of Mormon has won over many hard critics. Under any circumstances, this would be impressive. However, for a show that threatens to offend religious types with its comedic quips, it's even more of a feat. In fact, it's this willingness to shock that's made The Book of Mormon such a hit. While each joke and song has been carefully crafted so as not to directly attack any one person, the show isn't afraid to tackle the big issues head-on. As the cast sings about homosexuality, race and all manner of other touchy subjects, audiences are put firmly on the edges of their seats. However, with the score cleverly designed to be as catchy it is provocative, you can't help but be entertained by this cutting-edge production.

    Critics Converted by The Book of Mormon

    How do you lampoon an entire religion and not offend? Parker and Stone appear to have managed it with The Book of Mormon. In fact, even the critics are hot on this slick production: 'It's far, far cleverer, far kinder, far more nuanced than that, and one of its many surprises is that it sent an enraptured, ecstatic audience home with an odd sense of having come, somehow, to really like Mormons.' Euan Ferguson, The Guardian. 'The Book of Mormon merely flirts with blasphemy but there is something very winning about it.' Paul Taylor, The Independent.

  • The hilarious Broadway musical from South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone and Avenue Q co-creator Robert Lopez.

    The Book of Mormon was an instant sensation when it landed in the West End in 2013. A sell-out winner of most major Broadway awards in its first year, it is now playing at London's Prince of Wales Theatre just by Leicester Square.

    The Book of Mormon skillfully combines controversial humour with a traditional musical-theatre style, as well as a surprising amount of affection for its subject matter.

    Telling the story of two young and naive Mormon missionaries as they are sent out from Salt Lake City to find converts in Uganda, The Book of Mormon is a sharp, savage and satirical show, with an intelligent message, not to mention great songs and performances, and a fair amount of filthy humour.

    The Book of Mormon has won nine Tony Awards, a Grammy and four Olivier Awards, as well as almost universally glowing reviews, from critics and audiences alike.

What people are saying about The Book of Mormon

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant performance Absolute favourite!!! Would definitely watch it again. Couldn’t stop laughing!
Date published: 2020-03-21
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great show! Really funny! Recommend. We were about 15 minutes early and were held in (as ticket holders) the long queue around the side (lucky it wasn't raining or too cold). I needed the loo and the queue to the ladies on the second floor was really long, on getting towards the front, as the tannoy was announcing the count down to the start, it transpired that the loos were blocked and overflowing and the shout-out was 'don't flush', as ladies were continuing to use some of the blocked loos. I ran downstairs to the lowest level, panicking as we were at 2 minutes warning. En-route I called out to bar staff; they said that they were aware. My heart pounding I ran up two flights to rejoin my husband (who had bought bottles of coke - eek just what you need when the loos are blocked). I said to one of the ushers that I would probably miss the start, she said I wouldn't - but of course I was panicking, breathing heavily and as I said, heart racing as we tried to find our seats. Put me in a bad frame of mind. At the interval and with a whole bottle of coke on board the queue to all the ladies loos was again horrendous. I waited as long as I could but gave up, resulting in 'stomach' pain in the latter part of the show, and another run for the loo at the end of the show! Just as well the show is absolutely brilliant - however the venue could do better! (eg don't hold people outside when you are over half the loos down!).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My thoughts on book of mormons i went to this with my friend we meet in London twice a year and stay the weekend, and we see a show every-time. Unfortunately this is the worst show we have seen in years. Dont get me wrong i swear but the swearing in this was something else . I think my friend and i found it offensive and wouldn't recommend his show to anyone,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Book of Mormon I went to the event not knowing what to expect but it was my favourite play which I have seen this year

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not PC but a brilliantly written, performed and produced satire. My second time of seeing Book of Mormon and it is the funniest piece of theatre I have ever scene. It was as hilarious second time around as it was first. It is a clever and brilliantly, written piece of witty observational satire on life, belief systems and stereotyping which is full on. But it is much more than this. It is a visual and audible feast deliciously served up.The Character performances are incredible and the singing, dancing and choreography of the highest caliber. The scenery and costumes are colourful and sumptuous and it culminates in a story incredibly well told. It is not for the easily offended though I believe everyone should go to see it. Brilliant.
