The storyline traces the journey of two Mormon missionaries as they work to share their faith with the residents of a small Ugandan community. Crafted by the authors of South Park, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, along with the record-breaking Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony winner, Robert Lopez, the musical score is renowned for receiving its very own Tony Award.
In reaction to requests from actors to reassess the depiction of black characters in light of issues about racial justice, a handful of lyrics and points of the plot were somewhat altered back in 2021. Nevertheless, the concepts of friendship, faith, and optimism, which go beyond all religious beliefs, remain unchanged during the performance.
In their evaluation, The New York Daily News portrays how The Book of Mormon is a performance where you frequently catch yourself laughing one moment and then uncover your mouth agape the subsequent, ultimately tearing up and, finally, rooting for the lead singers. Writers Stone and Parker are well-known for their "take-no-prisoners, nothing-is-sacred method to humor."
Additionally, Lopez demonstrates a knack for thumbing his nose at contemporary conventions. As all three share credit for the book, music, and words, this show can be labeled as "foolish, heartfelt, and extraordinarily crude, while the score consistently upbeat and intelligent keeps the acts in this Book turning seamlessly.”
The Eugene O'Neill Theatre is considered one of the top spots for sought-after Broadway shows in the whole New York! Come the performance area at New York for the ultimate watching experience of The Book of Mormon.
