Eugene O'Neill Theatre | New York, New York
Book of Mormon, co-written by South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker, is coming to the fan favorite Eugene O'Neill Theatre in New York City, New York on Sunday 7th August 2022. This comedy-musical has been described as “filthy, offensive, and sweet” by Vogue Magazine since its story of two Latter-Day Saints missionaries and their quest to preach the faith to a remote Ugandan Village shows real characters rather than cariactures. From the first song “Hello!” to the closing musical number, audiences will laugh, smile, and feel enriched by this surprisingly moving tale. But don’t just take our word for it, when audiences keep coming back for more, even after their initial opening run in 2011.

"Hasa Diga Eebowai” meaning Fuck you, God. This is how our two budding missionaries are greeted by the villagers they have come to save, which as it happens is right after they are robbed by soldiers of the local warlord, General Butt-Fucking Naked! The devout, supercilious missionary-to-be Elder Kevin Price and the insecure Elder Arnold Cunningham, a compulsive liar, are challenged by the lack of interest from the locals, who are distracted by more pressing issues such as HIV/AIDS, famine, female genital mutilation, and oppression from the village warlords. All in a day’s work for these men of God, broadway.com calls it “Sacrilege and sanctity, and a generous helping of potty-mouth humour, blend seamlessly in this show that markets itself as “God’s favourite musical.” Brought to you by the creators of South Park. The book of Mormon will have you crying with laughter, as it weaves Joseph Smith scripture with outlandish science fiction and fantasy, combining Hobbits and Star Wars with a dash of Star Trek and a small green frog. Will Price and Cunningham be able to save the village when the murderous General comes for his mutilated female genitals?
