The Book of Mormon is a comedy musical created of by Robert Lopez and South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone. The idea behind the tale came from Parker and Stones backgrounds growing up in Colorado where they grew intimately familiar with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and its members. The trio met and became friends at The University of Colorado Boulder where they later collaborated on a musical film, Cannibal! The Musical, which was also their first experience with movie musicals. This experience in comedy and satire led them to develop the iconic South Park television show for Comedy Central, which exploded in popularity for its biting, offensive, and often brutal brand of satire.
After establishing themselves as masters of shock-comedy and satire, it was only natural that the comedy duo and their friend, Robert Lopez, would get together to work on The Book of Mormon.
The story tells the tale of two Latter-Day Saints characters as they attempt to preach the faith to a remote Ugandan village only to come across apathy and disinterest since the village has more pressing concerns including; HIV/AIDS, famine, and oppression from village warlords.
Ever since it’s opening night, the play has found critical praise and favor, with many critics accepting its filthy, offensive nature and pointing out that there’s heart and depth to be found. The New York Post reports that audiences were “sore from laughing so hard” while other critics compare it to being a successful melding of dark elements to sunny melodies in a way that hasn’t happened since Mel Brooks adapted his film The Producers for the stage over a decade before.
The critical acclaim, audience reception, and heart has earned The Book of Mormon several awards including a 2011 Tony Award for Best Musical, a 2012 Grammy for Best Musical Theater Album, and a 2017 Helpmann Award for Best Musical. So this is your best opportunity to experience the incredible Book of Mormon live at the illustrious Eugene O'Neill Theatre in New York, New York on Wednesday 18th January 2023!
