"Hasa Diga Eebowai” meaning Fuck you, God. This is how our two up-and-coming 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 falling out of your seat, as it weaves Joseph Smith scripture with bizzare 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? Buy your tickets and come and watch The Book of Mormon at Eugene O'Neill Theatre to find out!
