Eugene O'Neill Theatre | New York, New York
Fans of theatre entertainment are excited to hear that The Book of Mormon is performing in New York to perform at the fantastic Eugene O'Neill Theatre on Thursday 10th August 2023. What a lot of people nowadays cherish about Broadway Theater is that they are completely unique. A lot of Musicals can feel somewhat like a regular movie but with random songs just thrown in. Well stress no more, because The Book of Mormon is NOTHING like that. The musical numbers are more dynamic and perfectly reflect the characters seamlessly. They’re put into spectacular moments with cleverly written rhymes. So don't wait for your tickets – because this show has sold out across New York and the country. Reserve yourself a spot, because there's no greater act to see this August!
Robert Lopez accompanies South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone in a comedic tour de force that is filthy, offensive, and surprisingly heartwarming.
The famous fathers of South Park said that the story of the musical came about from their backgrounds growing up in Colorado where they became closely familiar with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and its members. They used their experience as well as their famous skill at weaving social commentary, comedy, and satire into a story that lampoons the feel-good inspirational musical formula while still staying true to its roots and messages.
The shock comic geniuses tell a story of two Latter-Day Saints missionaries who are on a mission to spread the word of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints to a remote Ugandan village. But what they discover is a remote world that is less concerned with faith and more concerned with HIV/AIDS, Female Genital Mutilation, and village warlords. From the very first song, “Hello!”, audiences are brought into a world with a lot of heart that shows that even in the middle of the absurd, you can find a well of compassion.
The Book of Mormon has received incredible praise for its plot, score, and performances, with Vogue magazine describing it as “…the surprise-sweetest thing you’ll see on Broadway this year, and quite possibly the funniest musical ever.” The New York Post reports that audience members were “sore from laughing so hard” calling it tuneful and funny. Ben Brantley of The New York Times has even compared it favorably to classic musicals “The King and I” and “The Sound of Music”, stating its ability to weave sunny tunes to dark topics and themes something close to a miracle.
This is your best opportunity to experience the incredible Book of Mormon live at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre in New York, New York on Thursday 10th August 2023!
