Eugene O'Neill Theatre | New York, New York
No visit to New York is complete without visiting the Eugene O'Neill Theatre, especially on Tuesday 26th March 2024 when The Book of Mormon graces the stage. The Book of Mormon follows the story of two missionaries who are sent from Salt Lake City to teach in a remote Ugandan village. Written by Stone, Parker and Avenue Q's co-creator Robert Lopez, the performance is directed by Parker and Casey Nicholaw. The Broadway musical won nine Tony awards last year! The only spot in New York that is absolutely ideal for the phenomenal Book of Mormon, and you will soon see why when you join guests this Tuesday.
"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 weeping 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? Grab your tickets and come and watch The Book of Mormon at Eugene O'Neill Theatre to find out!
