Prepare this fall! The missionaries of the Book of Mormon are coming at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre on Thursday 26th October 2023!

The plot chronicles the adventure of two Mormon proselytizers as they endeavor to share their faith with the residents of a small Ugandan community. Crafted by the creators of South Park, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, in addition to the record-breaking Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony recipient, Robert Lopez, the music is renowned for earning its very own Tony Award.
In response to appeals from actors to reexamine the representation of black characters in light of worries about racial justice, a couple of lyrics and aspects of the plot were somewhat modified back in 2021. Nevertheless, the themes of friendship, faith, and positivity, which surpass all religions, stay consistent throughout the show.
In their assessment, The New York Daily News portrays how The Book of Mormon is a show where you regularly find yourself laughing one minute and then uncover your mouth agape the next, finally tearing up and, finally, rooting for the primary singers. Writers Stone and Parker are infamous for their "take-no-prisoners, nothing-is-sacred technique to comedy."
Furthermore, Lopez exemplifies a skill for thumbing his nose at current conventions. As all three share credit for the book, songs, and words, this production can be described as "foolish, heartfelt, and extraordinarily impolite, while the score continually bright and shrewd keeps the scenes in this Book moving effortlessly.”
The Eugene O'Neill Theatre is considered one of the top locations for sought-after Broadway shows in all of New York! Visit the platform at New York for the optimal watching encounter of The Book of Mormon.
