5 Reasons You Must See The Book Of Mormon

Book Of Mormon I want to preface this article by saying I know absolutely nothing about theatre, musicals or the production that goes into them. So, I'm not going to pretend I'm an expert in staging and the production behind shows on Broadway and the West End. However, I will say I am a massive fan of Trey Parker and Matt Stone; South Park is one of my favourite shows and it still alludes me as to how the duo churn out episodes the way they do. So, the news that Book of Mormon was coming to London's West End meant I was plotting ways to get tickets faster than you can say, "Holy crap, these tickets sell fast." For the uninitiated, The Book of Mormon is the multi-award winning musical written by Trey Parker, Matt Stone and Rob Lopez. The show in general, rather than openly mocking Mormonism, embraces the ridiculousness of religion in general, poking fun not just at Mormonism, but other religions too, but never in a nasty way. The Book of Mormon, as you would expect coming from the duo behind South Park and Team America, is not for the easily offended. This list pertains to the London residency of The Book of Mormon, but all points are relevant to the Broadway and touring versions of the show. The only differences would be in the main cast.
