Aptly referred to as ‘God’s Favorite Musical’, "The Book of Mormon" was created by iconic duo, Matt Stone and Trey Parker (“South Park”), along with Robert Lopez (“Frozen”, “Avenue Q”). The story follows two young missionaries who are sent to Uganda to convert local citizens to the Mormon religion. A full-fledged adult musical, the show utilizes satire in the best possible way. For fans of black humor, "The Book of Mormon" will have you laughing throughout its entire duration. Vogue Magazine is calling the show "the filthiest, most offensive, and—surprise—sweetest thing you’ll see on Broadway this year, and quite possibly the funniest musical ever."
The Book of Mormon Story
"The Book of Mormon" is about two Mormon missionaries, who are sent to Uganda to try and convert local citizens to their faith. One missionary, Elder Price, is a playful go-getter with a strong dedication to his quirky faith. His partner, Elder Cunningham, is bit socially awkward and, as a result, has the tendency to embroider the truth. Something that ends up landing him in trouble. Upon their arrival in Africa, Price and Cunningham learn that in a society plagued by AIDS, poverty and violence, a successful mission may not be as easy as they expected.

The Book of Mormon Reviews
“Much of this show’s enduring freshness comes from its unabashed identity as an archetypal musical. It’s a celebration of the spirit that moves otherwise sane human beings to accept the absurdity of people setting their cares and woes to sprightly song.”
– The New York Times
"What’s so uniquely winning about The Book of Mormon is its scruffy humanism, its eagerness to redeem its characters—even its smaller ones. The supporting cast is astonishingly good; Rory O’ Malley, as openly closeted Elder McKinley, comes close to stealing the show more than once."
– New York Mag
