Nine-time Tony Award-winning Best Musical returns to The Schuster Center
REVIEW BY MIKE WOODY
"Vulgar, crude, and considered racist by some. No, I’m not describing the latest Tweet by President Trump, but the hit musical ‘The Book of Mormon.’ Hilarious, brilliant and huge can also be used to describe the show. That’s not fake news, but the absolute truth. ‘The Book of Mormon’ isn’t for everybody, but if you’ve seen any episode of South Park and liked it, this is the musical for you. If you are offended by people wearing shorts to church, you better not even read any further."
The New York Times calls it “the best musical of this century.” The Washington Post says, “It is the kind of evening that restores your faith in musicals.” And Entertainment Weekly says, “Grade A: the funniest musical of all time.” Jimmy Fallon of “The Tonight Show” calls it “Genius. Brilliant. Phenomenal.” It’s THE BOOK OF MORMON, the nine-time Tony Award-winning Best Musical. This outrageous musical comedy follows the misadventures of a mismatched pair of missionaries, sent halfway across the world to spread the Good Word. Now with standing room only productions in London, on Broadway, and across North America, THE BOOK OF MORMON has truly become an international sensation. Contains explicit language.
