The Book of Mormon Reviews
Scott from Edinburgh
I'd heard the buzz around the book of Mormon and some controversy but it is completely satirical and points fun against the sometimes ignorant world view of Africans. The songs were brilliant and catchy, great dance numbers, specifically one with a twist... Certain scenes were so funny I made a point to look around the room and literally saw people fall off seats, holding their sides laughing, it was fantastic, they received a 5-10 min standing ovation. Brilliant, would go back and see them elsewhere.

HILARIOUS AND EXPERTLY ACTED
Excellent performances and top notch comedy from Parker & Stone. We thought it was brilliant, more than worth the time and money!
Phil from London, England
MORE MORE MORMON!
Laugh first and reflect afterwards…and you WILL laugh if you need to and let yourself. I feared that satire had been squeezed and stifled but here it is in all its edgy and incisive glory in wonderful songs, tetchy exchanges, facial expressions and nuanced interwoven cultural ‘morality’. If you don’t laugh at satire and see the world through a wokey lens, don’t bother going .. but if you are hungry for wicked humour and savage satire and are not easily offended then you’ll love it! Check your heart health first though, as laughing this hard puts a strain on it. Brilliant cast acting and singing their hearts out. I’m not a big musical fan so am selective, but we selected well with The Book of Mormon well worth the ticket price. Brilliant!

DEFINITELY WORTH A TRIP TO THE PRINCE OF WALES THEATRE
Shocking, funny and a bit twisted but very entertaining - well worth seeing!
Mike from Edinburgh,
GOES TOO FAR WITH CHILD/BABY ABUSE JOKES
Im not prudish but the jokes about f…….. babies is really not funny. There is never a situation where child/baby sex abuse can be used as a joke. The rest is funny.
Laetitia from London, England
EXTREMELY OFFENSIVE BUT NOT FUNNY.
Not only humans has managed to crucified Jesus Christ but now they are laughing at him.Even if he wasn't God Jesus Christ was the most beautiful man who had ever walked on this EARTH. This play is an excellent reflection of this miserable,empty,disrespectful,stupid,without any Morality at all.....of the modern world. I wasn't expecting much from the guy who wrote the South Park which i already found vulgar,violent and disturbing. I went because my friend wanted to watch it. Played with my game before it ends. Apart the story being vile,the actors were great dancers and singers. Beautiful lighting and decorating.
Michael R from Shropshire
Unnecessary and unfunny blasphemy and crudity. Good performances by the cast. Some good songs but some were just loud and noisy, with little tune. Very overrated musical.

Comical musical LOUD!
Don't be afraid to be jerked out of your comfort zone for a comedy musical
Don't be afraid to be jerked out of your comfort zone for a comedy musical. Yes, it's rude, it's lewd, even. But that's exactly why we loved it!Read full review
