Many critics wondered if South Park co-creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker could write an incredible musical performance with their latest work “The Book of Mormon”. If the universal acclaim from critics and audiences has anything to say about it, then this production has more than earned its place as a heartwarming and side-splitting American classic.
The Book of Mormon tells the tale of a pair of Latter-Day Saints missionaries who have come to a remote Ugandan village with a simple goal; to spread the word and faith in Jesus Christ and teach the lessons of Joseph Smith to a village in need. But when the missionaries arrive, they quickly discover that the world is a lot harsher than their upbringing would have them believe. The villagers are initially cold to their faith, because they have the bigger concerns of HIV/AIDS, female genital mutilation, and oppression from a village warlord to contend with. But as the story progresses, their faith is tested, tried and you’ll have to come out and see The Book of Mormon to find out if they succeed.
Critics agree that The Book of Mormon is breathtaking and hilariously funny, even while being one of the filthiest and most offensive productions on Broadway. But despite this fame, the play is still seen as a worthy production that can stand alongside classics such as The King and I or The Sound of Music. The New York Post even says that audience members were sore from laughing so hard and long during the production, while The Daily Show’s John Stewart could only shower the creators with praise for their production.
If you want to watch what all the talk is about, then make sure you come out to see The Book of Mormon on Saturday 14th January 2023 when it comes to the iconic Thelma Gaylord PAT At Civic Center Music Hall in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on Saturday 14th January 2023.
