The Book of Mormon
Since its 2011 premiere, The Book of Mormon has impressed theatregoers in Broadway and the world over. Those who are yet to experience this production need to reserve tickets to the show immediately. Book of Mormon Broadway is currently running at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre.
What is the story about?
The story deals with two missionaries, Cunningham and Price, who are sent on a quest to convert the locals in Uganda to Mormonism. However, when they reach the country, the missionaries are shocked to see the state of affairs there. The locals are combating against threats, such as AIDS, oppression and famine in a bid to keep their families safe.
At such a time, religion is the last thing on these people’s minds. Both missionaries realise upon arrival that converting these people into their Mormon faith is going to be trickier than they first thought. Book of Mormon Broadway’s plot showcases the more important aspects of human life that religion often does not address or solve.
The characterization of the two missionaries also attracts audience members to this lovely production. Elder Cunningham is socially awkward although he often means well. However, he has a habit of twisting the truth to fit his narration, which can often become problematic. On the other hand, Elder Price is enthusiastic about his work and possesses an immense dedication to the Mormon faith.
Black humour at its best
While the actual incidences and character reactions can be incredibly funny, the main goal of the production is to make audiences think and ponder. It is perhaps one of the qualities that led Ben Bratley, the chief theatre critic at The New York Times to declare the production as century’s best musical play.
The witty and appropriate music is another charming aspect of the play. It is sure to impress fans, with many tunes remaining in your head long after you return from the theatre.

At 2 hour and 30 minutes, the musical has a relatively long run time. However, there is an interval in between. Remember that the mature themes in the production are suitable for people over 17 years. The theatre restricts the entry for children below 4 years.
