WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR.

I saw this on broadway with the opening cast and it was fantastic so couldn't wait for it to hit the west end. The lead characters were amazing and as good as the original cast. The ensemble were fantastic and I couldn't criticise any of it. Is it rude? Yes. Is it offensive absolutly not. Infact the story line is so clever and fills you with hope and endearment, the music was expertly written and the dancing was slick, clever and totally entertaining. If you are a fan of musicals this is a MUST see.

I COULDN'T FAULT IT

I saw this last night and thought it was excellent from the word go. Thankyou so much to every single member of the cast. I really enjoyed watching all of you because you all have your own personalities and passion and you believe in it totally. You've really inspired me. My only comment would be that the £75 price tag means it's quite inaccessible to most people although it's been years since I went to the West End and maybe that is the price now (?) I recommend this show and I'm not a fan of musicals. If you want something edgy and different and the thrill of seeing incredible talent then you will have a really good time :-)

NOT YOUR MOTHER'S MUSICAL BUT OH, SO MUCH FUN!

I saw the Book of Mormon with a friend and what can I say, we laughed from start to finish. Sometimes it was that slightly awkward laughter, sometimes the "Oh my gosh, did they just say that?" laughter and other times the belly-filled laughter from songs and scenes that are just plain hilarious. It's rude and offensive and probably something you wouldn't watch with you folks, but its the most fun I've had in a theatre in a looong time!

WEAR YOUR WATERPROOF MASCARA

Clever, funny and brilliantly performed. Best show I've seen for years. Laughed so much I looked like a demented panda at the end of the evening, or so my romantic husband told me.

FANTASTIC

We had waited a few years to see this show as kept getting cancelled due to the pandemic, but the wait was worth it. The fabulous talented cast are amazing but we did struggle to make out the lyrics of the songs which you need to understand the story fully, what we did catch is shocking, unbelievable but absolutely hilarious. We don't know if it had anything to do with the sound system but speaking & listening to other people they said the same. Anyway we will be going back to catch it again in the future and il make sure I know all the songs by heart. Were from fife so we made a day off it in Edinburgh visiting a few pubs and had a meal at The Auld 100 pub which was very good.

RIP ROARING SATIRICAL FUN

I really really enjoyed this show. The staging and effects for Book of Mormon are fantastic. The songs are fun and interesting with lots of layers in the lyrics moving through the cast. From other reviews it seems you either love it or hate it, but from my perspective if you think this is racist, bigoted or blasphemous then you've complete missed the point. Everything -everything is done with irony turned up to the max. This show shines a light on the making and acceptance of belief, be it having faith the someone finding gold plates or that you f**k babies to cure aids. The whole point is that people believe essentially whatever they've been told but maybe that's ok if the focus is kind, which is how in the end we finish with the book of Arnold. Like Southpark you have to move past the surface of what looks like a poo joke but is actually a very pertinent allegory.

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!
