Ding dong! The Book of Mormon is here and ready to convert your week into a good time! Playing this week at the Bass Concert Hall, TBOM is the disturbingly funny brainchild of the South Park greats Trey Parker and Matt Stone. It also holds claim to the musical genius of Robert Lopez, known for Avenue Q and Frozen.
The Book of Mormon takes place in the Mormon capital of the world, Salt Lake City. A group of young Mormon missionaries are getting ready to receive their mission assignments. Much to his dismay, the most promising missionary student, Elder Price, is paired up with the goofy and overbearing Elder Arnold Cunningham...and sent to Uganda.
Are they in way over their heads, or will the promise of getting your own planet after you die sway the Ugandans to convert?
Equal parts funny, offensive and fabulous, The Book Of Mormon pokes fun at prejudices and preconceived notions. It stays true to its outrageously cringe-worthy South Park humor roots, while appealing to Broadway audiences with epic song and dance numbers, and perfectly timed guffaws. South Park fan or no, this is one play you should open the door for.
