Our NYC-based reviewer, actress Nicola Quinn, saw The Book Of Mormon on Broadway and here's what she had to say!
"If heaven promises to "have it all", then The Book of Mormon is paradise on Broadway - populated with the naughty and nice. After all, this provocative production has been running since 2011 - making it one of New York's top attractions!
Scott Pask's set design amazes throughout, taking us on an adventure from the "Mormon Training Center" in Salt Lake City to the decrepit Ugandan village in Africa. This is no easy task shifting between these parallel worlds and yet he achieves this with tremendous success AND, to add to the challenge, he takes us on the most hysterical and terrifying dream sequence which appears and disappears at lighting fast speed. Pask is undoubtedly deserving of his Tony win in 2011 for Best Scenic Design of a Musical.
Parker, Stone and Lopez have created the most offensive and crude musical, lashing out insults and stereotypes throughout. Judging by their success on the Great White Way and the raucous laughter from the audience, this production proves that we all need to laugh at the absurdity of life and remove the labels from people, before we can truly find our own piece of heaven.
The Book of Mormon is one of the best musicals I have ever seen!"
