This outrageous musical comedy from the creators of South Park, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, and Bobby Lopez, co-writer of Avenue Q and Frozen, follows the misadventures of a mismatched pair of missionaries.
The New York Times calls it ‘The best musical of this century.’ The Washington Post says, 'It is the kind of evening that restores your faith in musicals.’ And Entertainment Weekly raves, 'Grade A: the funniest musical of all time.' It’s The Book of Mormon, the nine-time Tony Award and four-time Olivier Award-winning Best Musical.
This outrageous musical comedy follows the misadventures of a mismatched pair of missionaries, sent on a mission to a place that's about as far from Salt Lake City as you can get. Now with sold-out productions in London, on Broadway, and in North America, Melbourne and Sydney, The Book of Mormon has become a worldwide sensation.
Edinburgh Playhouse until 8th October, part of UK Tour

Stewart - ★★★★★
"Downright hilarious! This has been tagged by critics as the funniest musical of all time and I can see why! Though definitely not for everyone - it is by the team behind South Park (wait until you experience the Spooky Mormon Hell Dream!)! So expect bad language, sexual references and comedy that takes a risk with how far they can push it - but that's what makes it sooo much fun. There's a gag rate here that's pretty impressive.
There's also behind all the rude crude humour a really sweet tale of friendship and also a nice take on faith and what it really means to people.
The music, costumes, set were all fantastic - choreography spot on. Performances by the large cast outstanding with special mention to Connor Pierson spiky turn as the emphatically upbeat Elder Cunningham and Aviva Tulley's gorgeous singing.
This is a fantastic show - I'll probably go see it again! So don't miss out! But remember that age rating! 14+
