MISSIONARY MEN WITH CONFIDENCE IN SUNSHINE
"The best musical of this century. So impeccably produced on every level. Heaven on Broadway. The Book of Mormon achieves something like a miracle. All the folks involved in Mormon prove themselves worthy, dues-paying members of the church of Broadway. A celebration of the privilege, for just a couple of hours, of living inside that improbable paradise called a musical comedy." MORE >
STAGE REVIEW: THE BOOK OF MORMON
"The perfect Broadway musical. Behold The Book of Mormon. An exhilarating Broadway musical at once revolutionary and classic, hilarious and humane, funny and obscene, uncompromising in production standards and unafraid of just about anything. This is what 21st century Broadway can be. If Broadway has the balls. Lord knows, The Book of Mormon does. I'm sold; I believe in The Book of Mormon." MORE >

MORMON CONQUEST: "BOOK" YOUR TICKETS FAST FOR THIS INGENIOUS, IRREVERENT MUSICAL
" I The Book of Mormon. A fiendishly well-crafted, hilariously smart - or maybe smartly hilarious - song-and-dance extravaganza. The show's a hoot. The show's a hit. A full-blooded tuner that rejuvenates musicals while displaying a genuine love for the form. An avalanche of filthy gags, butt jokes and wickedly catchy show tunes. Each time you think they can't possibly top a particularly crazed moment, 10 more follow. By the time The Book of Mormon ends in an orgy of over-the-top cheer, you just can't wait to get on that ride all over again." MORE >
'BOOK OF MORMON' DESERVES WORSHIP
'SOUTH PARK' CREATERS SKEWER ALL THINGS HOLY IN THIS WELL-CRAFTED MUSICAL
"Matt and Trey: Where have you been all my life? A pricelessly entertaining act of musical-comedy subversion.

One of the most joyous bundles Broadway has unwrapped in years. Approach the altar of Parker, Stone, and Lopez." MORE >

THEATER REVIEW: 'THE BOOK OF MORMON' AT THE EUGENE O'NEILL THEATRE
"The Book of Mormon has the propulsive verve of a runaway hit. Boisterously outrageous. It's hard to imagine anyone topping the ding-dong hilarity set off by The Book of Mormon. It has all the fearlessness one would expect. Sacred cows, let's just say, are there for the riotous milking. But for all its irreverence, The Book of Mormon has the old-fashioned musical comedy heart of adults who spent much of their adolescence lip-syncing to original cast albums in their finished basements. Nothing is off limits. The farcical stampede is unstoppable. It's not easy to shock a modern-day audience, but The Book of Mormon succeeds with alarming regularity." MORE >
THE BOOK OF MORMON, OR HOW WE OFFENDED EVERYONE AND KEPT 'EM LAUGHING
"The shocking thing about The Book of Mormon is that after all the production numbers that make searing fun of Mormonism, African culture, AIDS, terror, mainline religion and every Western creation myth -- after all of that, the show ends up an unbridled celebration of faith. The show is a hoot -- and a guilty pleasure. All the time, though, Mormon is coming full circle. The Book of Mormon is a triumph – that's not too strong a word: For all its outrageous mockery, the show encourages you appreciate whatever creation story gives you comfort and allows you to appropriate mystery. The ultimate feel-good musical." MORE >
THEATER REVIEW: 'THE BOOK OF MORMON'
"A hilarious musical. The Book of Mormon is gleefully funny. It seldom goes more than 10 seconds without a big laugh. And it's not just about the jokes. They're embedded in a satisfying story, supported by witty, character-relevant songs. Most important for its overall success, the show's creators understand that even a satirical musical needs to have characters you can care about. Mormon is that rare creature that isn't based on a book or a play or a movie – it came totally out of its creators' heads. And what they thought up is one of the most purely enjoyable musicals in years." MORE >

THE JOAN HAMBURG SHOW
"The Book of Mormon is something just spectacular. Trey Parker, Matt Stone, and Bobby Lopez just gave oxygen to Broadway. The kind of Broadway experience we haven't had in years. New, exciting, chance-taking, funny, inappropriate, filthy, beautifully staged, a great brilliant romp of a musical. It's hysterical. It's hysterical. You will not believe how great this cast is. So funny, we almost fell out of our seats. I couldn't even go to sleep last night cause I kept thinking of this stuff." MORE >
'BOOK OF MORMON' POISED TO BUCK BROADWAY BLUES

DIRTY ROTTEN MISSIONARIES
"Messrs. Parker, Lopez and Stone's tuneful score is memorable and hummable, show music that tells stories, deepens characters and gets laughs. So this is the lesson of The Book of Mormon: the elusive trick to succeeding on Broadway today is to write a smart, funny, sweet show, insert tuneful songs and a talented cast and give it a great staging. Subversive, ain't it?" MORE >
