THE BOOK OF MORMON

Composed by “South Park” creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone and Avenue Q’s Robert Lopez, THE BOOK OF MORMON is an old-style musical with a modern sensibility. This blockbuster show features several big song-and-dance numbers accompanied by some old-fashioned Broadway belting. An equal opportunity offender, the show playfully pokes fun at religion, sexuality, poverty and race, while inspiring an after-the-show discussion of religion in general.  We recommend checking out the cast recording to get an idea of the show’s humor and language.  THE BOOK OF MORMON contains explicit language.  For more information, please visit the show’s website.
