The Book Of Mormon Theatre Breaks in London
The creators of South Park have given London a musical that has been knocking them dead over on Broadway for some time now. The Book of Mormon Theatre Breaks continues to get excellent reviews and perform to sell out shows at the Prince of Wales Theatre, proving that the New York Times may well have been right when it called the show “the best musical of this century”.
The Book of Mormon follows a pair of mismatched Mormon boys sent on a mission to a place that’s about as far from Salt Lake City as you can get: Uganda, where the local population are threatened by a brutal warlord and who have no time for organised religion of any kind!
This unlikely scenario is the basis of an hilarious lampooning of organized religion AND musical theatre that has had London theatre-goers in stitches for over three years!
I wont bore you with what the critics think, suffice it to say that reading their oevres it is more like reading the entries to a competition to provide quotes for the show’s posters… now there is an idea for a musical!

The Book of Mormon was everything I thought it would be- rude, on-topic and hilarious. To say too much about it would be to spoil the show- just go see it! Unless you are easily offended of course...

Hotel was okay, could've been better service but the room did its job which is all I needed really. The show itself was wonderful, and my seat was superb! I also booked to see 3 other shows during my 2 night stay so made sure to pack it all in. All in all, an excellent trip to the capital!

Ahh, if only all West End shows spat you out at 10pm with a huge grin stretched upon your face as did The Book of Mormon last night!The show does exactly what it says on the tin - it's rude, crude & utterly hilarious. There wasn't a stagnant point in the whole of the production and the only time I looked at my watch was when the interval seemed to happen five minutes into curtain up (in fact it was just under an hour).The Book of Mormon is a fast paced show that doesn't let the audience draw breath from one outrageous joke to the next let alone give any of the cast a five minute sit down & re-coup.Definitely not one for the kids - there were no apparent under 18s that I could see in the audience - and us adults rose to the occasion by giving a well-deserved standing ovation at the end.
