It says something about their reputations going before them, but I was actually expecting this to be more extreme. It's hardly take-your-gran material though and still incredibly unique on the west end stage. 

I would have liked to have seen more from the supporting Mormons too, they were brilliant, so I was disappointed they were under-used. 

But as an intelligent spectacle on a grand scale, it's a pretty magnificent beast.

Ah Book of Mormon...It took me such a long time to see you, and my expectations were so high. And yep, they were pretty much met! The first act is, as is often the way, the most hilarious and engaging. I laughed so hard at at least two of the songs. Though I must admit, there were often moments when I genuinely cringed, and thought maybe they were going a little too far. Certain topics (if you see it, you'll know what I mean) that are in bad taste, rather than being ironically funny. My aunt and uncle asked me if they should see it, and I said no: The type of humour is really only suitable for those with dark sides! But if you enjoy that kind of humour, definitely see it - it can be very, very funny.

Loved it! Had heard friends and colleagues raving about it, so had to give it a go and we were not disappointed! The songs are hilarious and lewd, but no catchy enough to get stuck in your head (luckily), and the scenery and acting were just perfect. Would recommend to anyone!

David H

So much fun! I took a date and fortunately she loved it! I've still got half the songs stuck in my head, I have to be careful not singing them in the office! Definitely got near the knuckle a few times but I was never offended.

Karen M

I went with no preconceptions. So was extremely pleased to find i was laughing from the 'get go' & realised I was watching with a permanent smile on my face.

It was very funny. Yes i was annoyed about the swearing when i realised thats what they were saying. i think a different word could have been used.

But over all it was brilliant, & i'll never be able to see the Mormon Boys at my door again, the same way.

Thank you for a brilliant evening.

I have waited over 12 months to see this show and was promised the best two hours of my life. I was not disappointed. Having experienced Mormon-ism first hand while working in Salt Lake City, I loved every minute of this entertaining and surprisingly accurate history lesson. I would see it again!!!

Ev W

clever, funny,  near the mark brillance

The audiance resounded this

Natalie B

Outrageosly funny and Gobsmackingly Entertaining.  I would recommend it to anyone who isn't easily offended!

Deborah B

Really enjoyed this, very funny, excellent cast.  And you could understand everything they said, unlike some shows we've seen recently.  Just don't take your grandmother!

Jennifer F

I have already seen Book of Mormon twice and have not ruled out a third. It is hilarious and the music is so catchy you will be singing slightly inappropriate songs for days.

Aisling S

I was expecting it to be funny, if a little odd (consider the vague description), but I wasn't expecting it to be quite so funny! I spent most of it laughing, sniggering, giggling and out right guffawing; so much so that I actually missed some of the song lyrics (remedied by buying the soundtrack!) 

I wouldn't recommend it for children, or the more uptight PC sort, but anyone who knows how to have a laugh should definitely try and get a ticket (you'll have to remortgage your home to afford it, but it'll be totally worth it)!

Without giving too much away: 10/10, black humour, laugh out loud spectacle that I would recommend! Keep an eye on Time Out London and Theatre People for new dates and cheap on the spot tickets :)

Jiwen Z

Most hilarious musical I've ever seen. No wonder why the tickets are always so popular. Definitely recommend to all.

Peter Cumming

I've been wanting to see this for sometime so was over the moon when I saw the great offer form Time Out, the show didn't disappoint. Side splitting controversies from the word go. Note of warning this is not one for the easily offended. (Or blindingly religious!).

Intelligent, controversial comedy genius.

Haas diga eebowai!

Phi M

Guys you can take an uber taxi to this for free if you are a first time user, with the promotion code "uberisthefuture". Praise be to God!

Robert W

This is the funniest show I have ever seen in the theatre and I've seen hundreds over the years. It is such a pity they could never expose other religions in the same way as they would both have to go into hiding. But that's religion for you. Not to be missed if you enjoy laughing and are not a stick in the mud or obviously a Mormon. 


I am Mormon myself and every time I think about this it just makes me sick. It feels like a slap in the face, but it isn't even realistic at all. It creates misconceptions that really hurt.

Ciaran Sanders

Original, fun, clever, and an utterly hilarious spectacle. The singing and dancing was so impressive. The whole thing was amazing! The best 2 and a half hours I have spent in London!


This is not something you want to miss out on! The whole theatre was laughing from beginning to end. You will most likely find yourself singing 'Hello' all the way home.

C. Richmond

When things come highly recommended by masses from all directions, it can be a let down. I am really happy to say that this show that lived up to the raves. I was prepared for mass crudeness, there is some, but not to the extent I expected. It is a feel good show, with uplifting music, real belly laughs, giggles but also some seriousness. Was in the dress circle quite high up and could still see well, great theatre, art deco style, feels like an ocean liner of c1920s . I am not that hot on musicals but would see this again. Go with an open mind and prepare to be seriously entertained and amused!

Vicky Ball

Laugh a minute, from the moment we took our seats we were in stitches. But be warned this is not for the easily offended! Our seats were high but it didn't detract from the performance. Very efficient service from Time Out, tickets arrived promptly. I'd highly recommend this for a fun night out.

Elisabeth Elphick

This show will have you gasping in shock and crying with laughter all in the same minute. The acting was brilliant as was the singing and the storyline. You will need to go in there prepared to be slightly shocked otherwise you'll be finding yourself maybe offended by some of the story but as long as you are aware of this you should enjoy it immensely. The whole show is brilliant,there wasn't one part that I would say wasn't amazing. All in all a great night and a great show. Definitely recommend and I'm sure we will be back to see it again.

S Mahar

Hilarious from start to finish! Great fun and a wonderful night out. You'll find yourself humming the songs all the way home.

Audrey Lee

I am seventy six and half crippled with arthritis but I was determined to blast a way from Sussex to see this play because I did not believe anyone could make a musical out of a religion. Well, they did and they did it by throwing all fear and squeamishness to the winds - an iconoclastic scalpel was used to cut down beliefs everyone knew to be not just stupid but plain wrong - superstitious ways of curing aids, female genital mutilation and perverted teaching about God . I loved it. It was, above all else, honest - even more so than funny (I wish I could read all the words). That's leaving out the incredible energy and talent of the dancing and singing! What superb theatre!


A delight from beginning to end, the Book of Mormon was utterly hilarious, cleverly crafted and impeccably performed. Witty, filthy, irreverent, but never careless or crass, although I'm not sure my Catholic mother would approve of the "F*%! You God" number. My fiance and I left the theatre humming the tunes and woke up this morning with them still ringing in our ears. A must see.


One of the best musicals I've ever seen. Biting satire, but not for the faint hearted! We laughed through every minute of the performance. The production was slick, music was excellent (we were humming all the way home), and well worth the ticket price.


A very enjoyable romp, with irreverent humour, good music and several messages there which can leave you thinking. Some of the subject matter can make you cringe, and one wonders if it was necessary, but then don't take your maiden aunt. Can't wait for the sequel - the Book of Arnold.

Elizabeth Moore

Probably one of the best musicals I've seen in the West End! How they manage to smile like that from start to finish is beyond me! Quality cast, laugh a minute [good sense of humour required!] ...I'd see it again in a heartbeat!


Good perfomances, lots of energy, but really did not live up to expecations. Was expecting it to be much funnier and a lot sharper, sort of a bit obvious. A fun musical but nothing special.

Kim Mann

This show has you laughing, singing along, and all round enjoyment for 2 and a half hours non-stop. A cross between high school musical and curb your enthusiasm!


Brilliant! It's more Team America than South Park. It's camp, hugely engaging and hilarious. We had the understudy for the main part and he was perfect. Can't imagine the lead being better. Fantastic voices, endearing characters and plenty of laughs.


Disappointing. It was a good show and there were definitely some funny moments but I was expecting a lot more after all of the hype. Granted it's in a different medium but an average episode of South Park is far funnier


Fun, well-choreographed, with some great gags. Somehow though I was expecting more - there needed to be more bite.

Kerry Youlden

The Book of Mormon was one of the most hilarious shows I have seen for such a long time! Pushing the comedy boundaries, but in a camp and incredibly endearing way that makes you feel unsure whether you should be laughing or sympathising with the characters. Wonderfully outstanding performances from all cast members; which you do not often see. Appealing to people of all ages and walks of life ... but prepare to be shocked! (In a good way!) Fantastic theatrical experience that I have now told EVERYONE about! I'd go again in an instant!


Fabulous show! Saw it for the second time, and it continued to delight and amuse. I came out and my cheeks hurt from smiling and laughing so much.

Katy McCann

Great show, not for the faint hearted or easily offended! I laughed the entire way through as did the entire audience, a definite must see.


It might be worth skipping a meal or two if that's what it takes to buy one of these Mormon tickets: they're not cheap, but they are worth every penny. A show that will have you grinning from ear to ear and singing along to the chirpy melodies (before you realise just WHAT the lyrics area - not to be repeated on the tube afterwards), whilst looking around for permission to laugh. Don't worry, everyone else will be bouncing on their seats, unable to keep in the giggles because of the outrageous, satirical comedy. A must-see.


Laughed 'til I cried!!! As always, South Park creators are equal opportunity offenders!


Funny from begging to end, my cheeks were hurting from laughing so much. Must see, especially for a south park fan, the jokes can be offensive and need to be taken lightheartedly but the acting and production is brilliant. Worth every penny!


Fantastic show, we were laughing from the very start! Would 100% recommend it but go with an open mind and don't go if you are easily offended!

Keith Lovell

Very funny straight from the first scene! Close to the knuckle on a number of occasions and not for the easily offended. Even listening to the CD soundtrack makes me smile a week after seeing the show. Highly recommended!!

Darren Grange

I had heard so many people say that this was a fantastic show, I just had to see it for myself. How wrong was they, it's not fantastic its Awesome!!!!!! I havent laughed so much in a long time and was by far the best production I have seen this year. Can't wait to get tickets to see it again.


The show was just amazing!!! Funny scenario, great actors, perfect production!!


Absolutely hilarious and really well done. At certain points you think 'did they really just say that?!' Not for the easily offended. Somehow, they take subject matter that you would think taboo in musical theater and presented it in such a way that will make you laugh to tears. Enjoy laughing at things that are normally out of bounds to everyday humour and watch the offence ripple round the theatre.
