Time Out says

Often, the phrase “Back by popular demand” amounts to nothing more than hype, but in the case of The Book of Mormon, it fits like magic underwear. Trey Parker, Matt Stone and Robert Lopez’s nine-Tony-winning cultural phenomenon resurrects at the Pantages. Parker and Stone, of course, are best known for South Park and Lopez is a fairly newly minted EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony) winner. Mormon follows a group of idealistic missionaries as their beliefs run into the harsh realities of life for the African villagers they cheerfully hoped to convert. The tuneful megahit is not for kids, but if you happen to bring one, it’s earmuffs time when they start singing “Hasa Diga Eebowai.” And before that. And after that. Mormon is hilarious and offensive, and hilariously offensive, and the New York Times called it “the best musical of this century.”
