Hilarious and Raunchy
Written by “South Park” creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone together with Avenue Q’s Robert Lopez, The Book of Mormon takes the hit TV series’ trademark satirical, intelligent humor and translates it into an adult-only traditional Broadway Musical Comedy.

Synopsis: The Book of Mormon centers on two young Mormon missionaries sent off to spread the word in a dangerous part of Uganda. Their tale is told alongside the founder Joseph Smith, founder of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
The musical follows two young Mormon teens, Elder Price and Elder Cunningham, as they head to Africa for two years of missionary work. Once they arrive in Uganda, the Mormons are robbed at gunpoint, a guy walks by dragging a dead donkey, a woman staggers under the weight of water in plastic buckets, and then their local contact arrives to lead them in a cheery “Hakuna Matata”-style song: “Vas adiga illahay.” “Does it mean ‘No worries for the rest of our days,’” one of the Mormons asks hopefully. “Kind of,” the Ugandan replies with an exaggerated smile as he begins the next verse — about female circumcision, AIDS and a few other plagues. He translates each word individually and then, still smiling, “I guess it means, “F*** you, God.’” There’s more, but you’ll just have to see Book of Mormon to laugh out loud.
