    LOVED IT!!! AMAZING!!
    I absolutely loved this play. It was so funny! I went with my cousin, her son (16), and my son (17). We laughed and laughed and laughed! I agree with the other reviews. You need to know what kind of person you are. If you have a hard time with jokes that make fun of others then this is NOT the play for you. It has excellent singing, dancing and comedy! I would see it again! SO MUCH FUN!

    Wonderful show
    First, do not take kids! Definitely R. As bsolutely hilarious, such a great show! We sat in seats next to the exterior doors which was great at the end of the show but meant a sprint for the bathroom at intermission.

    Hilarious and irreverent!
    Hilarious. Irreverent. Offensive. Well performed. All of these - and more- describe The Book of Mormon. I loved it and laughed frequently. The couple in front of us was not very amused at the content. I wasn't sure what the story line would be, but it was a very enjoyable production and certainly pushed the edges into possible offensiveness, but not for me. What else would you expect from the South Park creators? I would go and see it again, as I had a great time. The theater was pretty intimate and we ended up with better seats than we thought. If you're looking for a great Broadway musical and you've already seen Spamalot (my all-time favorite, and it's not even close), this is a worthy ticket to find!

    One of my favorites!
    10/10, must see (for adults). I spent the whole show either shocked with my mouth open, or laughing. Well acted, great sets, couldn’t ask for more. Would see it again tomorrow!

I don't know or care about South Park. My wife wanted to see this show and though I looked at many other shows, I got her tickets for Christmas. I knew about the controversial topics and didn't think I would enjoy the show or find it funny. The seats are incredibly tight but the show is the shortest I've seen. I'm 5'10" and my knees were basically touching the back of the seat in front of me and if you are lucky, you can use one armrest. I've yet to be in a NYC theater that isn't similar to this feeling. I was told or read it would be a non-stop laugh riot but I barely laughed at anything, though others were laughing. I felt like I kept waiting to think it was funny and I never did. It wasn't boring, for me it was not a must see at all, but it was just another Broadway show. I would say my wife enjoyed it more than me, which is fine as it was a gift for her.

I could recommend the view from the front mezzanine, we were in the back right and it felt super close with only 3 rows of people who could possibly affect our view.

We had heard this play was irreverent and funny. It was blasphemous and horrid. To my everlasting shame, we left at intermission... Should have walked out way earlier. I love Broadway.. musicals.. plays.. this was THE WORST event I have ever attended and even watching it it til intermission was a very bad idea. I felt like I needed a shower after. Maybe with disinfectant. A lot of the audience was laughing out loud.. I cringed. It is probably the most obscene event I have spent money on. Do due diligence and avoid this piece of garbage at all costs. You will be better for it.

I've been to a lot of Broadway shows and this was by far the cringiest. We heard great things about the show and I was a fan of Avenue Q, so I thought this was a safe bet. After all, there was just too much potential in the title not to be a good show. But I was wrong.

The beginning was a lighthearted and interesting way to get to know the characters, who were all talented. Next, we discovered that two young white male missionaries were going to Uganda. This was the first red flag. The dialogue was offensive and crass and the Ugandans were the butt of the jokes. In 2023, it's plain lazy not to navigate race with some level of thoughtfulness.

My spouse and I thought of a number of potential plots to get creative with an alternate story line. i.e Mormons in New York City? Why not? I Googled the issue to see if others felt the same. There's a NYTimes article about how the cast spoke up against the plot and met with the directors for 2 weeks. This show is a runaway train ready for the sunset. Hopefully audiences will ask for better so that these Black actors can go home at night with some dignity.

Top class show. Outstanding plot, props, acting etc. Worth the money spent on tickets.
But ... avoid bar. No prices / menu on display. Drink prices are excessive (even for NY). 2 single G&T’s in plastic cups cost $44. Sneak in your own or do without for duration of show. Lesson learned

This show is horrible. It portrays the worse stereotypes of blackpeople. I am not sure why this show is still on broadway. I payed almost $600 for my daughters and I to see this show and we felt uncomfortable the entire time. We wanted to leave but we figured since we payed so much to see it, we should stay and see it to the end....while hoping it would change direction. During the show the actors put on long black dildos and girated on each other. I felt disgusted and embarrassed while sitting there and seeing all these white people laugh and had a grand old time at the expense of blacks, gays and the mormon church. We must do better as a society. I know this is supposed to be satire but why at the expense of black people especially when the country is so divided. Shame on the writers. I WANT MY MONEY BACK!!!!

We had a fantastic night! The musical had us laughing from start to finish. Great cast, great music, great show and a tongue-in-cheek look at how the writers of South Park view the Mormon religion and their aim to 'save the world' by converting everyone. If you're woke or easily offended, then this isn't the musical for you. I can't understand the people who book tickets and then endlessly complain about the show. Do a little research about the writers!

Good but expected more after all the Hype. Going in it’s very politically incorrect and sometimes over the top so be prepared for that, also they go for the cheap or repetitive jokes sometimes (they’re are only so many times you can hear “I have maggots in my scrotum” and it be funny. The vocals were not bad but I expected more for it being broadway. I know it seems like I gave the play a lot of criticism but I really did have a fun date night and if you go in with an open mind you will likely enjoy it.

I simply could not imagine a more perfect musical. It has the comedy, it has the satire, it has AMAZING music AND lyrics (I listen to 95% of the songs weekly), it has dark moments/humor which cleverly critique a wide range of social issues from colonialism and racism to the white savior trope and religious fanaticism. Does the musical play on stereotypes? YES, and that is the whole point of the show! It uses stereotypes to play on the audience's expectations to further drive the show's ridiculousness and absurdity.

This is and will always be a divisive show, but I'd say if you meet the following criteria, you'll have a great time:
- You're intelligent, can read between the lines, and decipher the meaning of jokes beyond the surface level.
- You are not overly sensitive (the show offends nearly every type of person there is).
- You are not overly religious.

Have a blast!

I was so very excited to bring my family to this show. so, after dropping $2000 on tickets, we sat and were ready to be wowed. It just wasn't that funny.
The over acting makes sense given the theme, and the amount of times they used filthy language ...it lost it's luster. Had I known, I would have chosen more wisely.
If you're looking for a broadway 'experience', this isn't it. Go see something that's less offensive and actually has some talent and grit.

That has got to rate as the funniest show I've ever been to. Absolutely loved it. In most musicals there are a few banging numbers but in this, every song is witty, edgy and great. The leg room in the theatre wasn't great and I'm not that tall. 177cm. Apart from that amazing 👏 🙌
